About this deal

When you have to put Ingredient marbles into the Dispenser, you have to follow a couple little rules: The marble must be completely visible. When you take ingredients, try to trigger an explosion to gain the most ingredients possible (more on this below). So, if against all odds, you manage to brew 6potions with the same power,you still only get 1 Skill token.

Potion Explosion App Review | Common Sense Media Potion Explosion App Review | Common Sense Media

Candy Crush is a phenomenally popular app, and Potion Explosion is the board game that attempts to re-implement it’s addictive nature. In the box you will find 80 marbles and a punch board marble dispenser that you have to build along with a huge number of potions. Chaining; The biggest impact in this game comes from chains of connections. Getting one marble is not that useful, but getting the two that then touch to be removed as well is good. Going for the one after that is exceptional and often more than you can use, however this can be a masterful stroke late game! You’ll use these marbles to complete potions of which you can have two at a time. Any completed potions flip over and then offer you a one use power. If you have any marbles left you can store up to three of them for a future turn. Also at any point on your turn you may take a -2 token to take any marble you like, but your will not receive any bonus marbles for explosions caused by this marble. If two marbles (or groups of marbles) of the same colour collide when falling to close the gap in a column left by taking a marble, they explode and are also taken by the player. I first spotted Potion Explosion at Gen Con in August and immediately thought it looked like a great family board game.When you exchange an ingredient with the Ghastly Cauldron, you must take a marble from it (Ghost Ectoplasm if possible) and put another marble in its place. After that, gain 1 reward token. After all, having fun is why we get together with friends and family to play games. And kids love playing with toys because they’re fun. Antiqua Thriftymind: If your pool is full at the end of your turn, exchange an ingredient in it with the Ghastly Cauldron. Each player places their 2 starter Potion tiles, with their Recipe side up, on the two Bunsen burners of their Desk. This will be their Brewing area. First, you must place any Ingredients in your hand on the matching empty holes of the same color on any Potion tiles brewing on your Desk, if possible (a yellow marble goes on a yellow hole, etc).. Once an Ingredient has been placed on a Potion tile, it cannot be moved until the Potion is complete.

Potion Explosion: The Fifth Ingredient | Board Game

Discover The Fifth Ingredient expansion: new rules and even more challenges with the arrival of Professors, new Potions and the new Ghost Ectoplasm ingredient. Available from the game shop! At the very end of the turn, you must draw new potions to replace any that you completed (You cannot add marbles to these new potions until next turn). In Potion Explosion, players try to get the most points by completing potions. And they complete potions by collecting the required ingredients (colored marbles) from the dispenser. Players can also earn bonuses by completing certain sets of potions. The marble dispenser in Potion Explosion is a big Toy Factor in the game. If there is available space in your pool you must fill it with marbles from your hand before ending your turn.But, remember that using your potions will help you greatly throughout the game. Each potion will have special abilities and specific effects. If a player completes at least 3 of one type of potion, the player collects one of the +4 point skill tokens. In Potion Explosion™ 2 to 4 players are students attending the final exams of the Potions class! They need to complete their potions using the marbles they collect, drink them to unleash their magical power and ultimately win the Student of the Year award! Dragon smoke (red) – the toxic fumes exhaled by these dreadful reptiles are often used for their high magical reactivity. Beware – never, ever inhale them! When all the holes of a potion are filled, that potion is completed and it moves to your potion area, becoming worth its VP at the end of the game.

Then, sort the potion tiles by type. They will have matching symbols. Remove two types from the game, either randomly or by choice. Albedus Humblescore: You can discard 2 ingredients of the same colour from your hand to discard a little help token. One flaw of this game, in my opinion, is that it really needs a few reference cards for the potions instead of making players pass around the rulebook throughout the game, but I digress. If, after removing all of the exploding Ingredients, there is another collision between marbles of the same color, this new collision will trigger another Explosion, and you also take all of those exploding Ingredients. But, if you have particularly slow or overthinking players at the table, or if you feel confident enough with the basics of the game, feel free to agree on a different number at the beginning of flay, if you'd like to have shorter or longer games!


So when we see a game with a big toy factor to it, we naturally tend to think it’s going to be fun. The game comes with a set of marbles and a plastic dispenser. Players collect these marbles (which represent needed ingredients) to brew potions, gain points and earn skill tokens.

The only catch is that when taking marbles using the special ability of a potion, the player doesn’t collect extra ingredients from any explosions caused. Brew of Feather Touch: Take 2 or more ingredients of the same colour from the same row of the dispenser. No explosions are triggered. Unicorn tears (blue) – the purest fluid known in the world of magic. Just a few drops can catalyze very powerful magical effects. At the end of your turn, you may collect another potion if you have an open slot in your brewing area. This will be the last thing you do on your turn. Then all the potions tiles are shuffled and placed into 5 piles with the recipe side up. 5 options to choose from when selecting my next potion.

Game Play

At it’s heart, the game is a set-collection type of game. And people of all ages love set collecting games. From the remaining pile, take two starter potion tiles out for each player and set them in the middle of the table. If you have Ingredient marbles in hand that you cannot place on any Potion tile in your Brewing area, you must place those Ingredients in the small retort flask on your Desk. This is called your Ingredient Pool. During your turn, you may freely move Ingredients between your Pool and your hand.
