Thanks to Goliath Games who sent us their HARRY POTTER SPELLCASTERS GAME to try out. We had lots of family game time fun pretending to be wizards and witches practicing for our Hogwarts exams. Instead of being in the drafty castle of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry though we were flicking and swashing the replica Harry Potter wand that comes included with the game on our comfy backyard patio.

In this charades style game players need to guess what spells are being cast by whoever is wielding the wand. A number of spell tiles are laid out for everyone to see. The first spellcaster then secretly pulls from a blind deck a card selecting one of those spells to cast. That person waives the wand to duplicate the pattern displayed on their card to cast a particular spell that is a mystery to the game's other participants.

The first person to recognize the spell being cast from the tiles on display laid out before them wins the round. That person picks up the tile for the spell they guessed and becomes the next Spellcaster.  When someone successfully guesses a spell the caster keeps the card otherwise it gets put back into the draw deck. The game goes on until the last card from the blind deck is drawn. Whoever collects the most spell tiles and cards wins the game.

Recommended for 3 - 8 players aged 6+. A typically game lasts about twenty minutes. HARRY POTTER SPELLCASTERS GAME includes 32 spell tiles and spellcaster cards, a plastic wand and play instructions.
