Wondering if any of you have played this game?
Any real alchemy in it?
Any gems?

Looks like it is at least based in some real alchemy, from a historical perspective.

I have not. Wondering if anyone has and what they thought.

Never heard of it, but it looks fun, and maybe inspiring.

I haven’t played a video game in two or three years though.

But hey, it’s all a game right?

yeah it's all a game. it's all a dance. a mighty full-bodied enterprise.

but this here is a board game, not a video game.
It looks like it was only in Prototype mode at the time the second picture was taken.
But it is also available online -

Link to Ebay to buy game (at least 1 copy)

I think it has more potential to have some alchemical depth because it was a board game. Not sure why, just felt like that.

I agree. it would have a more scroll, tome, dusty pages kind of feel with tangible cards and the likes in hand.

Haha my mistake. I don’t play a lot of board games, so I assumed it was digital.

But besides that, any game with an alchemical reference is becoming more and more rare from what I’ve seen.
