Welcome to Quedlinburg, where the best miracle doctors and quack surgeons from all across the land gather to brew their concoctions against smelly feet, homesickness, hiccups and relationship woes.  Every quack has their own special brew they hope will make them the best miracle doctor in the land!

About the game

The Quacks of Quedlinburg is a strategic push-your-luck game where each player draws from their potpourri of ingredients until they think that their own special blend is right.  But be careful: a few too many special ingredients and the whole potion could blow up in your face!  Do you stop early to improve your chances of making a better potion later that will win the day, or do you risk a big setback in order to get more money and fame now?  Finding the right balance between risk and reward is key.

How to Play

Each player has their own bag of ingredient chips. During each round, they simultaneously draw chips from their bags and add them to their pots. The higher the face value of the drawn chip, the further it is placed in the pot's swirling pattern, increasing how much the potion will be worth. Push your luck as far as you can, but if you add too many cherry bombs, your pot will explode!

At the end of each round, players gain victory points and coins to spend on new ingredients, depending on how well they managed to fill up their pots. But players whose pots have exploded must choose points or coins — not both! The player with the most victory points at the end of nine rounds wins the game.
