8 Harry Potter Games Every Potterhead Should Play

Harry Potter fans are truly in a league of their own.

Potterheads are devoted to J.K. Rowling's beloved book series as a dragon is to protecting its eggs. We don't just want to read and reread the seven books; we also want to talk about them, share our love for them and even play games based on them. Luckily, there are plenty of those. Options include apps, board games, trivia and the like, so whatever your taste in games, you'll find one that speaks to your Potter-loving heart.

Read on for eight Harry Potter-inspired games that'll make you happy as a dose of Elixir to Induce Euphoria.
