We received Harry Potter Triwizard Maze game and Harry Potter Magical Beasts board game in exchange for this post. All opinions and our love for all things Harry Potter remain our own.
I can tell you the moment I heard about Harry Potter. My husband was on a business trip and called on a layover to tell me a mom on the plane was reading to her child and the book had him enjoying it too. He insisted I go to the bookstore and get a copy for our children. From there, my children read it, my grandmother read it, and we still speak of Harry Potter.
There is a magical world where anything seems possible in all things Harry Potter. Now, that world comes to life through two incredibly fun games: Harry Potter Triwizard Maze game and Harry Potter Magical Beasts board game.
The Harry Potter Triwizard Maze game:
The Harry Potter Triwizard Maze game is for 2-4 players, ages 5+. It reminds me of the game Trouble.
It features one of my favorite game pieces, the die popper/pop-o-matic!
This game is fun and moves quickly, making it an excellent choice for the family game night.
This game is also easy for younger kids to play with some help with the cards.
The Harry Potter Magical Beasts board game
Still wanting more Harry Potter for your game night, look no further than the Harry Potter Magical Beasts board game. Designed for 2-4 players, ages 8 and older, this game the user takes on the role of their favorite character: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, or Ginny Weasley. Collect clues to capture the Magical Beasts that have broken loose at Hogwarts as you move around the board.
One of the most unique boardgames out there, this game features a swinging game board that allows you to move from Hogwarts to the grounds outside, adding extra challenges.
We didn’t find this game challenging. It is simple and doesn’t require much skill.
We love family game night and adding the magical world of Harry Potter to the weekly fun makes for some great moments. I love that one is a twist on one of my favorite childhood games, and the other offers a unique board.
We lean more towards the Harry Potter Triwizard Maze Game, but only because it has quick play giving us time to play over and over again in a championship style family game night.
