I’ve been looking forward to Clue: World Of Harry Potter since Toy Fair. Usually I hate when a brand takes over a classic, but I’m willing to make an exception for dear Harry Potter. Plus, here’s a case where the brand is an excellent fit and actually brings something to the game you grew up with.
This isn’t just a simple case of trading in Colonel Mustard for Lucius Malfoy and the Billiard Room for the Forbidden Forest. In the beginning you choose one of the Hogwarts students to go missing from the set of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Ginny, and Neville. Then each player becomes one of the remaining students. As with regular clue, you go from location to location and make guesses about who did it, with what, and where, and your opponents show you cards to help you narrow down whodunnit.
