XENON PROFITEER (Eagle-Gryphon Games, 2 to 5 players, ages 13 and up, 30-45 minutes; $29.99)
I must admit that the theme of Xenon Profiteer did nothing to entice me to try the game. Science was never amongst my favorite subjects in school, and I had a strong aversion to chemistry. Indeed, I somehow managed to escape high school without ever taking a full semester of it. So, a game that involves distilling the chemical element Xenon (Xe) from a variety of other natural air elements generated about as much interest in me as a root canal.
