harry potter mystery party

Are you looking to host a Harry Potter mystery party? If so, then these murder mystery games may be just what you need: wizards, curses and magic!

Harry Potter mystery party

Strictly, these parties do not use the Harry Potter characters as they are protected by intellectual property and trademark law.

Instead, these party games all have a magical theme – one is set in a wizard’s school, and the others include magical elements.

So while you may not be able to use your favourite Harry Potter characters, you can still host a magical murder mystery party to remember.

spellbound

Set in the Tremaine School of Magic, Spellbound takes place on the last day before the summer break - and the Headmaster has been attacked!

Last night a red cross was painted on his door and this morning the Headmaster, Professor Bennet, has lost his memory!

Someone has used magic to attack the Headmaster - but who?

Spellbound is for 13-17 guests (plus one or two hosts).
