A new game involving the world of Harry Potter is being released for those living in the UK. The Telegraph is reporting today that a board game called "Destination Hogwarts" is due to be launched later this week, created by a woman who was once a cabbie in London. The original version of the board game was created by Rachel Lowe and " involves collecting fares to famous places and avoiding traffic lights and speeding fines...The £19.99 Hogwarts edition, featuring places in the Potter books, is being launched at a Halloween event and shops expect to sell at least 50,000 copies before Christmas."

You can see a photo of the game with the creator, here. According to the game website, this product is not currently available to ship for those outside the UK. While details on what is involved with the Hogwarts game are not yet online, if anyone has this game, please send in your photos and report and we will add to the post!

Thanks for the heads up Shannon.

Why on earth not for shipment outside of US?? I know I would rather play the game with strictly UK stuff like pounds instead of dollars, weird date formats, etc. I really hope they don’t Americanize it too much. That happens enough already with the books!

I remember her on Dragon’s Den. They laughed at her and told her the idea was rubbish. I love these kind of stories where she comes back and shows their arse up

Guess That Book

The white king took off his crown and threw it at Harry's feet. They had won. The chessmen parted and bowed, leaving the door ahead clear. With one last desperate look back at Ron, Harry and Hermione charged through the door and up the next passageway.
