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!

Also new and in stock is the Harry Potter Hogwarts House Cup Challenge Game from NECA. This new board game, which we saw previewed at Comic-Con over the summer, is described as “Test your knowledge and skill with this Harry Potter Hogwarts House Cup Challenge Game. This game allows 2 – 4 players to portray Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville in their quest to win the House Cup for Gryffindor. Players move their characters around the board encountering Adventure Cards and increasing their Knowledge, Skill and Honor. As the Characters’ abilities grow, they face harder challenges based on the first five Harry Potter films. For 2-4 players. Ages 9 and up.”

I bought the HP Clue game a couple weeks ago and it is so much fun!!! My friends and I had a great time playing it!

I have the old Mystery at Hogwarts game. It was pre-movies and is awesome. Though this new one sounds similar, I still want it!

Avatar Image says:

I have both ‘Harry Potter Scene It’ games! I can’t wait to get a hold of the Clue game! Clue is our absolute favorite, at my house! These games look AWESOME! Makes me wonder when ‘Monopoly’ will get “on board” [no pun intended] and come out with a ‘Harry Potter Monopoly’...don’t quite know what they’d call it, but they have one for just about everything else! LOL

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, I have the Mystery at Hogwarts game too, which I think is great because of the illustrations. The new ones are cool, but they don’t have the same feel.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, I love pre-movie HP merchandise. I can’t remember where most of it is but it has a certain non-commercial air to it… you know, despite being merchandise. hehe

Avatar Image says:

Hey guys, is this available worldwide or only online?

Avatar Image says:

OMG, that’s amazing. I LOVE Clue and, oddly enough, I love Harry Potter as well. I must have it!

Avatar Image says:

that so cool i cant wait to get go ron !!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

For years I have wanted them to come out with a Harry Potter Monopoly! I have even seriously thought about adapting it myself and even made some plans in that direction …. Go To Azkaban…Go Directly To Azkaban… Do not not pass Platform 9 3/4 and Do Not collect 200 Galleons!

I even got some “witchy” playing pieces in the form of small Halloween colorful ornaments … A Hat, A Ghost, A Pumpkin, A Black Cat,... Board games are great fun anyway and now I know what I will be giving for Holiday presents!

Avatar Image says:

They should do a Harry Potter edition of “Life”.... my kids would love that! me too

Avatar Image says:

i find it strange that theres not been a HP Monopoly. I’d buy one.

Avatar Image says:

Will these games be able to be bought in British shops, or can us Brits only get them over the internet??

Avatar Image says:

i want the Clue game!! ahh, why do i want so many things..?

Avatar Image says:

To answer the question from KS, I bought mine at the store! I’m sure you will be able to find it wherever games are sold!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah. I love Clue, this is great, blah, blah, blah. You know what? It’s a tough time to be a die-hard Harry Potter fan. We have no movie next month. We have no more books to look forward to. We have no interviews with JKR. By the way, WHY is that? Grrr.

Avatar Image says:

The Clue game looks amazing, I want it.

Avatar Image says:

Cool! The new “official” HP Clue sounds EXACTLY the same as the old “Mystery At Hogwarts” game that I still have floating around somewhere. Well, except for newer things like Luna, and the whole wheels bit sounds new, and last time you had to get past Fluffy, not get into Dumbledore’ office, which seems like a much more reasonable solution.

The Hogwarts Cup challenge looks interesting, and while I appreciate the ability to play as Neville, WHERE’S THE RAVENCLAW EDITION?

Avatar Image says:

OMG. Dude, I want those ! :) I’d play those all Christmas long. That’s so fun!

Avatar Image says:

ME WANTTT

Avatar Image says:

Sounds fun! Is the House Cup game based on book trivia? I’ll have to get the Clue; no one will play Scene It with me anymore.

Avatar Image says:

First off, is this what Americans call Cluedo? Sounds about right. And can someone please answer about it being sold abroad, or if it’s only going to be sold internationally over the internet. I’ll get it either way though, it sounds fantastic!

Confederate Lady, I agree – where the heck is Harry Potter Monopoly? They’ve had ten years to develop what could be the best boardgame in history.

Avatar Image says:

I’ve seen the Clue game at Toys-R-Us.

I so want it.

Avatar Image says:

I just bought Harry Potter Clue game. It is awsome! I can’t find Hogwarts Cup Challange game. Someone please tell me where to find one! I need it. The games looks awsome.

Avatar Image says:

i want trivia games based on the BOOKS not the movies!

Avatar Image says:

OMG!! Are they going to be released in the UK because I NEED them!!

Avatar Image says:

ohhhh mannn…. clue is my absolute favorite board game… words cannot express my reaction to this. :D

Avatar Image says:

I so need the Harry Potter Clue! So it is available in stores right? I got so frustrated with the fact that there is no Harry Potter Monopoly that I have actually made my own version, board and galleons and all.

Avatar Image says:

They should have the four houses in the Hogwarts House Cup game.

One I was after was Clue, is it one puzzle you have to get over and over again or is there different ones, like Voldemort with Avada Kedarva in the Kitchen, Draco Malfoy with a Hammer of Doom in the Library, different ones.
