The game is going to be for two-plus players and will have you playing as the iconic characters from J.K. Rowling’s magical world, facing off against the forces of Voldemort and more.
“In this game, each player takes control of a group of witches and wizards from the Harry Potter cinematic saga, each represented by a finely detailed resin miniature, sculpted to exacting detail in collaboration with Warner Bros. Each 35mm miniature is produced in high-quality resin, making it ideal for collectors, painters and gamers alike.
During the game, players must outmanoeuvre their opponents across beautifully illustrated game boards representing many of the iconic locations from the Wizarding World, such as Hogwarts, the Chamber of Secrets, and the Forbidden Forest. Players must explore these environments, resolving Challenges and Quests in order to secure victory.”
This, as well as the video above, are all we have on the game right now but it looks like a fantastically complete product with plenty of scope and some amazing models!
This seems like it was the best route to go down for a game based in the Potterverse. Having it tightly focused on narrative moments and adventures in a ‘board’ format works a little better than making it a freeform miniatures game.
Hopefully, we’ll find out more about the game in the run-up to the Kickstarter!
What do you think from an initial glance at what’s coming?
