With the holidays just around the corner, we have news today that two new Harry Potter board games are now available in our Cauldron Shop. First up, the new Harry Potter edition of the popular Clue game. The game is described by Hasbro, the makers of the board game as follows:
Dark magic has been performed at Hogwarts! A fellow student has vanished from the famous School of Witchcraft and Wizardry”and it is up to you to solve the mysterious disappearance. Play as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville and try to discover WHO did it, WHAT spell or item they used, and WHERE the student was attacked. Was it Draco Malfoy with a Sleeping Draught in the Owlery? Move around Hogwarts making suggestions- but watch out! Wheels on the board actually move to reveal secret passages, hidden staircases, and even the Dark Mark! Think you’ve gathered all the facts you need? Go to Dumbledore’s office to make your final accusation to win the game!
