Harry Potter 5 Second Rule Games launch at PlayMonster

Published on: 16th October 2023

Based on the chart-topping 5 Second Rule boardgame, the Harry Potter version comes with a Hogwarts-themed gameboard and is available now, along with a mini game.

PlayMonster UK is delighted to introduce two brand new 5 Second Rule games, from the No.1 Travel Game (Circana September 23) which has sold millions of copies in more than 50 countries.

In collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, two new Harry Potter 5 Second Rule games feature hundreds of bewitching questions focused on the Wizarding World. Players are challenged to come up with a trinity of answers in 5 seconds or less to win. Perfect for Harry Potter fans of all ages, the games are a great addition to any party, family game night or for Christmas entertainment.

Based on the classic, chart-topping 5 Second Rule boardgame, Harry Potter 5 Second Rule comes with a stunning Hogwarts-themed gameboard. Wizards, Witches and Muggles go head-to-head with over 300 magical questions all about the wizarding world, and fun questions include listing People You’d Like to Stupify, Magical Creatures, Supplies You Might Need for a Hogwarts Class and more. Fans can represent their favourite Hogwarts House and try to be the first player to conjure up triple answers in 5 seconds or less and make it to the end of the board. Suitable for players aged 8 and over, the game is available from October 2023.

The new Harry Potter 5 Second Rule Mini game has been designed to magic away boredom on journeys with 180 wizarding questions, plus special Protego or Transfiguration cards that enable players to pass or change questions. Designed for play on the go, the mini Harry Potter 5 Second Rule game comes in a handy tube with cards and a timer. Suitable for ages 8+, it is also available now.

Justin Clasby, director of International Marketing at PlayMonster UK, commented: “We are thrilled to offer fans the chance to put their Wizarding World knowledge to the test with our new 5 Second Rule Harry Potter games. It’s surprising how quickly your mind goes blank when you only have 5 seconds to come up with three answers – almost as if you have been hit with an obliviate spell! Hilarious answers are guaranteed; whether you see yourself as an expert or not. It’s fantastic family entertainment, and we know these games will be extremely popular.”
