In Potion Explosion, 2 to 4 players brew potions by pulling colored marbles from a dispenser and matching them with the needed ingredients for the potions on the table in front of them. While basic turns are simple, clever players will strategically pull colored marbles that both fulfill a needed ingredient and cause matching colored marbles to stack up in a single column. When two or more of the same ingredients match, an Explosion occurs, letting players collect the like colored marbles and save them for later turns.
Fans of popular mobile matching games will instantly recognize the core mechanic of Potion Explosion and appreciate the extra layers of strategy introduced when playing against other students of Horribilorum. As you brew potions by filling in missing ingredients with marbles, you score points. But that’s not all! Each potion has a special ability that can be used once to help yourself or hinder other players, so choose which ones you drink wisely!
