Harry Potter Scene it? DVD Game


Board game manufacturer:
Screenlife
Number of players:
2-6
Ages:
8+

If you are familiar with Scene It? games, then you know that you’ll get both a board game with questions and the DVD questions that you should answer in order to progress through the game. Since this is a DVD game, you need to be in an area where players are close enough to the television to be able to see clearly and reach the game board as well.

What you will get is a square tin for the box of the game. It includes 1 game DVD, a game board (called flextime board), 6 collectible metal tokens, 200 question cards, 30 house points cards, 4 category reference cards, 1 six-sided number die, 1 eight-sided category die, 1 set of exclusive Harry Potter trading cards, and over a thousand Harry Potter scenes, stars, images and challenges. It also comes with a set of instructions which is fairly easy to understand.

The game board can be used in two ways depending on how long you want the game to be. For a shorter game, just fold the board in its small circle shape. For longer games on the other hand, the board can be fully extended in which it unfolds in three circles. If you want to make it even more competitive, advance your mover after getting a question right rather than moving at the start of each turn.

The longer version of the game doesn’t really take that long at all if the players know a lot about Harry Potter stuff.

This game is recommended for ages eight to adult. The players need to have some knowledge of Harry Potter too before even trying to play. The questions in this game are mainly based on the movies, but people who’ve read the series but haven’t seen the movie would do just fine.

There are even some Harry Potter trivia questions that would probably be known by only those who’ve read the books. Being completely obsessed with everything to do with Harry Potter is a great advantage in this game. You have to know each characters and their purpose, who plays them in the movie, and a lot of other elements about the film.

The Verdict

Scene It? Harry Potter edition is a fun and entertaining game for all ages, although questions are aimed primarily at children, so adults might find them too easy. It would be a big disadvantage if you don’t know much about Harry Potter, so it is better to read up to make a great competition in this game.

Quick Verdict

After its smashing success both on the big screen and in print, it’s no surprise that Harry Potter Scene It? has been included in the Scene It? collection of DVD movie games. In this game, you will get to enjoy a board game and a DVD game combined into one. This is a great way to relive the Harry Potter frenzy after you’ve finished all the books and seen all the movies (a dozen times).

The game and gameplay

Learning the basics and operating the DVD might take a bit of getting used to at first, but everything becomes clear and easy during the process of playing the game. The interactive approach of this DVD game makes it much more interesting as it can get boring by just reading cards with sets of questions.

The DVD contains clips from the movie and questions are asked at the end of the scenes. Most of the time, the questions are very simple. All you need is to pay attention as you watch the scenes. Though sometimes, they can get a little more challenging.

Each player must select one game piece before every game. If more than six players wanted to play, it is suggested that they play in teams. There’s a good mix of questions included in the game. They can range from very easy, moderate, and very hard – so hard that only someone who is completely obsessed with everything about Harry Potter would have the chance to give the right answer.

Harry Potter CLUE

If players feel they had too much playing with the board, they can do away with rolling the die and house points cards and select the party play from the DVD menu instead. In this awesome feature, the DVD will go through the trivia questions one by one and the group can answer them at their own pace. No winners, no losers, just a lot of trivia fun for everyone.

Pros and cons

This is a great challenging game that will determine who is the most knowledgeable about everything, anything Harry Potter.

While this is a fun game for families and friends, it isn’t necessarily for everyone. If you are not a fan, then this game probably won’t be for you. Sure even a non-fan can have a go but he may not be able to get very far in answering simple questions, let alone the more advanced ones.

It would be best to have watched the films at least before playing this game.

While the game is mainly based on the movies, reading the books can give a great edge against anyone.

The Verdict

For the Harry Potter fan who has everything (else!), Scene It? Deluxe Harry Potter Edition is a perfect gift. It won’t be much fun unless everybody playing is as fanatical as one another.
