Similo Adds Harry Potter

February 18, 2022 - 2:00pm

Similo, a cooperative deduction style card game, already has historical characters, fairy tale characters, animals and more.  The game, designed by Hjalmar Hach, Pierluca Zizzi, and Martino Chiacchiera, has now added Harry Potter to the fold. As usual, the artwork has once again been supplied by Naïade.  The game plays 2-8 players, ages 7 and up, and takes about 10-15 minutes to play.

In Similo, the players work together to figure out the secret character that one player - the clue giver - has selected. There is a 4x3 grid display on the table from which the players will try and deduce which character the clue giver is trying to get them to correctly guess.  In each of the game's 5 rounds, the players must get rid of a certain number of cards, depending on the round number.  For example, in round one, the players must eliminate one of the cards in the display based on the clue that the clue giver has given them for that round.  During any round if the players eliminate the secret character all the players lose the game.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Similo can be mixed with other editions of the game.  For further information about the game, including a link to the downloadable rulebook, be sure and check here.
