Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle

From the box: “Play as your favorite characters and defend the wizarding world from evil forces. Enhance your abilities as you build your deck with over 140 cards. Seven successive game adventures offer increasing difficulty as you battle Villains and unlock new abilities, secrets and challenges. Also included are four HOGWARTS house dice, game board, over 50 chip pieces, and sorting cards to keep everything organized.”

Sam says: “A deck building team game, Hogwarts Battle allows you to build a deck around your favorite components of the Harry Potter universe to unite with other wizards and defend the Wizarding World from Voldemort’s followers. I love the uniqueness of each game and the ability to cast spells like a real wizard. Combining deck building and teamwork with a game that changes and grows in difficulty, Hogwarts Battle is great for beginning players and advanced, and is a must play for fans of Harry’s world.”

Dan says: “Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle is a strong cooperative deck-builder with 7 ‘stages,’ one for each book in the series.  As you work through each story, they get progressively more difficult, adding mechanics beyond basic deck-building and enemies that are harder to defeat.  The player decks reset with each story though, so while you can’t carry over the items/heroes you’ve collected in a story to the next one, you can pick any story and play just that story.  The theme works really strongly with the mechanics and game-play is as intense as you’d expect it to be.  The luck factor involved with respect to the order of the enemies can make it frustrating, as a bad order of enemies can doom the game regardless of your skill and teamwork, but overall it’s an enjoyable game to play.”
