Apotheca: The Secret Potion Society
Apotheca will be the next Knapsack game, on Kickstarter in May 2015. It’s a deceptively simple strategy game for 2 to 4 players. In Apotheca, you play a potion master, combining magical powers with secret tactics to outsmart your opponents. The goal is to match three potions of the same color in a row. The first to make three matches wins.
What makes the game special is what happens when you throw hidden information cards into the mix that only one player knows the color of. Players trap each other with clever spatial moves, bluffing and misdirection. Apotheca has playtested well for a long time, we’ve just been working out remaining kinks, streamlining the mechanics, and making sure the content is balanced. We also have great character and environment illustrations in development.
