During a game of Stupefy!, every player represents one of the four Hogwarts houses, trying to win the honor for their house.
Players start the game with a combination of stunning spell card ‘Stupify’ and Misspell cards, as new wizards mispronounce their spells sometimes. They choose one of these spells to cast, choose an opponent and point their wands to them all at the same time. Again simultaneously, players cast either the spell on their chosen card or the shielding spell Protego. All surviving players, those not stunned by a spell or protected themselves, can now choose from the rewards in the center of the table. These contain extra lessons so you can pronounce your spells right, Time Turners to turn back the time you lost by being stunned, Potions, Favors and House points.
After playing eight rounds, players will score extra house points for their favors and potions and lose some points by being stunned too much. The house with the most points wins the house cup.
Stupefy! is a great party game, easy to explain and if you’re a fan of Harry Potter you’ll definitely have a good time playing it.
The game scales well to the number of players (but you must be at least 4)
There’s a mix of luck and bluffing – you won’t like this when you take it too seriously – but if you’re in for the fun and experience, you’ll have an amazing time.
The component quality is great; especially the shiny cards and 8 different magic wands
Stupefy! is a new version of the popular party game Ca$h ‘n Gun$ which was first released in 2005, and we really can see why it’s so popular. The game is great fun to play with my family, and always causes much laughter at the table. Highly recommended if you’re a fan of the Harry Potter universe!
