These Virus Trading Cards Should Be a Real Game

The best games are the geekiest games — which is why I desperately want these virus trading cards to become a real thing. They were created just this week by Eleanor Lutz. In fact, the versions she's posted online are also animated, showing a full 3D view — well, the external protein shell at least — of the viruses described on the cards. They're accurate, too, because the animations were created using a molecular modelling program with data from the worldwide Protein Data Bank.

But whatever. They'd make a great real-life game. They might even usurp my pack of CPU Top Trumps.
