Review: Magic School Mystery Tabletop Game
Are you a fan of the Harry Potter video games but new to tabletop gaming? We’ve found you the perfect game. Magic School Mystery is a tabletop RPG (role-playing game) for players who love crafting a story together. A headmaster or headmistress acts as the gamemaster and guides the young students through their time at a magical school (as created by the players). The students collect Answers to help them solve the mystery, learn spells, get in detention, and tell a story together.
Can you solve the mystery before the school year ends?
We decided to answer that question for ourselves with a team of MuggleNet staff members. Aly became the headmistress of Sowtail School and led players Amanda, Emily, Gayle, and Gretchen through a two-part session to solve the mystery of Professor Bane. Here’s what we each thought of the game.
Overall, we each thought Magic School Mystery was a fun wizarding game that allowed players to be creative and whimsical. The simple structure and gameplay make it perfect for RPG newbies or parents looking to introduce their children to tabletop gaming.
You can back the game on Kickstarter to receive the rule book and other bonus goodies from the developers. Don’t miss your chance to bring home Magic School Mystery!
