Bring glory to Gryffindor or Slytherin in the Harry Potter: House Cup Competition board game

Time to put on the Sorting Hat.

Lead your Hogwarts brethren to victory in Harry Potter: House Cup Competition, the next board game from the makers of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle.

A board game for two to four players, Harry Potter: House Cup Competition has players taking control of three promising students from their chosen Hogwarts house. With the option to play as Harry Potter from Gryffindor, Cho Chang from Ravenclaw, Draco Malfoy from Slytherin and Cedric Diggory from Hufflepuff - as well as a variety of other beloved characters - players will have to compete to ensure that they win the Hogwarts House Cup.

Throughout the school year, players will need to efficiently assign each of their students to various different classes such as Charms, Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts, in order to collect knowledge that can be used to unlock new skills.

Students can compete in house challenges that will score them additional points, which will then be displayed on the game’s house scoring board using columns of tokens. Whichever house successfully gains the most points by the end of the school year is declared the winner and presented with the coveted House Cup.

Harry Potter: House Cup Competition was designed by Nate Heiss, co-creator of co-op board game The Red Dragon Inn: Battle for Greyport and a contributor to trading card game Magic: The Gathering.

USAopoly - the maker of co-op board game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and recently announced party board game Telestrations: Upside Drawn - is responsible for publishing Harry Potter: House Cup Competition.

Harry Potter: House Cup Competition will be available this autumn at a retail price of $49.99 (£38).
