Harry Potter fans are going to love, The Harry Potter Magical Beasts Board Game. It comes in a sturdy colourful box containing a swinging game board, 4 mover tokens, 72 beast clue cards, 4 ministry of magic clue charts and a die. Each player takes on the role of Harry, Ron Weasley, Hermione, or Ginny Weasley.

It appears that Magical Beasts have broken loose at Hogwarts which means that you and three friends need to save everyone by re capturing them.  The player must collect clues to track down the creatures, both inside and outside Hogwarts. A good knowledge of the School and the outer area will help. The danger comes when the players leave Hogwarts and enter the grounds which are treacherous. The swinging board adds to the excitement.

Young Harry Potter fans have tested this game and here are their comments.

We liked how the board flipped over and caused an added extra challenge. It was also good to go to the opposite side of the board to get all the cards. It was great fun to share the knowledge of Harry Potter, Hogwarts and the Magical beasts. Terrific fun.”

This game was thoroughly enjoyed by four young Harry Potter fans that spent happy hours playing the game, recalling names and places from the books.
