A brilliant family game that can be played by young and old. Kids love it and there is enough to keep parents minds active too. Great wooden pieces too.

I don't know, I was expecting this to be a light, easy kids game... but, man, it's tough to get the right key out and in play first!

Wanted to get a game about touch sensory. Dschamál was my potential target item until I found Doktor Schlüsselbart. This game comes with more attractive components and theme. The rules enable more players playing at the same time, making a more exciting gameplay. It's not a game just for kids. Adults enjoy it too.

It's more strategic in a 2-player game. Playing with 3 players gives your decision time. Playing with 5 players is more tense but also a bit messy.

My copy got some incorrect parts, but fixed. Thanks Zoch customer service.

It is a good game from 5-6 years old, but even we, adults have enjoyed it.

nice little game for the hole family.
every player chooses the right key (1 of 12)just with your hands out of the bags to unlock the right door and put dr. schlüsselbart in the right room of his castle.

Another "feeling game": In Doktor Schlüsselbart the kids have to search a castle for four parts of an elixier. This is done by finding the matching keys for the doors inside of the castle. The tricky part is that all the keys are in a big bag (each kid has their own) and they have to find the key without seeing it. The keys are as different as keys can be but the kids really do better most of the times finding them then the adults do. Here lies the nice part of this game: it can be played with kids and adults without giving the adults an handicap. Most adults are so used to trust their eyes more then their hands that they have quite some problems with finding the correct keys...
Great components, everything seems as it should be. Really nothing to complain about here.

Fun game for children that also parents can enjoy (which are most of the games produced by Zoch).

Less hectic (and cruel) than Dschamal, but also less fun (at least for me). Annoying if you are trying to get the Doctor to a specific location and your plans are continuously thwarted.

Houses "Haste Worte" and "Scheibenkleister".

[Zoch 'Doktor Schlüsselbart' 2006 edition] {Fantasy, kid, racing; action, perception; optimal 4-5p} {Adult 5; Kid 7.5} DS is a unique perception game. Players compete to find a correct key to move the wizard in a house. It is fast and engaging! It is fairly easy to distinguish the 12 keys; therefore players have to find key fast. A typical game runs around 20-30 minutes, which is just right before players are getting bored.

It's silly fun for both kids and adults. The graphics are cute, colorful and attractive.

I was so excited when I read about this game. I thought it would be perfect for my non-gamer friends (just like Igloo Pop was a hit).

But its not. The game is too simple, and the novelty of finding keys in a bag wears off really quickly. A bit frustrating and not satisfying to play.

'Grabbing game' in the same vein as Dschamál and Ramba Samba (also by Zoch). But as everybody grabs in their own bags, it loses a lot of tension. So in the end, it's simply a lot less fun to play. Ad since that's what all these games are about, it doesn't deliver. Better get Dschamál instead.

I detested the box graphics so much I resisted buying this for a long time, but player comments and pictures of the components changed my mind.

The board & card graphics are actually very nice, and the rest of the components excellent. I do think for children the bottles (which have autumn colors and don't match the rest of the game) should have been more brightly colored, like the keys which by the way, perfectly match the colors of the bags.

Have yet to play. Just checked out the components

You pick the right key (one of three) for doors to get the common piece to the four elixers. When he does, the game is over. You are picking the keys blind from a bag.
