Description

Cauldron Quest is fabulous fun cooperative game for older children.  It is a little more complex than the games designed for younger children as it has a few elements to it.

The idea behind the game, like all cooperative games, is the players work together break the wizards spell that will destroy the kingdom by finding the hidden ingredients and getting them to the cauldron.

Some of the elements of this game that make it so special and appealing for this age group are:

  • each game is different because players randomly select 4 ingredients (from the 6 options)
  • you won’t know which ingredient is where until you have an opportunity to “reveal” which ingredient is on the bottom of the potion bottles
  • the wizard always moves in a clockwise direction around the board and could “block” a potion  bottle with the needed ingredient getting to the cauldron
  • players roll the 2 action (picture) dice which determines what a player can do on that turn
  • there are 3 magic dice which give options of casting a spell or swapping potion bottles to keep the game alive

At first glance this game seems way to complicated but it really isn’t once you get the hang of it. And, it is so worth it.  We’ve played this several times at Starfish with our more capable children at the end of tutoring sessions.  Our staff have played it a few times too.  We ALL love it.  In fact we all love that it is a little more challenging than many other cooperative games.

Players will need to consider chance when making a decision on their turn and strategise which option to take, and which direction to move.  They will need to strategise and use their visual planning skills to ensure each of the potions are in the most favourable position on their turn.  Players can help each other, coming up with suggestions and work collaboratively.  If one wins, they all win.  If one loses they all lose!

Cauldron Quest is recommended for 6yrs+ for 2-4 players and takes about 15-20 minutes  (depending on how many players)

Peaceable Kingdom are the masters of Cooperative Games.  They build confidence, encourage inclusion, and increase positive interactions & social skills.  They help children develop valuable life skills.

What we love about Cauldron Quest

  • We LOVE LOVE LOVE all the elements that go into this game, making it just a little challenging and ensuring it is different each time it is played
  • The multiple dice makes sure there is an element of chance, which players will need to consider
  • Children really like making up the potions, breaking spells and keeping out of the wizards path.  It really is lots of fun.
