Potion Panic: Concoction Crafting for the Chaotically Inclined is an easy-to-learn, recipe-building card game in which 2-4 players use advanced alchemical aptitude to create curious concoctions such as Hotchie Matcha, Bananarama, or even some Love Potion No. 8-1/2.
In Potion Panic, players will prep, smash, and brew various potions to create over 40 unique recipes in order to be the first player to synthesize the all-powerful Philosopher's Stone and win!
It's an all-out-brawl as players race to become the best concoction-crafter and earn the "hoity toity" title of Alchemist a la Mode*!

Accessibility, specifically making a game accessible to players with color-blindness was something I wanted to address very early on in the creation of Potion Panic and has been a very integral part of the development process throughout.
Each type of potion used in brewing has a specific shape, name, and color that matches a symbol on the Recipe cards. Hopefully this solution makes the game available to a much broader audience of players.
