There's a Magical HARRY POTTER-Themed Version of SCRABBLE Coming
When a board game teams up with a pop culture franchise, sometimes it can add fun new twists to the game inspired by the franchise that make the game feel different and exciting. Harry Potter is getting its own version of Scrabble that makes it legal to use words from the wizarding world such as “muggle.”
You’ll also be allowed to use proper names of characters and locations. If you are able to spell a magical word such as a spell name, you’ll get a Magical Word bonus. So far, this is nothing that requires anything more than a group of friends saying, “let’s play Scrabble, but with Harry Potter words and you get a bonus for each one you get.”
The one thing that seems to mix things up is that there are cards with missions you can try to complete for bonus points.
Scrabble: The World of Harry Potter comes from USAopoly and will be launched in Spring 2019 for $29.95.
