Broom Service is a card based board game based off of the game Witch’s Brew that combines luck and skill with bluffing ones opponent.
The goal of the game is to deliver potions in a magical world by choosing four out of ten cards each round. Each card has an action (Cowardly or Brave) with Cowardly giving less reward than Brave. The player gambles by choosing one action over the other as one is less reward with instant action and the other more reward with a possible no action. Through these actions the player is delivering potions which upon doing so rewards the player with points. The player with the most points at the end wins the game.

Pro Combines risk/reward with strategy
There are two roles for the cards a player will play, Cowardly and Brave. Each turn there can be only one player that gets to be Brave so everyone must try to strategically guess what everyone else will do in order to decide if it is worth the risk of playing the Brave card for more rewards over safely playing a Cowardly card and getting less in that outcome.
Pro Solid components that are designed well
The design of the cards and board are colorful and pleasant and the quality of the cardboard used and wooden pieces feel solid like they will last for years. Overall a nice game to look at and use.
Pro Rules that allow for 2 player
Unlike original Witches Brew game Broom service has an optional 2 player ruleset for those times when there are not enough people for the normal ruleset to be used.
Con Game board is busy
The board design while colorful is a bit busy in that it may be confusing what some parts of the board are for as specific colors and shapes are important to the gameplay and getting lost in the design can be a detriment to play.
