|You wouldn't expect a game this light to fit the Alea "big box" games that are often much more strategically deep (think Puerto Rico or Princes of Florence). Nevertheless the theme of Witch's Brew's magic and potions is enjoyable and draws kids in. The wooden potion-ingredients components are pretty nice though I robbed the gold pieces from my Citadels game since the cardboard gold tokens that come with this are a little thin.
Other than that this is an easy hidden role game that plays like a trick-taking card game with a twist. If you grab the Alea "Treasure Chest" expansion collection you get some nice add-ons for this game with crow counters (handy), cards for a 6th player (nice!) and some fun new magic powers cards (that add a little to length of play but have fun variety that influence what secret roles you will take) and amulets (that let you steal back a role stolen from you once or twice in the game).
|This is such a fun game! There is so much tension when you have to choose - take over the role or say "So be it!" to get the lesser reward. This is such an interactive game and with enough randomness to play well with any group. It is one of my favorites!
