Clue: Harry Potter Edition Board Game Review

A Hogwarts student is missing! Search Hogwarts for the clues to the mystery in this new board game. Here's our review.

The Clue: Harry Potter Edition board game is looking a little lonely as it hits stores with the new movie bumped all the way back to Summer '09, but 'tis the season to curl up somewhere warm with friends and family so we popped open a copy to see if it gets an O for Outstanding. The game is about six of the famous characters (Harry, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, Luna and Ron) one of them has vanished and each player plays pics one of the others to play as you search Hogwarts to find out what happened. It's like the regular game of Clue, with each player finding evidence to solve the mystery, but there's more to it! Like the grand staircase at Hogwarts, the board changes, making it tricky to get around. Dark Forces cards can cost everybody House Points, but Ally cards can defend you. Not only is this a sweet new way to play Clue, the board and cards look fantastic and the new features are a lot of fun - even if you get eaten by a troll! It's a bit disappointing that the game isn't about solving a murder, especially since the final Harry Potter book was so full of dead people you could start a zombie army with them, but it's a great twist on a classic game anyway.

Thumbs Up:

  • A very cool Harry Potter twist on a classic game!
  • The board and cards look very nice.
  • It feels great to lock Lucius Malfoy or Dolores Umbridge up!

  • Thumbs Down:

  • You have to put the stickers on the dice? Lame.
  • More cards for more players would have been awesome.

    Hello, this is a forum, about MY favorite video games. And  Maybe you play them as well as me. Here, you can talk about your builds on Minecraft, maybe you have your own map, also you could talk about your best survival world,or more. And on FNAF you could talk about how you got past Night 1, Night 2, Night 3, Night 4, Night 5, Night 6, or the custom night. Maybe you could ask for some tips as well. And, just saying, on steam, FNAF 4 IS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
