Expelliarmus! Expansions and Gameplay

Does having more playable characters and card options make the game easier or harder? Our journey begins with the almighty question: are the expansions worth our Galleons?


The Monster Box of Monsters

Warning: it’s harder than a blast-ended skrewt! The monsters in this expansion are no joke. Mix this with the charm expansion and we’ve got ourselves a battle so intense, it would make Neville’s grandmother cringe.

The Charms & Potions Expansion

It might give a headache worse than a Gringotts encounter, but potions and charm do add a little extra umph to the game. Don’t sleep on Neville’s healing abilities, though – they’re lifesavers on this magical journey!

When faced with the choice between the two, it’s essential to consider your priorities. Do you long for adventure and challenging battles, or are you merely looking to up your odds? Make your decision wisely, my friends!

“Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more: believing in yourself.”—Harry Potter, Year Five

A well-rounded team is vital, but not a well-rounded deck. So, split the market cards based on their cost and dedicate your character to particular card types: spells, allies, and items.

The starting villains can make or break your game in the later years. If the initial batch is too powerful, consider reshuffling and starting again. The balance between good and evil must be maintained, after all.

Lumos! House Rules to Guide You Through the Dark

When standard gameplay just isn’t hitting the spot, house rules might be what you need to conquer the game. Here are a few ideas from real players:

  • Ignore the 2nd dark arts action on locations.
  • Separate the monsters into two difficulty levels to make the game a little more manageable.
  • Shuffle the enemy deck to have enemies come in movie order to make gameplay more balanced.

But remember, these are only suggestions. Feel free to adapt and create your own house rules to suit your gameplay style.

Mischief Managed!

While the expansions don’t necessarily make the game easier, they do add new dimensions and challenges to our magical journey. In the end, perseverance, teamwork, and house rules well-executed shall lead us to victory—or at least to the next year.

Perhaps it’s time to delve even deeper into the world of Hogwarts, explore more complex strategies and create your own house rules as the game evolves. After all, as Dumbledore once said, “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
