Chaos & Alchemy by Clay Crucible Games is a fast-paced game of laboratory devices, exotic experiments and subtle rivalry between alchemists. Each player conducts an experiment each turn by rolling dice, hoping for each die to be at least as high as the shared Fortune Die.
Each success lets the alchemist draw a new card from the deck or play a card from hand. Each failure means a discard.
Players race to build up a laboratory sophisticated enough to turn lead into gold, with innovations totaling 10 or more points.
