Occam's Razor: The Diagnostician's Dilemma is a study aid/game for those wishing to increase their familiarity with a variety of symptoms and diseases, and/or keep their memory fresh. There are 4 different ways to play, from solitaire to small groups to large groups. See if you can match the correct symptoms to the disease. 62 cards describing patient symptoms, from "Chest Pain" to "Painful Urination." 14 must-know conditions, from Acute Appendicitis to Septic Arthritis. Useful for USMLE Step 2 CS Prep. A collaboration between doctors and a game designer, honed and play-tested to be as useful for studying as it is fun to play. Can also be played in "Spoons" mode, to include family and friends with no previous medical knowledge.
