I was lucky enough to be partnered with pinkleo for the Decked out for Deathly Hallows Part II swap back in May 2011.  I had so many ideas for this swap (I mean, it is HP, right??)  Anyway, she mentioned in her questionnaire that she would like a game.  So, I came up with a card game called Potions Master.



The idea is to collect ingredients to complete potion recipes.  The first one to complete their recipes wins.  There are also special spell cards so you can try and put up (and repel) various roadblocks for your opponents.






I basically looked on different HP websites for "common" potion ingredients to make up the ingredient cards.  Some spells were from HP and some I made up myself.  The potions were totally made up to, hopefully, be humorous Cheesy




I printed the cards double sided on heavy cardstock then laminated them.    The box was a metal tea box that I covered with bits of masking tape and then aged with shoe polish (a trick I learned as a girl scout) to give it a leather look.


If I had more time, I would probably have created more ingredients, but I think it works with what's there.  I would share all of the cards that I have for you to print, but I don't think I can upload the .doc file.

Here are Sample Cards:





Game instructions
Object of the game: To be the player with the most completed potions
Game Pieces:
-   12 Potion Cards      - 48 Ingredient Cards
-   9 Spell Cards      - 1 Dice
Game Play:
Shuffle the Ingredient Cards and the Spell Cards together.  Deal out 4 cards to each player.  Deal 4 Potion Cards to each player.  Players lay the Potion cards out in front of them face up.
Play starts to the right of the dealer.  On their turn, the player may do the following actions in the following order:
1.   The player may add ingredients from their hand to any one of their potions.  Do this by laying the ingredient cards face up with the potion card.  
2.   They player can then do one of the following actions:
-   Roll the die.  Draw the number of cards from the draw pile indicated
-   Cast a spell (see spell cards)
3.   At the end of their turn, the player must discard one card face down onto the discard pile
When the draw pile gets diminished, shuffle the discard pile and continue.  Once a potion has all 4 ingredients, flip those cards face down.  This potion is complete and the ingredients cannot be stolen. The first player to complete all 4 potions wins and is the Potions Master.  If the draw pile is depleted before this happens, the person with the most completed potions is the winner.
Casting Spells:
Spell cards are identified by the wizard:
Follow the directions on the spell card to put other players at a disadvantage.  The 2 defensive spells, Protego and Finite Incantatem, can be used to block an incoming spell.  All other spells must be used on the players turn.  Once a spell has been cast, put it in the discard pile.  The exceptions are the Dopplegangium spell (which allows a player to substitute one ingredient for another) and the Loctitium spell (which prevents another player from stealing an ingredient from a potion).  These spells must be kept with the in progress Potion until it is complete.
Game Variation: The potion cards can be shuffled in with the ingredient and spell cards.  Deal 5 cards to each player.  When a player gets a potion, lay it down in front of them to start adding ingredients.  The first person to find and complete 4 potions wins.

This looks like a great game.  I always have a hard time coming up with the rules for a game so that it is not too hard or too easy to play, and is fun too!  This looks like a quick fun game.  Great idea!  I also like the masking tape idea.
