I made this for Ruby Copperhead in the recent Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Swap.  I've had this idea in my head almost since last round.  I was so lucky to be given a partner willing to indulge my personal agenda!

I wanted to recreate different places within the Harry Potter universe that the players would travel through as they played the game.  Here's an overview of the entire board and the game pieces and cards:


And some detail shots...Privet Drive (and the start of the game path):


Hogwarts Express and Platform 9 3/4:


Hogwarts Castle:


Diagon Alley:


Dragon and fire:


The Burrow & Garden (my personal fave):


Hosgmeade & The Shrieking Shack:


The Forbidden Forest:


The Quidditch Pitch:


Shell Cottage:


A shot of the Player and Challenge Cards:


I put the Marauder's Map on the back side of the game board:


And designed the whole thing to fold up and be carried around for portability:


Ruby Copperhead says her family has played the game at least three times already!  I'm so glad it went to such a loving home  Grin

OK...I'm emailing the Player Card files and the Challenge Card files to the mods to see if I can get them attached to this post for anyone interested in playing.  The cards are now attached!!!  Thanks so much!!!

Feel free to PM me with any questions!

I also have the cards in German (if anyone wants them) thanks to Ruby Copperhead's awesome translating skills, so PM me if you want them in German (for whatever reason).

Thanks so much for looking!!  Check out the rest of the HP awesomeness in the Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Swap Gallery...you won't be sorry!

This is amazing!! If I had one, I would hang it up on my wall as a wallhanging when I'm not actually using it as a gameboard. Again, this is amazing!
