In Alchemist Academy you play a young and gifted student at Eggelstein Hall known better to the students as Alchemist Academy, a school for the magically gifted. Your grades have slipped. With only a few weeks to go you need to raise your grades and fast! There is only one solution..... if you can't pass....CAST!
Alchemist Academy is a fast, light-hearted card game for 2 to 6 players and is played in 30 to 60 minutes. Alchemist Academy is a hand management card game relying on 2 decks of cards, a Spell Deck and Shop Deck.
Each class (round) players attempts to cast spells on each other and themselves to increase their grade (score). Each of these spells require the correct components in order to cast it. These components are drawn from the Shop Deck.
Some spells are quick and easy to cast and only require 1 or 2 common components to be cast, however these only give the caster a small bonus. Other spells require rare or unique items to be cast and while this might take longer to obtain the right components, the resulting spell is far more powerful.
If the spell is successfully cast, there will be some sort of effect and the player who cast the spell gains points.
