Brief Play Description: 

Number of Player: 2 – 6
Approx. Playtime – 60 minutes
• 1 Board
• 36 Ingredient Cards
• 36 Crest Cards
• 6 Playing Pieces
• 1 Dice

The players are alchemists, searching for the Ouroboros’ secret to eternal life: the Elixer of Life. To make this, you need acquire the 6 crests of Knowledge, Life, Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. Each crest requires 3 ingredients which you must search for to create the crest. The first player to land on an alchemy space with all 6 crests wins. The board indicates what ingredients are needed to trade in.

Shuffle the ingredient cards and place them in the center of the board. Put the crest cards to the side of the board. Have the player roll to see who goes first. In reverse order, the players place their piece on an alchemy space not already occupied as their starting point.

During Your Turn:
Roll the dice and move that number of spaces. Then depending on what space you land on,
do the following:
• Alchemy Space – Draw 2 cards from ingredient deck, or trade 3 of your ingredient cards
for a crest card. You can also trade one ingredient card with any other player on an
alchemy space.
• Gather Space – Draw a card from the ingredient deck.
• Reuse Space – Take an ingredient in the discard pile and put it in your hand.
• Thief – Take an ingredient card from the player with the most crests. If there is a
tie, the player chooses.
