On the night before the first of May, all the witches meet for their yearly dance around Moon Hill. Your goal is to have all you witches complete their dance by moving once around the mountain. Unfortunately, all the witches are wearing black hats and cloaks, so some of the time you don't even know whose witch you are moving. The witches move forward, the witches move back, but moving in either direction can be to your advantage. As more witches join the dance, it becomes more and more difficult to tell them apart. Pretty soon, it's a complete frenzy. It's also a heck of a lot of fun!
Hexentanz is really a great game:
1) Easy to learn & teach.
2) Kids & adults love it.
3) It's soooo much fun!
Essentially you need mind boggling memory to remember which witches are yours while at the same time doing everything possible to confuse your opponents and make them forget which witches are theirs!
Better still, takes great skill to actually convince your opponent to bring home what they think is their witch, but is actually yours!
We especially love this- tell your opponents which is/isnt their witch and after a while, they will begin to believe it! Works everytime! Problem is, they do the same thing to you too!
I played the German version of this game in Germany when we were getting ready to go out, and it was fantastic. It was such a lauch we were all ready to go out as soon as we'd finished. It's well worth buying. As soon as I got back to England I searched for it on the net as it's so different to any other game, and I wanted it for when I went to Uni.
A great ice-breaker for getting to know people you don't know.
