Phylo TCG: Women in Health Research Starter Deck




This deck, hosted by the Michael Smith Laboratories, is a STARTER deck for a hand building game that looks at the challenges in gender inequity from a health perspective. This includes topics that look at societal elements as well as those with a medical angle. This deck is a stand alone game, and was designed to provide a more authentic and therefore more thought provoking look at diversity issues.

Note that the game is played in similar fashion to the Phylo GSA deck and the Phylo WWEST WISE deck, except that there is an addition of a mechanic that divides negative cards from positive cards (see rule set for more details).

Note that all materials can also be downloaded for free at * (Gender Inequity) Women in Health Research – PHYLO: THE TRADING CARD GAME


PHYLO is a project that began as a reaction to the following nugget of information: Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures.

PHYLO is also: (1) a card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform notions of biodiversity and STEM; (2) an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development; and (3) FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
