Why It's On The List
  • Bag-building and whimsy combined to produce an easy-to-teach press-your-luck game that has been 100% successful with everyone I've introduced it to.
Tips & Tricks:
  • You need to look at what powers are available - and remember that you can't do everything.
  • Not worrying about scoring for the first couple of rounds is sometimes worth it for the rat-tail catch-up mechanic.
  • I like both of the expansions... though they make the game a little trickier to teach and get into for new players. I'd recommend you wait on Herb Witches and/or Alchemists until everyone at the table has a game or two under their belts.
  • I have two nifty add-on things for my Quacks collection - the splendid GeekUp Bits tokens (seen in the picture) thanks to a very good friend (King Bob!)... and the Folded Space organizer.
  • This is the second of two games designed by Wolfgang Warsch on the countdown.
