Best Harry Potter games for Christmas
1. Harry Potter Cluedo
Cluedo, the classic game of 'who done it?', has been giving a mystical makeover. Instead of Professor Plum in the library, the culprit is more likely to be Professor Snape in the Great Hall.
This fabulous game of mystery is adapted to incorporate all the Harry Potter characters and places of interest. 'Dark Forces Are At Work – A friend has seemingly vanished'. Playing Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville, you must try to discover 'Who Done It', while also deducing what spell or item they used and where the dastardly deed happened.
2. Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
This is for die-hard fans to show off their Potter knowledge! The bitesize edition of this classic quiz game contains 600 trivia questions based on the Harry Potter films.
