Score the most victory points by delivering potions via Broom Service throughout the magical realm.

This card-based game, a remake of the award-winning game Witch's Brew, combines luck and skill, and balances timely bluffing with clever hand management.

Broom Service is a simultaneous-selection (but then sequential play) card game. Players select 5 of their 12 role cards to play per set, then they reveal them in sequence. Each role has a main full action and a less valuable "favor" action. If you are the first player with that role you announce that you are that character. If you follow after but choose that same role card you can take the favor action instead, or declare that you are that character in hopes that you can command the full action. You risk having it taken from you by a later player, though. The different roles help players collect different ingredients and money to make potions listed on the cauldron cards. When everyone's five role cards have been played and actions taken, another five cards are chosen for the next set and the process repeats as before.

Broom Service is a revised and expanded version of Witch's Brew.

Includes:
-Tiles - 32 clouds, 24 magic wands, 15 amulets, and 17 landscape tiles
-Wooden pieces - 60 potion bottles, 10 pawns, 5 victory point markers
-Cards - 50 (5 x 10) roles cards, 10 events cards
-Instructions - 2 game summaries + a 12-page rules booklet
-Double-sided game board - For basic and advanced play

  • rating based on 1st play. Might be added to the collection, not a must have.
  • Unique mix of pick up & deliver and card play.
  • Truly an excellent game, that is deeper than it looks. Love the "cute" art style, and the engaging play. Underrated game IMHO. The card play and the decision to be brave or not, and how that factors into who goes first next round all make for a fantastic game of getting into the other players' heads.

Love Pfister's work – easily one of my favorite designers, if not my favorite. #Great Western Trail has been my #1 game for a long time, but have also enjoyed #Maracaibo, #Broom Service#Blackout: Hong Kong, #Mombasa, #Expedition to Newdale… needless to say, I'm very excited about this announcement! 🙂
