Today the term ‘quantum’ is often encountered in the media, not only in connection with scientific research and technology, but also in combination with almost anything that may come to mind. You can find quantum chocolate, the quantum car, soap, love, the mind, the soul, etc. This reflects, on one hand, how the notion of quantum physics is somehow associated to efficiency and technological power, but also how the counterintuitive behaviour of quantum mechanics remains elusive to most people. As we are entering an era of quantum technologies, it is essential to shed some light on the basic principles of quantum physics. Games can provide a versatile and fun way to immerse people from all backgrounds to the counterintuitive rules of the quantum world.
