Infection is a board game where players are viruses trying to reach the nucleus of the cell. Viruses can only enter the game if they match the correct amino acid. The concentric circles of the cellular board game rotate after each play, mimicking the dynamics of a cell. Each organelle that the viruses encounter has different effects on the play.
