Board Games at Odum: Peptide

A guide to help you navigate Odum Library's board game collection and the world of gaming.



Peptide is a strategic board game themed around how all living cells build protein! Players compete to link amino acid cards side-by-side to build their peptide chain (a fancy word for a protein). Each turn, players make thoughtful selections from a limited number of openly available organelle cards. Their selection rewards them with either resources (e.g. ATP tokens or mRNA cards) or actions (e.g. connecting an amino acid to their peptide chain). Final scores are based upon the amino acids in your peptide chain, and the highest score wins!
