From the Publisher: 

Ion is a game about chemistry! But more specifically, it’s a card-drafting game about building compounds! Players are given a hand of ion and elements cards, and must select one of those cards either to bond to a card already on the table, or to set it alone. Players then pass their remaining hand of cards to an opposing player to start the process over again. Points are scored based upon the type and quantity of neutrally-balanced compounds players are able to construct, and upon sets of noble gases they are able to collect.
