About

THE STORY:

   Have you ever wanted to make someone fall in love with you; wanted to become stronger, fly, or even know the future? Now you can. In this world, you become a powerful potion maker. 

   That isn't enough though? You have to be the world’s greatest? Come and join others in a contest of skill and strategy and brew potions of power. Players pit themselves against each other crafting potions to find out who has what it takes to be the world’s greatest brewer of elixirs, droughts, and potions. In this game you use different ingredients to concoct potions.

   Ah, but there is a catch or two. You also will be competing with each other for ingredients, potions that you will make are randomly selected, and the board will change from round to round. 

   There are special items in the game to help make it easier to get the ingredients you need.

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE:

   Backers who receive a copy of the game will receive a Kickstarter exclusive card that will only be playable by the owner of the game. If the owner is not playing. The player who draws the card may play the card, otherwise the card must be given to the owner of the game.

STRETCH GOALS:

$35K

   Personas will be added as an optional addition to the game. Each persona will have an ability that they can use once per game to help them in their mad dash to win the title of Grand Brew Master.

$40K

   All Kickstarter backers that receive a game will receive a special bag with the Bubbling Brew Logo on it to hold the ingredient tokens. 

HOW TO PLAY:

   This will be a brief description of how to play the game.

  On the game board 25 random ingredients are placed on the board, this will give you a 5 x 5 grid. 

 Players draw three random tokens from the ingredient bag and three recipes from the recipe card stack. They may choose to keep one, two, or all three cards to start the game. Place the unwanted cards to the discard pile.

   Player's can on their turn play a recipe from their hand using a combination of ingredients on the board and their hand. Once a player completes a recipe; The freshly created potion is placed on the table in front of the player with the tokens that created it.  

   Any empty ingredient token spaces on the board are replaced with a random token(s) from the bag. The player may now keep or discard any unused tokens to the game board (not the bag). The other option during a player's turn is that they may instead of creating a potion to the table is they may draw three new recipe cards and must keep at least one or more of the cards. 

   The player may still discard any unwanted Ingredient tokens to the board. The tokens discarded to the board cover up ingredient tokens on the board. This may be a tactic to stop others from getting tokens they need or hide them to be used later, since you may only create one potion per turn. This is possible using other special tokens or abilities from completed potions. 

  The game ends when one player completes a number of potions determined by the number of players. i.e. After one player completes five potions in a four player game the other three players have one last chance to complete one more potion from their hand. After the last player has a chance to play their potion each player adds the totals from the potions they have completed and subtracts the recipe(s) not completed from their hand to determined who has the most points and becomes the most renowned potion brewer in the land.

Thank you

   I would like to thank you for checking out my Kickstarter. As a game designer, I would like to bring this game to market and see my dream come true. When starting this project I decided my first game should be fun for the whole family, something you could play with anyone; even if they are not a hard core gamer. I also wanted it to be on the inexpensive side of board games with great art and high quality materials. I think Bubbling Brew is exactly that. So I hope you back this project and get a fun, quality game in the process. Thank you.

   Look for my next game after this campaign, Search'n for Sasquatch. Players drive around the US, in an RV following sightings, and using specialized equipment, searching for evidence of the elusive Big Foot.

Risks and challenges

Risks, what can I say?
Production delays,
Shipping delays,
Customs delays,
These would be the only reasons that there would be delays in this project; as the game is 90% complete. The stretch goals would be the only addition to the game and we already have them planned. The cards would just need the art added and sent to the manufacture with the rest of the assets.
So the risks are small and typical but for those who would need some reassurance, The money would be refunded if for some unforeseen event occurred to cause this project not to be produced. i.e., The cauldron wouldn't boil or the Eye of Newt was missing.
