The Qubit Game

In honor of World Quantum Day, which you probably didn’t celebrate, Google and Doublespeak Games just launched The Qubit Game. It’s an oddly addictive and deep browser game that lets you “build” a quantum computer, no quantum physics degree required. The game centers around quantum bits, also called Qubits, which are a quantum computer’s version of binary. These small units of “quantum information” experience something called “superposition,” which is why a quantum computer can process complicated data at an unprecedented rate. Of course, the science doesn’t matter, because this is just a game. In The Qubit Game, you try to collect as many Qubits as possible without letting them get too hot. Over time, your quantum computer will become powerful enough to complete big research projects, and you can earn neat upgrades to better manage all your Qubits.

Qupcakes

teaches basic quantum operations via a bakery game. Premise: You, Vamperette, work at a cupcake store. The head baker is a kind but absentminded vampire who often places the wrong cupcake on the conveyor belt to serve to the customer. Luckily, you have access to special technology that allows you to change the cupcake before it gets to the customer. For each group of customers that arrive, your job is to look at the cupcakes and use your limited number of special devices to modify any cupcakes necessary to serve the customers. Some days, you create new devices, but also sometimes devices are broken. So each day (level), you have a different set of devices available to you. The game mechanics are inspired by Cooking Fever. (The devices happen to be quantum operations, and the attributes of the quantum bits have been mapped to attributes of cupcakes) The cupcakes are going to be placed in boxes (with a picture on the outside). Those boxes go down the conveyer belt and open up once they get to the customer. A bubble shows a happy or unhappy customer based on whether they got what they wanted.

Queue Bits: Quantum fundamentals game

A game in which Connect 4 meets superposition. Like the classical game, players drop tokens into a board, and the goal is to place 4 in a row or column. In this game, we explore the effect of superposition and the timing of measurement to encourage players to think through how strategy changes based on when measurement occurs. In all three superposition modes, instead of dropping tokens that are red or yellow, they are dropping tokens that may be in superposition - tokens have between a 25% and 100% probability of measuring the desired color. However, the timing of when measurement occurs changes what information you have and the significance of tokens in particular locations. In the first mode, the measurement occurs when the token is placed. In the second mode, measurement does not occur until the board is full, and then measurement occurs in the same order in which they were placed. In the final mode, measurement also does not occur until the board is full, but the players themselves take turns choosing which is the next to be measured.

Project Qute : Quantum Chess Puzzles

introduces students to basic probability, quantum measurement, superposition, and entanglement, as well as the difference between modern and quantum computing. These concepts are essential to many quantum technologies.

Qubit Touchdown - A Quantum Computing Board Game

Qubit Touchdown is an easy-to-learn, football-themed, two-player competitive game. Take turns moving the football across the field by playing action cards. Whoever scores the most touchdowns wins! The game's mechanics come directly from quantum computing, but absolutely no knowledge of quantum computing is necessary to play.

The game is available print-on-demand from Game Crafter, and was created by Dr. Tom Wong, www.thomaswong.net.
