This article describes a board game based on the quest to detect gravitational waves. Two or more players compete to detect the most gravitational waves by hiring scientists and engineers, researching detector technology, and building the most sensitive ground-based interferometric gravitational-wave detector. Players must balance detector upgrades and observing runs so as to maximize their detection potential, and be the first to detect the elusive gravitational wave.
