After discovering that we can easily play Karuba with our 5 year old (with some rule tweaks for her), I'm looking for another family game that may be playable for her, even if the suggested age is higher.

Potion Explosion might fit this category and the marbles as well as the puzzly aspect promise to be great fun. Has anyone played this with kids younger than 8? How did it go? Did you use any rule tweaks?

I've played it with my 5 year old a few times. The first game I played without the special potion abilities so he could get the game flow down. However, that probably wasn't necessary. He remembers the abilities better than the adults I've played it with multiple times. He says it's his favorite game.

Great, just what I wanted to hear! I think I'm gonna buy this as a surprise to take with us on our vacation next month. Hope I manage to keep it unopened until then shake.

I played this game with my three kids who are 10, 8, and 7 years old and they have no problems following the rules and remembering the special abilities of each potion. It's been a lot of fun for us. Try it with your kids!

My 6 year old can play without the special abilities just fine - he loves it.

I'd say just give it a go!
