Lovely version of a super light but fun game

Bought this as soon as I saw it having really enjoyed the other 'versions' of Similo.

Its a very simple light fun game to play, works well with any groups (young families, hard core games as a filler etc).

Game is simple enough, one person has a 'target' card that they want the other players to keep on the table by getting rid of 11 other cards over the course of a few rounds - the only clue the clue giver can give is placing one other card on the table either portrait (meaning the card they want you to keep 'alive' is SIMILO to this character) or landscape (meaning the character they want you to keep on the table is not SIMILO to this one).

The version with Harry potter cards is stunning, the art and backgrounds are brilliant drawn and each comes with a little snippet of information. For a small filler card game they have clearly put a lot of love and effort into this.

Can't go wrong for the game at this price, its portable, its simple - and if you want a REAL fun game you can mix two sets together (using one set as the clues and one as the board)

Is Harry Potter Similo or non-similo to Red Riding hood for example ;)

Really love this game, its nothing deep and meaningful but you can bring it out and players always want a second round.

Highly reccomended at this price and with it being such a small portable pack.

GAME OVERVIEW

Harry Potter Similo is a cooperative deduction game where all players work together to identify the secret character using a series of Clues!

This new Wizarding World edition of the critically acclaimed deduction game comes with a deck of 39 big cards beautifully illustrated by Naïade, showing the portrait and the name of a series of characters from the Harry Potter universe.

Fans will try to guess a secret character from the Wizarding World among the twelve displayed on the table. They’ll be assisted by the Clue Giver, who plays cards from their hand as clues, stating whether they are similar to or different from the secret character.

For example, the Clue Giver must lead the Guessers to identify Rubeus Hagrid. They could play Albus Dumbledore vertically, to imply that the Secret Character has a beard, works at Hogwarts School, or helps Harry Potter in many situations. Or, they might play Bellatrix Lestrange horizontally, to point out that the Secret Character is not a villain and it’s not a woman… it will be up to the Guessers to understand what the Clue Giver is trying to suggest!

You can also mix and match different versions by using one deck for the characters and the other for the Clues… will you guess which character has something in common with The Headless Horseman, the Werewolf, and the Ghost from Similo: Spookies?
