Why It's On The List
  • Clever game of reading the minds of the other players - with some nifty gamer-y elements to the card play.
Tips & Tricks:
    • It's best with 4-5 players... the expansion for 6 players (found in the Treasure Chest from Rio Grande) is functional but not as much fun.
    • The easiest rule to forget is the ability to buy vials when you brew a potion - there's an entire strategy based on collecting vials that can work.
    • I've never written anything substantial about Witch's Brew... except to say that I thought it should have been the Golden Geek Card Game of the Year instead of Dominion back in 2009.
