Having a family who love Harry Potter, shopping can be very easy. My family also big on having game nights so when I saw that Pressman Toys has Harry Potter board games, I knew I had to get them. Pressman has come out with two Harry Potter board games; the Harry Potter Magical Beasts and the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze. Both of these games are 2-4 players but the Magical Beasts game is ages 8 and up and the Tri-Wizard Maze game is ages 5 and up.
We decided to have a game night with my eldest daughter, the 18 year old boy, and the 8 year old boy since he is able to play both and myself. The first one we played was the Harry Potter Tri-Wizard Maze game since we knew it wasn’t going to be a long game. This game is like a mix between Trouble and Sorry; it takes the best part of both games and puts it together. Each player chooses a color based on the character from the Tri-Wizard tournament and then you start to play. Each player takes a turn to play and pick up a card when prompted and the first player to get all four of their pieces in their home spots wins! We had a lot of fun playing this game and even played a few rounds because it didn’t take too long and everyone loved it that much!
After we played that game, we played the other one which is basically Clue with a twist. Each player chooses a character and a spot to start on and takes turn rolling the dice trying to get as many cards as they can to make a match with one of the beasts on their main card. Everyone has the same card and when they land on a spot signifying one of four decks of cards, they can either take one from the top of the corresponding pile or can steal that card from another person. There is a special side on the die though that means it’s time to flip the board to the other side and play from there until another person rolls that symbol and it flips to the other side. The first person to get all four categories to match one of the beasts wins. We really liked this game too because we are a really competitive family who love to play games with each other and be the best. I know my kids loved these games and that my oldest childrens’ significant others liked them too because I caught the four of them playing together on multiple occasions. In conclusion, we love these games and will definitely be looking at more Pressman Toy games and toys in the future!
