Dear students, it's time for the final exams of the Potions class! The rules are always the same: Take an ingredient marble from the dispenser and watch the others fall. If you connect marbles of the same color, they explode and you can take them, too! Complete your potions using the marbles you collect, and drink them to unleash their magical power. Remember, though, that to win the Student of the Year award, being quick won't be enough: you'll also need to brew the most valuable potions in Potion Explosion! Players 2-4 Playing time 30-60 minutes Ages 8+

You take a coloured marble from the track and if the falling marbles touch another marble of it's colour then they explode and you take those marbles out of the track, this continues until two marbles of different colours touch.
You then take your marbles which become ingredients in a potion, once you place all your ingredients in the potion you get a fancy power and place the marbles back in the dispenser ready for the next player.
It's a great family game, that's easy to pick up and will support up to 4 players but works great with 2,3 or 4.
The components are ok the marbles feel a little light and sometimes taking a marble can cause others to bunch up, the dispenser is ok and should last a couple of years if the kids are rough handlers.
If you are unsure about this as a tabletop version try out the the app it's a great version of this that I think plays better, with nice swishy effects and automated score tracking and only a few quid. It's our go to game if we are out of the house.
However, this has been a game changer (pun very much intended), as I absolutely love it. The tactile element of the marbles is great fun, the artwork is charming and the game is easy to understand without being dull. We've played it with different groups of friends, both board game pros and novices, and everyone has really enjoyed it. Here's hoping it's a gateway game for me!

There are a few things I'd like to note
1) The cardboard game piece used to distribute the marbles can have issues, occasionally marbles get stuck in the back instead of sliding down the ramp, other times they wind up not in a straight line, not a big deal but can be annoying
2) The rules aren't always very clear. For instance if you have 5 Potions of different types and you get a Skill Token for it, can 1 of those Potions also count towards having 3 Potions of the same type? Alternatively, if you get a Skill Token for having 5 Potions of different types, can you get another Token if you collect 5 more potions of different types?
3) Potion Descriptions - In our games we always wind up passing around the instructions because folks have a hard time remembering what each potion does. It would be ideal if the game included 4 small reference cards that briefly described each potion type.
