Clue: Harry Potter Edition Board Game Review

Clue: Harry Potter Edition Board Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 17, 2008
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

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.

    .-. I'm more of an Undertale Fan, but I like FNAF as well. Both are good games.

    1) This belongs in the game section. (Watch this get moved before I finish typing this lol) 2) I personally prefer Undertale (the majority of it anyway..). I don't really like the whole jumpscare thing, however I do Five Nights at Freddy's to be an interesting game for its art and vague storyline. 3) There isn't any such thing as "stealing fans". People's interests change over time. Some people may grow out of Five Nights at Freddy's and move onto Undertale, for some it may be vice versa, and some people may like both.
