In 1970, John Conway came up with a 1-player game called Game of Life. The Game of Life is a mathematical game that simulates ‘colonies’ that grow or die based on how crowded or lonely they are and is known for the way it creates a beautiful organic display out of randomness.

MAKE presents the Game of Life kit, Make one kit and keep it on your desk, or attach multiple kit modules together as shown in the video to create a large display, like a cube. Get one, four or fifty at the Maker Shed store!
