Hasbro Cluedo Harry Potter
Advantages: fun, challenging, harry potter themed, inventive variation of classic game
Im not a big fan of Cluedo but I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so when I saw this in waterstones a few years ago I just had to buy it. I remember it should have been £24.99 but it was on offer with £5 off the price so I quickly snatched one up and hurried over to the counter.
It plays pretty much the same as Cluedo - the aim of the game is to find out who did it, with what and where - but there are some added extras in this to fit in with the harry potter theme. The instructions are exciting on they're own as they are set out and look like the daily prophet! The board is set out like the inside of Hogwarts with rooms and locations that Harry Potter fans will know and love. The main feature with this version of Cluedo that is different from the original is the rotating bits of the board underneath each corner - which makes the secret passages and doorways move and disappear in true harry potter style. There is also the dark mark card, which can have different affects of the player or on other players, however you can also collect magic spells and items throughout the game to help you escape the effects of the dark mark! You also have House Points in the game, and if you loose all of these before the game is through then you are out - which is also an added feature of this version of Cluedo.
Overall this is a great variation of the original Cluedo game, and if you love harry potter then you will love this, everything from the look of the board to the added extras is great for any harry potter fan. It does take a while to get used to the rules of play, especially if like me you have rarely played cluedo, but once you get going its great fun.
Summary: great inventive variation of the classic 'who did it' game
