A classic game meets a classic story! In Clue World of Harry Potter there are Dark Forces at work. A friend has vanished and its up to you to rescue them before its too late. Playing as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville, you must try to discover who did it, what spell or item they used and where the student was attacked. Was it Fenrir Greyback with a Cursed Necklace in the Forbidden Forest? Use the Floo Network to travel faster through the wizarding world — but watch out for unlit fireplaces! When you’re sure of your facts, return to the Burrow to make your final accusations and win the game!
I love the game Clue. It is something that I remember playing a lot as a kid. When I found out that they had combined Clue and Harry Potter into one game, I was ecstatic! I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I was so excited to play this game.
The rules are pretty much the same as the original Clue with a few added twists. Instead of moving through secret passageways, you move using the Floo Network. The Floo Network is moving through fireplaces. They have also added spinning wheels to the board which you move by the roll of a special dice. The wheels cause the entrances of the different rooms to open and close. They have also thrown in the Dark Mark which causes you to lose Floo Powder and other things. You are not alone in the quest for finding your lost friend. There is a special help deck that you use to gain allies and spells to help you along the way.
My family and friends had a very fun time playing this game. We played it for hours! The only complaint that we had about this game was that the ‘suspect’ and ‘items’ are plain cardboard discs. In the original Clue, you had mini real objects to manipulate as you tried to solve the mystery. We felt that the discs were sort of cheap.
If you are a fan of Clue and Harry Potter, this game is one that you must buy!
