The harder the game, the longer the time we spend on Pottermore, the more fun it is. I wouldn’t have enjoyed it had it been easy!

I have a love/hate relationship with Pottermore. I love all the extras from JKR, the bonus content is my favorite. I managed to keep the cake up but you should probably call someone else for de-gnoming the yard. The sound effects are great and I do love the graphics. I just keep feeling like I’m missing something in each moment. I drag my mouse all over the page just to find a Bertie Bott’s bean. But, I’m excited to see what else will crop up as we work our way through the books.

I had a fun time exploring the new chapters and I loved the new content and extra bits which were revealed to us :) The mini games were a nice surprise too – the degnoming has been the most difficult so far, but after a few concentrated efforts, I managed to throw 5 gnomes over the wall! Although only one got hit on the stump, so I didn’t get much of a bonus, but at least I got to go to the next moment!

I also loved the graphics, sounds, and music from the new chapters, I hope the next ones are just as exciting!

Does anyone know why the games do not work with internet explorer? I can find things but the games just don’t work for me. Am not that tech savy but had no problems with SS.

Hewy – I’m not sure what’s up. They don’t work on my computer at work that runs IE, but they work my home computer that also runs IE. I’ve got Java, even updated it, but I’m obviously missing some plug-in or add-on. I just don’t know what it is! If anyone else knows the answer, please share! :)

I avoid using IE as most things don’t seem to run properly on it a it is so slow. I use Firefox.

@Hedwig, not everyone has your youthful dexterity! I contacted Pottermore over Philosopher’s Stone, as some of the features (especially catching the snitch) would be next to impossible for people with arthritis in their hands, who would not then be able to proceed. At least there should be codes available for disabled people to be able to use Pottermore, so that everyone can enjoy what it has to offer. (I received an acknowledgement, but no reply as such.)

I had to download Google Chrome (which I loathe… I’m a Microsoft girl!) & Pottermore worked fine. Has it not even been out a week? It feels like so much longer!
