Witch’s Brew is the English name for the card game known in its original German as Wie verhext! The game, which was a 2008 Spiel des Jahres nominee, is now available from retailers in the United States. Witch’s Brew challenges players to collect ingredients, brew potions, steal gold, and cast spells. It uses a role selection mechanic—but one in which the players have the ability to steal roles from each other. Publishers Rio Grande and Alea recommend Witch’s Brew for 3-5 players ages 9 and up. Playing time is approximately 45 minutes.
