I cannot tell a lie – I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so when I saw this announcement I was pretty excited. USAopoly and Warner Brothers Inc. have announced they will be releasing a Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle Cooperative Deckbuilding Game, and the first up close look will be at Gen Con this August!
The game is for 2-4 players, where the players take on the roles of one of the 4 Hogwarts students: Harry, Hermione, Ron and Neville. Each player will build their own deck and work together to defend Hogwarts from dark magic and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
As you become more a more powerful wizard, you will unlock new spells, items and allies and with each successive adventure, you will gain access to new secrets and challenges.
I cannot wait to have a look at this at Gen Con. I’m very anxious to see what the cards look like in this game- I’m hoping they will have movie based images.
For me, this could easily be a great gateway game to hook someone who may not be an experienced gamer, as it’s operating in a pop culture theme that is so identifiable- and it’s Harry Potter. Enough said.
What do you think of the idea of the Hogwarts Battle?
