Die kleinen Zauberlehrlinge ("The Little Magician's Apprentices") is a new release from Drei Magier Spiele in the spirit of Nacht der Magier and the 2009 Kinderspiel des Jahres winner Das magische Labyrinth.
Each of the players is a magician's apprentice who needs to place various ingredients in the proper cauldron. On a turn, the player places one ingredient on top of her playing piece – in the "bowl" the piece is carrying – then pushes this piece across the board with her magic wand to the cauldron. When the piece nears the cauldron, a magnet under the board tips the piece forward and if the player is positioned correctly, the ingredient will land in the cauldron. If it doesn't, the player reclaims the ingredient for a later attempt. In either case, that player's turn is over.
Once a player has dispatched all her ingredients, all other players can cart two ingredients at a time while this player aims to start the fire under the cauldrons by delivering a fireball to a central fireplace. The first player to light the fire wins the game.
The tricky part of the game comes from the magnets as some additional magnets are randomly placed under the game board – you shake the board a few times before starting to play – and encountering one of those magnets unexpectedly could make you toss an ingredient early. Watch that wand carefully, little wizard!
