Reviews

  1. The first time some family members were a little confused by the rules, and you need to try and remember the actions of the position cards. However, overall it's a quick easy game which we did enjoy playing. 
  2. Our house loves anything and everything Harry Potter so we had to try this game when we came across it! The presentation of the game is brilliant, it arrives in a strong cardboard box in the shape and design of a chest as seen in the film. Inside you will find instructions (which you have to read a few times before getting), playing cards, the spring-loaded golden snitch, a quaffle and 2 bludgers.

    The game is fast paced and creates madness around the table! There is an element of the game where you have to throw a bludger ball at someone and shout their name, and this person has to try and deflect it to someone else so I can imagine this could lead to arguments or tears. Defiantly a game to have an adult play with the kids to monitor this one.

    Overall this game is a lot of fun, very different to most games and is an exciting challenge for the family. The price of the game I feel is reasonable as well, especially for Harry Potter themed games.  
  3. This was a massive hit in the household as the mere mention of Harry Potter gets the kids excited. The packaging on the unit is really nice and looks like a wizards trunk that we've all seen in the movies. The box itself is pretty compact, and things are packaged away nicely inside.

    More importantly the gameplay...

    I have a 10 and a 7 year old and what seems like a fun premise for the game can start to get quite frustrating. The biggest issue is that things are flying around at certain points, and things are being deliberately thrown at opponents and then deflected. Clearly with younger kids the co-ordination is not always that great and so we have had numerous problem in things being hit or knocked over as a result.
    The card game is pretty simple to understand, and the fact that it is constant action means that everyone is involved, and we don't have waning attention... that is until the bludger gets thrown around the room, and no-one can find where it went.

    In the end we made this a garden game, where we can sit around the table and not be too concerned about the effect on the TV or other ornaments in the house, and this was generally pretty good there. Whilst it says from age 6, there does need to be a decent amount of motor control, to play safely so bear that in mind... and move any valuables from the local are!
