Occam's Razor

A card game and study aid for those serious about medicine, but also fun and simple enough for friends and family to play!

From the designers of 'The Healing Blade' comes Nerdcore Medical's second game release, Occam's Razor. Created by two physicians to be both a game and a study aid, this is a must-have for health sciences students and professionals. Quick to play and easy to learn, the game draws on the classic theories of Occam's razor and Hickam's dictum to challenge your diagnostic ability. Play with a group, or take a break and play a game of solitaire.

There are four different ways to play:

  • Gin Rummy Occam: Collect the highest scoring hand of matching symptoms.
  • Deduce the Disease: Be the first to deduce the hidden disease card.
  • Occam Solitaire: Match symptoms in order to clear all your face-down piles.
  • Spoons: Include family and friends in a fun, fast-paced game that requires no previous medical knowledge.

Game on! Have fun, and learn while you're at it.
