Alchemists

Alchemists is a great game of deduction, worker placement, and insight. You are an alchemist trying to discover the alchemical formula for the ingredients you need to make potions. You can do this by collecting ingredients, selling potions, buying potions, soliciting help from friendly townspeople, buying artifacts to help you in your deductions, by mixing up ingredients to see what they make and testing theories on your assistant and on yourself. If you’re lucky, you can publish your theories for fame and fortune. If you’re smart, you can debunk others shoddy work on their theories. When all is said and done, you can show off your handiwork to the townspeople for even more fame.

Will you be the best alchemist in town? Only you can tell.

This great game from CGE (Czech Games Edition of Dungeon Lords, Dungeon Petz and Galaxy Truckers) is a great addition to their line of games. Though there is a bit of a learning curve as you figure out how to best deduce the alchemical formulas in the game, you will be rewarded with great satisfaction as you master the game play and defeat the other wizards in the game.

I highly recommend this game. It’s quite different from other offerings out there and I found it to be a refreshing change from the average game fare.
