Particle-Physics Manager is a single-player turn-based game, where the player makes decisions each turn to determine the activities at their laboratory. It is designed so that it may be played and enjoyed without having any previous knowledge of particle physics. However anyone playing will gain familiarity with the basic terminology and concepts, and improved understanding will generally lead to a higher score.

The main area of control for the player is in managing the research programme and personnel. He or she coordinates the activities of Professors (project leaders), Research Associates (specialists in a given area) and Students (with developing skills), divided between theory group, experiment group and technical group.
