Pros: Super easy setup, anyone can play (as long as they don't try to eat the pieces), beautiful board and fast play
Cons: Other than wishing for higher quality pieces (plastic or better as an option) none.
With my competitive 8 year old and my "loves games" 5 year old, I was looking for something that they could play together without anyone having a meltdown. I spent days at GenCon 2015 trying different games to take home for my kids. And strangely enough, I never had the chance to sit and play this as the booth was always busy. So after grabbing some information on the last day with my kiddos in tow, vowed to learn about this game. By random chance, I won a copy of this game. And honestly, I was going to buy it anyway from Amazon after reading about it.
So on to the game. It's quite simple really. Everyone is working together to stop the wizard. And to do so, the group needs to make a potion with ingredients that are randomly chosen at the beginning. The group then plays to identify and move the correct ingredients into the cauldron to make the potion. Meanwhile, the wizard tries to stop the group from succeeding by blocking their paths. Simple, easy and lots of fun. Now my kids are working on naming each potion combination. I can't get them to stop. I fear my pieces will wear out before next year. But the best part about the game, nobody cries, screams, or blows up because someone else won. We all win or we all lose. Great team building for young children.
The way it works is that there are a certain number of pieces with hidden ingredients that are along paths to a cauldron, and there's a wizard hat that blocks those paths. These pieces are the ones that move. You are trying to get the right ingredients into the cauldron before the wizard blocks all the paths. To do this, you roll two dice to determine which ingredient you can move, or if you look at the hidden ingredients, move the wizard, or block a path. The strategy is in deciding which ingredients to move and look at, and there's a memory component in remembering which ingredient is where.
It's very simple for adults and older kids, but a group of smaller children would probably love it. It's a bit similar to Trouble.
We've not won yet, and the game seems somewhat difficult without the aid of the adults pointing out which strategy should be prioritized at any particular time. I view this, however, as a learning experience and helpful aid for transitioning into older-child or adult games, where priorities are constantly shifting. I recommend this as a good family experience for 5+ kids with parents playing. It's quite engaging and we parents find that we're having fun with it too.
The premise is fairly simple for the adults, but a reasonable challenge for most 6 and 4 year olds. The adults will probably get the most enjoyment out of helping the kids. My guess is that in a few years we'll sell this one for more of a challenge, but for now it is a regular favorite.
The pieces are excellent quality, the rules are clear, and the game mechanics are solid. It takes about 15-20 minutes to play, which is perfect for young attention spans. The game quality really shines if you use it as a teaching tool for decision making. Adults: refrain from taking charge! Guide the kids in making good, considered decisions! Let them make mistakes and help them learn from them. And have fun!
Overview (very basic): You have a cauldron in the middle of the board that you need to get three specific ingredients in before the wizard stops you. You get your ingredients in by rolling different things and moving the potions along the board. The wizard tries to stop you by blocking your paths. Whether you move or the wizard does... is determined by the roll of your dice.
My sons are 4.5 and 7 and can both play this easily...but my 4.5 year old is the one who loves the game.
