Hogwarts: House Cup Challenge is an Adventure Board Game that allows 2 - 4 players to portray Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville in their quest to win the House Cup for Gryffindor!
Players move their characters around the board encountering Adventure Cards and increasing their Knowledge, Skill, and Honor. As the Characters' abilities grow, they will face harder challenges based on the first five Harry Potter films, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!
Players who complete difficult adventures earn victory points for themselves and for Gryffindor. When Gryffindor reaches 500 points, the player with the most points wins the game!
The First Play Rules allow beginners to play a full game in 30 minutes. The Full Rules allow for a complete adventure as the characters progress and grow through the first five films.

Though Parvati does not start the game as strong as the other characters she does have her twin sister Padma from game start to help her out of tight jams.
