Newton v. Galileo in ultimate historical grudge match of a board game

The worker-placement board game The New Science lets you play as one of five legendary scientists. Each turn requires dividing three action tokens between research, experimentation, or publishing. Players can learn about scientists’ conflicting motivations, and pretending to be Issac Newton sounds plain fun. 

The game is currently on Kickstarter and has met its funding goal of $15,000.
