USAopoly to Release “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle” Board Game
It’s been a long while since new Harry Potter board games have hit the toy store shelves. In fact, it has been so long that older games are considered valuable collector’s items. However, with the releases of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, new Harry Potter merchandise has been popping up everywhere. Recently, we talked about the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them clothing line, new Fantastic Beasts Funko POP! figures, and Fantastic Beasts interactive books. Now, we are finally getting new Harry Potter board games! USAopoly has created a Harry Potter-themed deck-building game called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle.
This new interactive board game puts you right in the middle of the Battle of Hogwarts as one of four heroes: Harry, Ron, Hermione, or Neville. From there, your character of choice must complete seven challenging tasks, each more difficult than the one before, to protect Hogwarts from the threat of Voldemort, Death Eaters, and any other heinous villains lurking on school grounds. But do not despair! Your character will have the chance to collect new spells and magical abilities that will help you fight against the Dark Lord.
You begin the game with a set of cards of specific items that are individualized to your character. For example, if you were to choose Harry, he would come with Hedwig – a companion who can either heal you or attack your foes – and his Invisibility Cloak. By using these magical items and collecting spells, potions, and ally cards, you can work your way up through all seven challenges to defeat Voldemort and save Hogwarts and the wizarding world.
If you’ve ever wondered how you would fare in the Battle of Hogwarts, this is just the game you have been waiting for! This game will only be available to those in the US and Canada. You can pre-order it now at the Harry Potter Shop, and it will be ready to ship out September 9, 2016.
