CARLSBAD, Calif.– June 25, 2019 – USAopoly® (The OP) today announced their latest Wizarding World-themed creation: HARRY POTTER™: Death Eaters™ Rising. Based on the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Death Eaters Rising is a cooperative card and dice game where players must join forces to fight the growing threat of Lord Voldemort™ and his Death Eaters. HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising flies onto shelves this fall.

“HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising captures the difficulties and terrors Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger faced during their fifth year at Hogwarts as they scramble to persuade the wizarding world of Voldemort’s return,” said Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly. “Just as setbacks and devastation befell Harry and his friends during their journey, players can expect an equally challenging path to success in Death Eaters Rising that makes victory much more rewarding.”

In HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising, each player must assemble teams of witches and wizards from the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore’s Army and Hogwarts to fight against the growing threat of the Dark Lord. Starting with either Harry Potter or Hermione Granger™ representing Dumbledore’s Army, Minerva McGonagall™ or Albus Dumbledore™ from Hogwarts™, or Nymphadora Tonks™ or Sirius Black™ from the Order of the Phoenix, players will be able to rally a variety of year-5 characters to their cause. These include fan-favorite characters, Ginny Weasley™, Luna Lovegood™, Alastor Moody, Mrs. Norris, Severus Snape™ and Rubeus Hagrid™. The collective armies and players must then work together to stop the spread of dark influence throughout the wizarding world.

Players will have to battle Dark Wizards Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucius Malfoy and others that bear the dark mark for control of key wizarding world locations, including the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade Village. To be successful, players must vanquish Voldemort’s Death Eaters and eventually defeat You-Know-Who before they corrupt and take control the wizarding world.

HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising is designed for 2-4 players ages 11 and up, with an estimated runtime of 45-60 minutes. The cooperative card and dice game will be available this fall for $49.95 MSRP. HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising is the third Harry Potter-themed game from The OP this year. The game is preceded by SCRABBLE®: World of Harry Potter, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle – Defence Against the Dark Arts, which both launched earlier this year.

It'll be interesting to see if there are any new mechanics from Thanos Rising or if it's a straight re-skin.

I quite enjoyed Thanos Rising, but unfortunately I feel like this would have to be very unique from T.R. for me to purchase it.

Its more than just Harry Potter added to Thanos Rising. We have put some pretty thematic mechanics into the game. We will have more to show off at Gen Con!
