This appeared on BBCW and as a huge Harry Potter fan, I am so excited.
It’s The Boardgames – Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle Cooperative Deck-Building Game.
The forces of evil are threatening to overrun HOGWARTS’ castle in this new cooperative game! It’s up to four students to ensure the safety of the school by defeating villains and consolidating their defenses. Players take on the role of a HOGWARTS student; Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville, each with his or her own personal deck of cards which is used to acquire resources.
By gaining influence, players add more cards to their deck in the form of iconic characters, spells, and magical items. Other cards allow them to regain health or to fight against villains, keeping them from gaining power. The villains set back players with their attacks and Dark Arts. Only by working together will players be able to defeat all of the villains, securing the castle from the forces of evil.
Game board, chip pieces, markers, health tracker boards, 245 cards, dice, card boxes, rules booklets, sorting cards.
Hogwarts Battle is set for an August 2016 release.
