header_imageAviary Games was showing off two games at PAX East this year, Alchemy and Interregnum. Interregnum will be coming to Kickstarter soon so I really just focused on the former.

Alchemy is a game where players are young alchemist apprentices trying to master the craft. Everyone is competing against the others to craft potions while fudging other players’ crafting. The trick here is that each potion can only be crafted once. You need to see what everyone around you is doing so as not to get too far in only to have another player complete a specific potion before you.
