How to Play:
Explain to the players that you have discovered a secret porridge recipe from a witch. Anyone who eats some of the porridge is immedieatly under her spell. The only way to break the spell is by guessing what all the ingredients in the porridge are without seeing them. The players are then enlisted to help guess all the ingredients. Each team must first choose a scribe who will write down the "recipe" (ingredients as guessed).

All other players are then blindfolded. Each player then takes a body part from the cauldron. They have to guess which body part they are holding and the scribe begins to write the recipe.

The team that guesses the most ingredients correctly wins the game.
