This game is a collaboration between one of the most simple intelligences on earth - and the most advanced one. Slime mold and humans. Slime mold is an informal name given to several kinds of unrelated eukaryotic organ-isms that can live freely as single cells, but can aggregate together to form multicellular reproductive structures.  In this game, s small colony of slime old is placed in the middle of each petri dish. Once a day the players can place one piece of oat (their favourite food) at any of the dots inside the petri dish. When the slime mold connects to the oat, the piece may move in that direction. The topic of the game is to take the opponents pieces. Due to the slow movement of slime mold, the players can move their pieces once a day. The project was nominated for iGem Synthetic Biology Art Prize 2019.
