  1. I'm a bit late here, but thanks for explaining the rules 😉 The game looks interesting to play and I heard about it previously. Thanks to your video i'm going to buy it !

  2. Hey Rodney, just a rules question so say your ingredient pool is full and you have 3 or more left over marbles in your hand at the end of your turn, can you swap some of those marbles with the ones already in the pool or because the pool is full you must throw those left overs into the dispenser?

  3. ​ @Watch It Played: Hey Rodney awesome video. I must have missed it but did you explain what happens to the extra marbles that do not fit into the flask? I tried to rewind the video but can't seem to find it.

  4. Can you pick from adjacent colors to create an explosion? For Example: If there are 3 yellow marbles in a row And you pick the middle one, do the remaining yellow marbles create an explosion?

  5. This is a really good game. I played your clip in the background as I made up the very cool dispenser box. By the time I'd made the box I had the gist of the game from your fabulous instructions. I enjoyed the construction too. I am going to take the rules in and colour photocopy the potion definitions so everyone gets one as we didn't use the potions as much as we could have due to just not remembering what they did. It's good you get back up marbles because we did klutz a few onto the floor. I thought the 'junior version' modification that someone suggested below was a good idea too. (First to five potions) I will use that when little people come around because they will love it. Your instructions are great but I think you don't convey the fun element very well. A few people have commented it looks complex and they don't see the fun. It has a high fun quotient.

  6. I had a question, if you do your regular pick that causes an explosion are matching colored marbles taken out only from the vertical column? Or does the explosion happen and any matching colors touching it from the column and row count?

  7. I saw this game at the fair when it was barely launched. Bought it immediately and it soon became one of the favorite of my elder son. Components are great, and the game is quite easy to be understood.
    Btw: as house rule we encourage to trigger as many potions and combination one wants to each round, replacing complete potions with new ones immediately. This makes the game funnier for us.

  8. Is there a sequence to the game like do you ALWAYS have to do your regular pick first? Or can you drink a potion then do your regular pick?

  9. Hello Rodney! As always great how to. I have one misunderstanding which popped into my mind once I re-read the rules twice. In the actual rulebook I didn't see that once you complete 3 potions of the same kind that you can't use potions from that to contribute towards the 5-different potions diploma. So I don't know if I am just blind or misunderstood the rules :/

    Thanks in advance for clearing this up if you read this <3

  10. Got the iOS version of this game. It's fantastic. Hope to get the real deal soon. Such a unique game!
