Posted by SueTLC

A new game involving the world of Harry Potter is being released for those living in the UK. The Telegraph is reporting today that a board game called “Destination Hogwarts” is due to be launched later this week, created by a woman who was once a cabbie in London. The original version of the board game was created by Rachel Lowe and ” involves collecting
fares to famous places and avoiding traffic lights and speeding fines…The £19.99 Hogwarts edition, featuring places in the Potter books, is being
launched at a Halloween event and shops expect to sell at least 50,000
copies before Christmas.”

You can see a photo of the game with the creator, here. According to the game website, this product is not currently available to ship for those outside the UK. While details on what is involved with the Hogwarts game are not yet online, if anyone has this game, please send in your photos and report and we will add to the post!

Thanks for the heads up Shannon.
