Health Genie

5 subjects were used and they were  recruited by random. I approached them and ask if they would like to participate in an experiment. They have no health conditions and unfamiliar with the gene mutation MTHFR. 


Data was collected by writing the information down on a piece of paper. The game is a card game. There is a major game board, food cards, specialty cards, and a timer. Responses are measured by days and the health of the baby.


The results of each player’s baby’s health I compared.The subjects were asked to maintain/ improve the health of the baby. The players were given direction cards to begin and play. I did not want to over shadow and explain because I wanted to see if my game was functional.


The game is functional however; it can still be more challenging. The game still is too easy. The first round the players did not do so well with understanding which foods were gluten free. But by the next rounds they had a better understanding and became more competitive. It was a success because they were learning about it and wanting to know more baby
