Magical beasts have broken loose at HOGWARTS! It’s up to your favorite wizards to capture them in the Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game. Play as Harry Potter™, Hermione Granger™, Ron Weasley™ or Ginny Weasley™ as you collect clues and track down creatures. The dynamic swinging game board adds excitement as you travel in and out of HOGWARTS. The first player to collect a magical beast wins. For 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up.
Muggles and wizards alike will be enchanted by the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze Tournament! It features fast-action Pop ‘n’ Race play as you race around the Tri-Wizard Maze competing to capture the Tri-Wizard Cup! Beware - there are traps along the way that may hurt or help your journey throughout the maze. For 2 to 4 players, ages 5 and up.
Wizards and muggles both agree - these games are perfect for game night!
I was sent both games to check out for myself with my family and as huge Harry Potter fans, we weren't disappointed! We started off checking out the Pressman Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game. Basically, you explore the interior of Hogwarts and the grounds as you try to collect elements to capture the beasts. Be the first to collect all the clues, and figure out which magical beast you have captured! This game is suitable for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up. However, we still let our almost 5-year-old join in so he wouldn't feel left out (with a little help of course). What's truly unique about this particular game is the swinging game board allows play inside and outside of Hogwarts. I had never played a game on this style board so it made it a bit more exciting. The game is very simple and the directions are very easy to follow. The board is beautifully done as well. With that said, as a whole, we did feel this particular game may be best geared towards the younger children as there wasn't as much challenge for the adults. However, that wasn't a big deal to us since it allowed the children to enjoy a new fun game.
The next game night we gave the Pressman Harry Potter Triwizard Maze Game a try. This one is your classic pop 'N' race gameplay with a twist. You need to race through the Triwizard maze to get to the finish line, but beware of magical spell cards which could send you back to start! The twist of the added "action cards" is really fun, causing tons of laughter and Oh no's. The game itself is fun however, it can get a bit boring at the beginning as you need to roll a 6 before you can begin to play. This game is suitable for 2-4 players, ages 5 and up and was perfect for our family so our youngest was able to participate mostly on his own. Basically, this is like the classic game of Trouble, but a lot more fun and, of course, Harry Potter themed!
