Who's hot tonight? Strindberg's hot tonight!

In my purse, I just found M and L tiles from the board game Upwords. It put me in mind of the following Strindberg and Helium cartoon:

But M and L are not in the periodic table! What can it mean?

Also, it goes without saying, there should totally be a board game based on the periodic table of the elements. The obvious thing would be to play Boggle using the PTE as your tableau. You could use one or (if more than one) both letters as your, you know, tile. Like I could make "tint" using titanium, niobium, and tantalum.

But I think the PTE can support its own board game. Maybe this will be a summer project.
