My guess would be to:

1. Pull the blue x3 from the second column from the left, which will trigger at least two more explosions (red x4, black x2), then...
2. Use the balm of sticky (green potion) to grab the column of 3 black balls from the middle column.

[EDIT] Wait, when you grab the ingredient, can you only grab ONE color that's not in a group? If so, then my solution is flawwed.

Assuming I understand the rules correctly (I only read the player aid), I would:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Take the yellow from the middle column, get 4 black and 3 blue, place the 4 black and 2 blue.

Use the green potion to take the 3 red in the 2nd column, use 2 on the potions to finish them.

Put the leftover blue, yellow, and red in the pool.


Now I want to get this game! I didn't know anything about the gameplay before today!

If I'm reading the rules and that image correctly. The two bottom potions are already completed and ready to be used.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Pull the yellow from the middle row 3rd from the bottom. Four black explode to fill the bottom of the two potions in the brewing area. leading to the blue exploding to fill the middle of our potions. Next we drink the green sticky potion to take the tree red at the top of the 2nd column to complete the potions we are trying to brew. This will leave 1 yellow, 1 blue and one black in hand to place in the ingredient pool.


Edit: ninja-ed

You can only take one.

Drink green potion and take 3 black from middle row, then take 3 blue from 2nd row triggering red and then the other blacks needed.

Pick the black marble in the rightmost column. That will trigger three explosions, getting you 2 red, 2 yellow, and 3 blue. Use the green potion to grab the 3 black marbles from the middle column.
