Subject: Does my turn end as long as I finish two potions? rss

1)I face often, a situation where I complete TWO potions even before I 'pick an ingredient'. Once that happens, I draw two new potions. Can I pick an ingredient then?

2) I cause an explosion and Complete two potions. I place three leftover ingredients from my hand to place in my reserve pool.

A)Must I return any balance ingredients in my hand or may I continue to place them in the newly drawn potions?

B)If not, may I STILL drink potions and use professor's help to collect and place ingredients?

Generally, I feel the game becomes less interesting if I am limited to only finishing 2 potions per turn especially in the last few rounds.


Thanks for your response!!!

Drawing potion is the last thing of the turn, so no you can't.

When you complete your p otions but you still haven't pick up an ingredient you can do it to put these ingredients in your reserve, up to three, and discard the others in your hands.

Then you can draw two New potions. This balances the game i guess.

Your turn only consists of choosing & placing ingredient marbles, drinking potions and getting help from the Professor. Potions are crafted as soon as they're filled.

Once you've filled your two potions and placed all the marbles you can in your hand into your pool, the end turn starts, which consists of:

Dropping your remaining marbles in-hand into the dispenser
Refilling potions on your table

You can't move the marbles in the pool to the new potions until your next turn, and you can't drink any more potions or ask for help as technically your turn is over.

It's still pretty thinky--strategizing which of the 5 potions you want to go after on the board once you need to fill your spots, and what explosions may be available to you so you can help choose
