I received both games to help facilitate my review.
My kids continue to love all things Harry Potter so when we were given a chance to review Pressman’s TWO Harry Potter games it was an absolute yes!
Magical beasts have broken loose at HOGWARTS! It’s up to your favorite wizards to capture them in the Harry Potter Magical Beasts Game. Play as Harry Potter™, Hermione Granger™, Ron Weasley™ or Ginny Weasley™ as you collect clues and track down creatures. The dynamic swinging game board adds excitement as you travel in and out of HOGWARTS. The first player to collect a magical beast wins. For 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up.
Muggles and wizards alike will be enchanted by the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze Tournament! It features fast-action Pop ‘n’ Race play as you race around the Tri-Wizard Maze competing to capture the Tri-Wizard Cup! Beware – there are traps along the way that may hurt or help your journey throughout the maze. For 2 to 4 players, ages 5 and up.
Wizards and muggles both agree – these games are perfect for game night!
My take: The kids and I had a great time playing both of these games! Each has a unique twist unlike any other games we have played before. The Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze Tournament Game has a deck of cards that you might have to choose from that can be positive or negative and added a lot of grins and groans along the way.
The Harry Potter Magical Beasts game has you collect clues about the magical beasts so you can sleuth your way to the correct beast. But the interesting twist comes if you roll a “P” and the whole game changes!
