Here’s The Deal with Alchemsits, an involved game of logical deduction and pseudo-academic fakery. If you want to know more about the rules of the game, watch my How to Play Alchemists video.
Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is Alchemists, a worker placement, logical deduction game for 2-4 players. Here’s the deal.
In Alchemists, you and your friends play academic wizards trying to determine the secret building blocks of various potion ingredients, and then publishing theories on your research for money and fame. You’ll experiment by combining ingredients in your cauldron and then, using a free app, discover which potion you’ve made by drinking it yourself, or feeding it to a hapless intern. Tracking your results plays out like a logic puzzle. Once you think you know the molecule that underlies an ingredient, you can publish a theory on it. As in real life, you don’t necessarily have to be right. And if you go on a hunch, your opponents might successfully debunk your theory!
Well, does it sound interesting?
