Each round everyone brews their medicine at the same time. You draw Ingredient tokens from your bag and place them on the spiral track on your pot. The higher the value, the further it is placed along the spiral and the more the potion is worth. Each ingredient behaves differently (being able to draw more chips, removing dangerous ingredients), depending on where it is placed and what else is in the pot.
You keep doing this as much as you want, but if you pull three of the white Cherry Bombs from the bag you have to stop as your pot has exploded. Once everyone has decided to stop adding ingredients (or have exploded their brew) you work out who has scored the most. This leads to a range of activities that add new ingredients to your bag, lets you buy chosen ingredients or move your start point forward for the next round.
The result is game where the theme is matched cleverly by the mechanics. You start with a small bag of Ingredients tokens, but round-by-round can gain a cunning collect of tokens. Things start simple but steadily ramp up with fuller bags and new ingredients unlocked for everyone.
Play Time: This game will take between 45 minutes and 1 hour to complete.

Content RatingWe rate this suitable for 3+ years-olds.
The game is about brewing magic potions with horrific ingredients including worms, mandrake, spiders, moths and ghosts but this is kept light hearted and the focus isn't heavy on the magical.
