Dark magic has been performed at Hogwarts! A fellow student has vanished from the famous School of Witchcraft and Wizardry -- and it is up to you to solve the mysterious disappearance.
Play as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville and try to discover WHO did it, WHAT spell or item they used, and WHERE the student was attacked. Was it Draco Malfoy with a Sleeping Draught in the Owlery?
Move around Hogwarts making suggestions -- but watch out! Wheels on the board actually move to reveal secret passages, hidden staircases, and even the Dark Mark! Think you've gathered all the facts you need? Go to Dumbledore’s office to make your final accusation to win the game!
Harry Potter Clue adds depth to regular Clue and has good improvements. Your character is not pulled into a room when somebody "suggests" you. The extra cards not passed out are put in the center which everybody must travel to view. Each turn there is a chance the "Dark Mark" appears and something bad happening to multiple players. The rotating doors and passageways are a cool twist.
However one annoyance is the House Points. You can lose the game if you lose your House Points before the who/where/what is solved. Each time the Dark Mark appears you have a high likelihood of losing points. The only prevention is obtaining "Help" cards. The first game I played I lost all my House Points before making any Suggestions. The second game I played I spent a lot of time obtaining Help cards but still lost all House Points, and again never got to make a Suggestion. Of these two 4 player games, 1 or 2 players in each game got knocked out by House Points. This means there is essentially a time limit on the game. You may need to rush to guess the who/where/what before you run out of House Points.
Of course this could have been bad luck. But overall an improvement over regular Clue I think.
