USAopoly is releasing a new Harry Potter cooperative board game based on the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. In Harry Potter: Death Eaters Rising, players can fight the growing threat of Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters.
Each player must assemble teams of witches and wizards from the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore’s Army, and Hogwarts to fight against the Dark Lord and his minions. Harry Potter and Hermione will represent Dumbledore’s Army; Professor McGonagall and Dumbledore will represent Hogwarts; and Tonks and Sirius Black will represent the Order of the Phoenix.
Players can use those characters to rally other year-five characters to the cause, including Luna Lovegood, Mad-Eye Moody, Snape, Hagrid, Ginny Weasley, and Mrs. Norris. Players will battle against Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucius Malfoy, Peter Pettigrew, and other dark wizards for control of wizarding world locations, such as the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley, and Hogsmeade.
The game is designed for two to four players and will be available this fall for $49.95.
