Bound! A Protein-Drug Matching Card Game
Bound! is a card game for ages 12 and up where players compete to match the most Drugs to Protein targets. The Bound! card deck features 15 unique pairs of drug and protein structures. There are six different card types comprised of three varieties of target-drug pairing: Bacteria to Antibiotic, Virus to Antiviral and Cancer to Anticancer. The cards can be used to play memory games and can be used as a regular card deck (see rules for more information). There are 60 cards in each deck, with each pair represented twice.
This game is a collaboration between two data resources: The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), which is curated by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) and RCSB Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB).
