Whether you are looking for a board game to give as a gift, or a game that a group of children can play, we have some recommendations for the best Harry Potter games for kids! These games are readily available, and some of them are appropriate for quite young children, while others would be perfect for teenagers (or even adults!). We have weeded out some of the less popular or disappointing games, so this page truly represents only our top choices. Please note that the following links all go to Amazon US. If you would like to see the same games on AMAZON UK, please click here.
For a great game that your kids can enjoy on their own or with any number of other kids, perhaps the best game is the Harry Potter Scene it? DVD Game. This game allows your kids to answer questions about the series of Harry Potter movies, using video clips and on-screen clues and questions. It is a great party game because you can play with any number of people. You can play individually, or you can split the group up into two or three or four groups–the way you decide to play is entirely up to you.
For younger children, the LEGO Hogwarts Game would have to be at the top of the list! This game can be played by up to four players, and it is very highly ranked in the customer reviews on Amazon. Follow our link on over to take a look at some of the glowing reviews! The game involves taking turns to help build the Hogwarts Castle, and it is one of the all-time-favorite Harry Potter games for kids.
Another of the all time favorite Harry Potter games is the LEGO Harry Potter Quidditch Match! This game allows the kids to pretend that they are playing an actual game of Quidditch, which is the Wizarding World equivalent of soccer or football. This is another Lego game, and it is both reasonably priced and popular.
For slightly older kids who prefer a traditional board game, the Harry Potter Clue Game is a popular choice (this game is known as CLUEDO in the UK). It follows the same rules as the traditional and long-time favorite board game CLUE, but it features locations and weapons and characters from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Your kids are sure to get a kick out of this great game. And this is the perfect choice for adults who also want to play a game with their kids. This game also allows up to six players.
If your kids are more into video games, you have several excellent choices. Among the most popular Harry Potter games for kids who have a Nintendo Wii system or Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. And finally, for smaller children, the Wii game LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is an all time favorite (and Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 is also available for pre-order via that same link!). There is also a special Years 1-4 Holiday version that you can see by following the previous link.
No matter which of these games you choose, your kids are sure to enjoy many hours of fun playing in the World of Harry Potter!
