A Canadian inventor believes he has found the answer to the world’s Ebola problem, with a new card game designed to educate players about the virus.

Called Ebola Outbreak: Save the World, the game is designed to help raise awareness and prevent the spread of the virus.

Inventor Fred Mundle from New Brunswick has already secured a copyright for the game and is now looking for a distributor.

The retired teacher and artist originally thought up the game designed to spark discussion among players about Ebola in the mid-90s.

He had pitched the game to big name toy firms including Parker Brothers, but to no avail.

CBC reports that Ebola Outbreak: Save the World follows a top trumps style of gameplay with the overall aim to rid the world of the virus.

“The big dream is that a big manufacturer would pick this game up,” said Mundle.

“Perhaps there would be some funds forthcoming and perhaps, I am OK with the lion’s share going to an Ebola research programme.

“If the game is ended with a ‘cure score’, then the winner saves the world, and that is called a true win.”
