Witches Brew

"The Weirding Sisters congregate. Their brew is known to educate the pilgrims coming to partake. A lucky few will learn their fate; for the rest, trouble awaits." Witches Brew is a crowd-based game. Players use their smartphones to interact with a single public screen on which the Weirding Sisters continually add ingredients to their magical cauldron. Players choose when to drink from the cauldron and score points based on how many of their favored ingredients have been added up to that point. The longer you wait, the more you can score... but if you wait too long, the mixture in the cauldron may become unstable and explode, inflicting GRAVE MISFORTUNE. At the end of five rounds, the player with the highest score will have their FATE REVEALED...
