Wettstreit im Hexenwald


Whoever among the witches in the Magic Wood will brew the most powerful potion will be the new Head Witch! Players assist the witches and search for potion ingredients with the help of their imps and deliver those ingredients for Training points and bonuses to the witches and the next Head Witch. On each of the 15 spots on the board you find exactly one ingredient; identical spots deliver identical ingredients, but with varying frequency which is marked by symbols. Movement between those spots is free, there are no paths, but it takes different amounts of time to travel between spots, that is, it is your turn irregularly depending on your destination. In your turn you can travel, question witches on the spot with you or send imps to spots without imps or deliver ingredients or brew your own potion for a special ability. Your potions are in effect instantly or over a span of several turns. You mark them on the potion card and use them to chase away a witch, calling imps with ingredients, higher speed, faster discovery of ingredients, more carrying capability or training points. When you are on a spot together with a witch you can question here, she flies away afterwards. When five kinds of ingredients have been delivered to a witch you win with most training points, if you did deliver ingredients to the evil witch you lose points.

The tiptoi pen allocates ingredients, moves the witches, answers questions and administrates deliveries and training points. Wettstreit im Hexenwald offers a thrilling game, including a bit of tactic and lots of fun, ideally supported by the tiptoi pen acting as game master.
