Clue: The World of Harry Potter Review


The last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, has been a massive success with its release.  I haven’t seen it yet, but just the trailer gives me goosebumps.  I can’t wait to see it, it looks amazing. 

My favorite boardgame has always been Clue by Hasbro.  It doesn’t matter what version, any Clue game is fun for me.  I love the mystery and the puzzle of figuring out who the culprit is, what they used, and where it happened.  Imagine my excitement when I heard about Hasbro’s release of the new Clue: World of Harry Potter Edition!  My family and I were extremely lucky to be able to review this game.  It is seriously the coolest version of Clue I have ever played! 
The game comes with quite a lot of pieces, but was easy to assemble.  I read through the directions and taught myself how to play first because it does vary a bit from the original Clue.  The game states that it is for people aged nine years and up; however, my daughter was able to play and she is only seven.  The game’s scenario is that a friend of yours has vanished and you need to figure out who did it, what spell or item was used, and where it happened.  You can play as Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville, Luna, or Ginny.  This game incorporates Floo Powder so you can travel across the board through the fireplaces.  You need to watch out for the Dark Mark or you will have to choose a Dark Card and possibly lose your Floo Powder (which kept happening to me over and over again and not my daughter!)


The contents of the game include: Game board, 6 Identity cards, 6 movers, 29 Help cards, 32 Dark cards, 21 Mystery cards, 1 notepad, 40 Floo powder tokens, 6 Suspect tokens, 6 Item tokens, 1 envelope, 1 green die, 1 black die, 1 label sheet, instructions.

This game was so fun – my daughter and I had a blast playing it and I know this will be a popular choice for Family Game Night!  This game is wonderful for all Harry Potter fans!
