Game on! Open-access Phylo trading card game developed

Initiated by Dr. Dave Ng, the Phylo trading card game started as an exercise in crowdsourcing, open access, and open game development to create a trading card game. This project has grown to broach elements of game-based science education, ecological literacy, and hackathon mechanics within the teaching community. Given its flexible and open workflow, Phylo has benefited from the input of many communities of expertise, and many collaborations (both formal and spontaneous) leading to a continually expanding resource that is under constant reiteration.
