The scripted card game is the pinacle of our work so far (July 2018). It teaches the core skills of outbreak investigation.

The interactive teaching activity is designed for groups of 16 or 26 people. It covers epidemic curves, 2x2 tables, relative risks, attack rates, cases explained by exposure, symptom patterns and in the 26 card set also stratification and confounding.

Players draw one card that describes the food they ate and if ill, their symptoms with time of first onset.

That information is collected subsequently during the teaching activity as the outbreak unfolds and more complicated topics are covered.
