Amalgam
Game Description: 
Amalgam is both nicely strategic and extremely easy to learn.
 
In the center of the table there is a grid of six-by-six cards that are laid out face up. Corner cards make up each of the four corners, while the remaining cards come from the deck of ingredient and spell cards.
 
On your turn you move your pawn clockwise a certain number of spaces. If you land on a corner space, your turn ends; anywhere else, and you select a card from the row your pawn lands next to. If it is an ingredient card, you place it on top of your cauldron. Every ingredient card has a number ranging from one to four on it — on your turn, you always move the number of spaces shown on the top ingredient card on your cauldron. There are also spell cards, which will allow you to do things such as move past corners or peek at all the cards in your cauldron.
 
Players score points for having the most of each ingredient, plus bonus for cards of their own color and penalty points for only one copy of an ingredient.
