Harry Potter is one of the largest fandoms to exist, with a loyal fanbase that continues to grow the franchise. Fans enjoy nothing more than immersing themselves in the wizarding world of Harry Potter – whether it’s through video games or theme parks. Whether you’re a Slytherin or Gryffindor, we’ve found the game you need to add to your Harry Potter collection and it is the Hogwarts house quiz. The cleverly named Cards Against Muggles is a spin off the popular Cards Against Humanity game.
The developers recommend the game for those aged over 17, making it the perfect purchase for adult Potter fans. Harry Potter Cards Against Muggles follows the same format as the original game, with cards that allow you to fill in the blank to create a hilarious phrase. You get one card with a Harry Potter related phrase and choose another to fill in the blank. As it’s an adult game, you can expect a few profanities and raised eyebrows throughout your gameplay. You’ll never be able to think of Harry Potter the same way again.
The game rules are easy as Cards Against Humanity, with each player holding ten white cards in their hand. Players take it in turns to be the Card Czar and select a black card. As the Card Czar, they judge the other players on how they use their white cards to fill in the bank. The Card Czar reads out each of the answers to the group. Whoever can provide the best white card to respond to the prompt wins the round.
Cards Against Muggles is a card game that retails for $60 and comes with more than 1000 cards for endless gameplay. Although the game has previously only been available for download, PickCards offering it in a physical copy, saving you time and money by not having to print your own cards and game set.
Some of the mix and match cards include “After months of practical magic, I think I’m finally ready for…”, “Having to explain to Madam Pomfrey why you used engorgio on your d**k”, and “I overdosed on Felix Felicis and found…”. Cards Against Muggles is a game that focuses on the art of dark humour and is guaranteed to make you laugh.
While JK Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books for children, most of the original fans are now adults and show no signs of letting go of their childhood hero. The internet is full of Harry Potter fan accounts and websites, proving that the franchise’s main demographics are ‘80s and ‘90s kids. Cards Against Muggles finally gives a game made for this demographic, compared to the family-friendly puzzles and board games commonly made within the Potter franchise.
You’ll find plenty of popular fan theories and references amongst the cards and book phrases that take on a new life in this card game. Amongst the 1,440 cards, it contains 450 black cards and 990 white cards. The black cards act as the opening card, with the white providing the phrase to fill in the blank.
