USAopoloy summons three new wizarding world-inspired games this year
USAopoly (The OP) today announced two new Harry Potter-inspired, themed tabletop games – SCRABBLE: World of Harry Potter and Harry Potter Defence Against the Dark Arts – and teased an unannounced Wizarding World cooperative game that will be launched later this year. Let the games begin!
Wizarding World fans will be excited for SCRABBLE: World of Harry Potter, which adds a magical twist to the original word game. In addition to the traditionally allowed words, players can apply their Wizarding World vocabulary to earn Magical Word bonuses. Character names, places from the wizarding world, spells and potion names are all accepted in the game. Players can also enhance their score by completing directives from Harry Potter cards, which are unique to this version of the game. SCRABBLE: World of Harry Potter will be available at Barnes & Noble and local games stores for $29.95 MSRP in spring 2019 (U.S. and Canada only).
For witches and wizards looking to test their head-to-head abilities comes Harry Potter Defence Against the Dark Arts, a two-player competitive deck-building game inspired by the popular Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle. In this fast-paced game, players must learn offensive and defensive magic skills to protect themselves from Dark Creatures and Dark Arts, and eventually take down their opponent. Harry Potter Defence Against the Dark Arts will be available this summer.
