Product Description

In Glastonbury, the players are witches and wizards who shop for ingredients for their magic potions. Your token moves around the perimeter of an array of ingredient cards, and you pick one from the row or column where you stop. The number on the card you pick dictates how many spaces you move on your next turn.

To score points, you need to collect sets of four matching ingredients; if you have only one of a particular ingredient, you'll score penalty points instead. The scoring rules can be made more complicated if the players desire, but for most the basic rules are satisfying. A touch of memory is involved since you can see only the most recently chosen ingredient on your stack of cards.

Glastonbury is a new edition of the 2002 release Kupferkessel Co. with the game now allowing for up to four players instead of being strictly a two-player game. The game includes additional ingredient cards and new spell cards that allow special actions.

Nice, quick game for 2
June 17, 2002

My husband and I are keen game players, and being only two of us most of the time are always on the look-out for good two-player games. This one's great fun - simple and quick to play but still with a lot of strategy. On each move you have to decide whether to go for your own targets or take a card your opponent wants to frustrate.

One thing I didn't quite understand in the Counter review was the idea of standing on a card. We have a German edition and it's clear in the instructions that the counters move clockwise round the edge of the grid, so you're always standing at the end of a row/column and choosing a card, not on the cards themselves. Maybe something is lost in the translation! The drawback is that you can end up in a situation where you can only move from corner to corner (thus garnering no cards) if you have a 4 card on top of your cauldron pile and are trapped behind your opponent, as the rules state you have to jump over him.

Overall, good fun and enough tactics to keep it interesting.

A bewitching little game
April 25, 2002

Kupferkessel Co. is a perfect little filler for two. It's quick to set up, takes five minutes or less to explain, has attractive art, and plays in 20 to 30 minutes. It's about 70% tactics, 20% luck, and 10% strategy. The rules are clear with the exception of the one sentence explaining the 'witch hat and wand' cards. (All they needed to say was that these cards give you a second turn.)

It's important to remember that you don't have to take the last game-ending card in a row into your 'charm boiler, you can choose to discard it instead. Failing to remember this has cost my wife a couple of games as she has often drawn a card that is the only one in a set, consequently giving her a negative score card in her boiler.

I would recommend playing 4 or 5 basic games before taking on the prescription cards. We also allow players to look at all the cards in their boiler (without changing the order) rather than just the top one. Turning it into a memory game adds to the luck factor in my opinion.

Overall, I highly recommend this game as one of the more enjoyable two player games I've played, up there with Hera and Zeus, Ceasar and Cleopatra, Starship Catan, and Castle.
