Players craft potions in a secret marketplace. Hide ingredients to deceive opponents and use magical powers to mix concoctions. But beware - your opponents are brewing schemes of their own! Apotheca is played on a 4x4 grid. Players gain points by making matches of three potions of the same color in a row. The first player to make three matches wins. It's easily learned, but the combination of asymmetric powers and secret facedown potions make the game a delicious challenge.
