Played an awful Harry Potter game

So yeah, “Quidditch The Game” is awful horrible no good very bad.

It is the definition of a ‘cash-cow’ game board that wasn’t play tested, doesn’t make sense, and it’s not fun at all.

For more information on the specific game : visit boardgamegeek.com

The art is beautiful, and feel very much like Harry Potter art. The mechanics of the game are very very bad. If everything goes perfect, and each side only has two players, you still must keep playing to a possible 25 rounds. There are 100 tiny tokens, which are tedious to set up. Then you must land a chaser or seeker to turn them over, and you can only turn two over a turn (if you are lucky). There is one snitch in the 100 tokens. It’s a nightmare.

Don’t get me started on the quaffel and the hoops. That’s madness – infuriating madness.

Do not play. I know we won’t ever play it again. We might sell it, since it is a bit of a collector thingy (which is why I bought it in the first place, back in 2000.)
