Practice your casting, witches and wizards! Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells marks the first time Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the rest of the Wizarding World crew have Apparated (to use proper Potter lingo) to a match-3 game.
How it plays: This stunningly beautiful puzzler isn’t quite what it seems. As a Hogwarts student, you can wield magic to clear obstacles and solve levels. See a box of fireworks? Cast an explosive Incendio and watch the gems disappear. You’re a wizard, Harry!
Why we love it: Iconic moments are memorialized on the dynamic game board. Mischievous chocolate frogs wreak havoc. Bathroom trolls run roughshod over gems. Self-absorbed professor Gilderoy Lockhart showers the board with autographed photos that need to be cleared. It’s fan service at its finest.
Don’t miss: As Harry knows all too well, you won’t get far without friends. Join a Club as quickly as possible—both to meet pals and so they can give you free lives and XP.
