Foxmind Games has announced The Potion, a light fast bluffing and bidding game from designer Kaspar Lapp (Magic Maze) about alchemists creating the coveted potion. In The Potion, 3-7 players each start with 2 beetles, 2 mushrooms and 2 vials. Each turn, players roll custom dice, which show symbols for the three ingredients on each face. After considering the dice, players secretly select an ingredient type from their stash. The players then reveal their “bid”, and if the total number of one ingredient held by all players equals the number and type of symbols on one of the dice, involved players can discard that ingredient into the potion bottle. If a player picked an ingredient that does not appear on any dice, and no players were able to discard as above, then they are allowed to discard their ingredient. Finally, if all players qualify to discard ingredients into the bottle, then no players may discard into the bottle. The winner is the first player to be left with only one ingredient type in hand. Expect this fast microgame to release at Essen Spiel 2018, October 25-28.

FoxMind Toys and Games would like to announce their partnership with Mandoo Games to publish the North American version of Slide Blast, a fun and fast-paced family strategy tile laying game with easy rules and great components.

“In Slide Blast, by cleverly choosing and placing tiles, players try to build the longest slide, allowing them to engage in high-speed straightaways, gut-wrenching curves and mind blowing tunnels!  Players also gain extra points each time they make another player slide.”

Slide Blast is a game for 2-6 players, ages 7 and up, and plays in about 30 minutes.  It is expected to be released in the 2nd quarter of 2017.

The game will be showcased at the upcoming 2017 Toy Fairs in Nuremberg and New York.  For more information on this announcement, visit the publisher’s site here.
