The black flame candle has been lit.
Now the Sanderson witches you must outwit;
Or with a wretched evil potion,
A foul spell they’ll set in motion,
Stun the witches and ruin the brew,
Before the sun can rise anew!
Work together to protect Salem’s children and stop the Sanderson sisters from completing their wicked potion before the sun rises!

How to play
In Disney Hocus Pocus: The Game, players cooperate to ruin the Sanderson Witches’ potion three times before the sun rises.
Players hold a hand of ingredients of different types and colors and attempt to get all the ingredients or colors in the cauldron to match. Each turn, players ask a question about other players’ hands, referring to the ingredient type or color (but not both).
For example, “Who has blue ingredients?” or “Who has newt saliva?”. They then play a card from their hand into the cauldron, then draw back up to three cards. Now it’s the next player’s turn.
Some ingredient cards have Binx or a spell book on them. When an Ingredient with Binx is played into the cauldron, the active player puts Binx in front of any player. That player then lays their cards down so everyone can see them and keeps them there until Binx is moved.
If a spell book is played, draw a card from the Spell deck and do what it says. Spells generally do something to ruin your plans.
Players also have four “Tricks” to use; each Trick can be used once per game. Choose from “Circle of Salt”, “Daylight Savings Time”, “Billy Butcherson”, or the “Burning Rain of Death”!
