About the game:
In The Quacks of Quedlinburg, players are charlatans — or quack doctors — each making their own secret brew by adding ingredients one at a time. Take care with what you add, though, for a pinch too much of this or that will spoil the whole mixture!
Each player has their own bag of ingredient chips. During each round, they simultaneously draw chips and add them to their pot. The higher the face value of the drawn chip, the further it is placed in the swirling pattern. Push your luck as far as you can, but if you add too many cherry bombs, your pot explodes!
At the end of each round, players gain victory points and coins to spend on new ingredients to add to their bags, depending on the strength of the ingredients in their pots. But players with exploded pots must choose points or coins — not both! The player with the most victory points at the end of nine rounds wins the game.
The Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Herb Witches expands the town of Quedlinburg with four new sets of items:
The Witches - new characters with special abilities that players may use once per game
Locoweed - a new ingredient whose value is determined by its ability rather than being fixed
New ingredient books for each existing ingredient type, increasing variety even further
Player components in black color - increasing the number of players to 5

New special tiles, contained in "Deutscher Spielepreis 2018 Goodie Box", that add extra scoring conditions that players can work towards throughout the game.
This mini-expansion can only be played when using the front sides of the cauldrons, as it uses the extra droplet from each player.
Choose whether to use the brown side or green side of the test tube stand. Assemble the test tube stand (consisting of 2 parts) and place it in the middle of the table with the chosen side facing up. Place an unused droplet of each player's color on the leftmost test tube ("15" for the brown side, "12" for the green side).
Whenever you get the opportunity to move your droplet forward in the course of the game, you may either move your droplet in your cauldron as normal or you may move your droplet on the test tube stand one test tube to the right.
Brown side: At the end of the game, all players empty their bags and add up the values of all of their chips in their bag and cauldron (white chips included). Each player divides their total value by the value of the test tube their droplet is at on the test tube stand, and this number is added as VP to their final score. For example, if the chips in your bag and cauldron add up to 60, you would gain 4 VP if your droplet is at "15" (60 divided by 15), but if you managed to get your droplet all the way to "2" you would gain 30 VP (60 divided by 2)!
Green side: During the course of the game, players may buy VP with their shopping coins in addition to buying ingredients. The price for each VP for a player is determined by the value of the test tube their droplet is at on the test tube stand. Players may purchase as many VP each round as they want and can afford.
