The OP Games Posts Harry Potter House Cup Competition Designer Interview

Throughout the school year, the four houses in Hogwarts are all trying to earn points to win the prestigious House Cup. You can bring that competition home in Harry Potter: House Cup Competition, coming next year. In this article, they sit down with the game's designer and ask about what went into making this new board game.

From the post:

Harry Potter™ House Cup Competition, the first officially licensed Wizarding World themed worker placement game by Usaopoly (The Op), lets players assign student workers from their favorite house at Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn Lessons, complete Challenges, and earn points towards the coveted House Cup! In this highly strategic use of the “worker placement” mechanic, 2-4 players send out fan favorite Harry Potter film characters (three student representatives per House) to gain Knowledge and Magic skills to use towards objectives of various difficulties. The greater the requirements of the Lesson or Challenge, the more points you earn to fill a unique Hourglass Scoring Display with colored gems. Watch the competition unfold in real time!
