Have you ever wanted to have a pocket full of wizardry, fantastic beasts and magical adventures? Coming soon is a Harry Potter trading card game that'll bring Harry Potter and Hogwarts to your home.

Harry Potter, the young wizard who lives in the cupboard beneath the stairs at 4 Privet Drive, is famous in a big way. Harry Potter is coming to the bigscreen on November 16, 2001 in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Philosophers Stone if you're in the UK.) Harry's also making the transition into video games, courtesy of Electronic Arts and, thanks to Wizards of the Coast, he's coming home to you as a Trading Card Game (TCG) to boot.

If you've played the Pokemon TCG or the Magic: the Gathering TCG then you have an idea of what Harry's game is like. If not, think of it like hockey cards - but you can play a game with them as well as collect and trade them.


Harry Potter TCG


The rules for the game haven't been set in stone yet but when you play you get to be one of the wizards at Hogwarts. You get a handful of cards that each do different things and the goal of the game is to make all of your opponents cards 'disappear' by using spell cards, potion cards, magical beast cards and your own tricks.


Whether you're new to card games or if you're a pro, it doesn't matter. There are basic, advanced and expert levels so everybody can play. The Starter Set (for apprentice wizards) will show you how to play and teach you a few tricks to use against those sneaky Slitherin. Later, you'll be able to graduate to advanced, expert or (starting in 2002,) to the Harry Potter TCG League where you can compete for prizes and championships.


1I own almost every single book mark, a diary, all the books, two posters, two big puzzles and five mini ones. I am saving for the Hogwarts train, I have a musical snow globe and I have seen the movie four times so far.

    Recently on Friday of this week Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been released. If you thought broken game releases on the PS4 and Xbox one were cool. You don't know what your missing from Smash Bros on the Wii U. For starters it's 60 frames per second and runs in 1080p. That's a plus when you look at recent popular games like Call Of Duty Advance Warefare (PS4) which runs at 1080p and the frame rate drops down dramatically on campaign. But those frame rates and graphics resolutions aren't holding the game from show casing over 40 fighters to chose from.
