Review & Giveaway: Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
Posted by Megs

The lovely folks over at USAopoly have sent us a copy of their new game, World of Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit, for review. They also provided a second for a giveaway! Sadly it is only open to our fans in North America.  Details on the review are at the bottom of this post, now it’s time for the review.

Comprised of 600 trivia questions that span across the entire Potter universe, Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit features 6 categories including: The Dark Arts, HOGWARTS™, Magical Spells & Potions, Magical Objects, Magical People, and Animals & Magical Creatures.  Now you can answer questions like, “What is the full name of the driver on the night bus?” from the Magical People category, or questions like “What does Dumbledore conjure to protect himself and Harry from the Inferi in the cave?” from the Dark Arts category.

World of Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit - USAopoly

The great thing about this game is that it’s portable. It comes in a small triangular shaped box with the cards and a die so you can play anywhere you want. Long road trip ahead? Pack the game! Babysitting some Potter fans? Bring it along and teach them your ways.  Another cool thing is you can use the cards along with your full version of trivial pursuit as well.

Since this is a mini version of the game, it is also completed much quicker than the classic version. There are a few ways to play depending on the speed you want it finished.  I am the Harry Potter genius in my local group of friends so, when we played, it was a little bit one sided. However, even though I was the champion, obviously, everyone really enjoyed the game! We didn’t get through all cards, but there are some that can challenge even the smartest Potter fan.

I can’t wait to play the game with my die-hard Potter friends. Sadly we live all over the country so it may be some time before that happens. But when it does, it will be a battle royale!

And now, the giveaway! The only mandatory entry is leaving your email so we can contact you if you are the winner. Everything else is optional.

A couple weeks ago, Magical-Menagerie was able to attend the Diagon Alley Media & VIP Preview event.  Let me tell you, the expansion will not disappoint. All of us in the group were wishing we had more sets of eyes (like Harry said in the first book.)  The scale is amazing, you really do not know that you’re inside a theme park while inside Diagon Alley. It is also noticeably cooler inside, which is a plus for those hot Summer days.

Alan Gilmore, the art director of the park (who also worked on the films) clued us in on a fun little tidbit while we were waiting in line to go on Escape from Gringotts. He told us that the Harry Potter theme parks have 4 different garbage cans and no other theme park does that.  There is a Gringotts Bank, Diagon Alley and then 2 others so you feel fully immersed into the settings.  Sadly the ride was still not complete so we didn’t get to experience the actual ride, but the line is worth it even if you don’t partake.

View all our coverage of the event, including tons of video footage, here!
