Reading about a game is often the best way to get more details about it, but a visual aid is sometimes much needed. I find it odd that there are so few images out there of the game components, board, card, tokens, etc. The few pictures in the Gallery depict a rather bland game, and I know this is deceptive so please, will anyone upload some photos of the game that show the real flavor of the Potterverse? If you are afraid about spoiling something, use the

option. Thanks!

I guess the reason is that there aren't that many copies of the game in circulation, yet. If I recall it correctly that had very limited supply of the game during GenCon and most of the copies will be sold sometime October/November

Amazon delivered my copy days ago. Should be readily available in the US. Surprised no one has taken more photos myself.

It is a lot of stock movie photos. The game is based on movie and not the books.

Yep, also it really takes long to ship it to Germany from Amazon.com, mine was send a few days ago, but will be here only in 1 or 2 Weeks.
Quite sad that this is the only option for Europeans to get this

What do you mean? I thought the game would soon be available in Europe (After Essen).

I opened my copy last night. Despite crappy packing from calendars.com, the game arrived in good shape. The box is extra sturdy. The photos on the cards seem to be really well done. I did post an image of my card backs, which are shockingly unevenly colored. The photo shows it, although I think it's more obvious in person than in the image:


The starting decks for the characters I have looked at so far have a couple really dark backs, some mediums, and some lights. The Hogwarts deck also has variations. It's surprising, because generally the game has excellent presentation and production values.

I'm not that into images myself, so I doubt I'll post more. I figured this was newsworthy.
