There is no doubt J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter has become a real phenomenon, an entire generation  of both children and adults has become huge fans.

The commercial success of Harry Potter is not limited to the book sale. Harry Potter merchandising is huge. The brand has teamed up with licensees on everything from Harry Potter wands to animatronics. There are Harry Potter theme park, Wizarding World theme park attractions. You can watch the Harry Potter movies while eating Harry Potter Jelly Bean and drinking Harry Potter Butter Beer Soda, dress up with your Harry Potter Hooded Bathrobe.

But today, what I want to speak about is games, Harry Potter board games.

 



Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle A Cooperative Deck Building Game

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a cooperative deck building game. It is made  for 2  to 4 players and takes   between 30 minutes and 60 minutes (could take  more) , depending on which game you’re playing.

In the game, players take on the role of a Hogwarts student: Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville, each with their own personal deck of cards that’s used to acquire Resources.

By gaining influence, players add more cards to their deck in the form of iconic characters, spells, and magical items. Other cards allow them to regain health or fight against villains, keeping them from gaining power. The villains set back players with their attacks and dark arts. Only by working together will players be able to defeat all of the villains, securing the castle from the forces of evil.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a fantastic introduction to cooperative games and deck building for new gamers. If there are Harry Potter fans in your family, I highly recommend you give that game a try. My kids are huge Harry Potter fans, and they absolutely love that game. It is one of our best family board games at the moment.

Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game

In Harry Potter Magical Beasts, players will explore the interior of Hogwarts in search of magical beasts. Each player will play the part of an Harry Potter character, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger or Ginny Weasley in a race to capture one of six magical beasts.You will collect clues to track down creatures inside and outside Hogwarts.

The goal of this Harry Potter board game is for the players to get four cards corresponding to one beast.

This Harry Potter game is basically a roll and move game.It means that each turn, a player will roll the dice and the number on the dice will be the number of space he will move his character on the board.

When a player lands on a tile that indicates a type of a card (Color, Size, Location or M.O.M (Ministry Of Magic) ), they can draw one card from that pile. The card is then placed facedown. If you get  another card of that type, you will place the new card on top of the other card.

The dice is a normal dice but instead of the 1, the side is showing a “P”. When the “P” is rolled, the player who rolled it, gets to go to a passage (location space marked with a “P”) of his/her choice. All other players not on a “P” are temporarily removed. The game board then shifts and the player who rolled the “P” are able to put the other players on any tile of his/her choosing and can steal one of their cards.

The winner is the player who gets all four cards of each type for one magical beasts first.

I would commend Harry Potter Magical Beasts if you want to play a simple game with younger kids. It is a pretty simple roll and move game, so this Harry Potter board game is purely based on luck so not so much strategy in this game. Fun for younger kids.
