Introducing Choose Wisely ~ A harry Potter, Bertie Botts Beans game.

I made this for Pinkleo in the OAHPT swap and adore it.  It all started out with the idea to make a dice that looks like a little jelly bean and the game grew and grew and grew from there.  

Opening the box to see all the treasures.  My DH custom made the insert for me to fit.  Loves him. (Plus he got to buy a new special tool to make it, so that made this game very exciting to create for him too!)


Closed Box, hand stained, hand painted design.  I love the little Weasley's logo at the bottom too.


I wanted the rules to be like their own version of the Marauders Map with folds coming out all sides, so that sparked these.


All the pieces


In the game, sometimes you have to eat a jelly bean, where half the beans are terrible flavors, half are good but they look the same color.  These coins tell which color you have to eat.  Next to a mini rule card, just to mention flavors.  The four double colored pieces are "House" coins that you have to eat two jelly beans!  So choose wisely!  hehe.  


Coins come in this velvety bag.  I actually created a stamp and used it for the velvet.  I was so dang excited when it turned out too.


Container of the every flavor beans.  Even etched bertie botts on it.



Some making of pics.  DH even used his computer program to model out the box before we made it, lol.  Told you he was into it too!
     

I'm so happy Pinks loves it and I'm already planning on making myself one!  However I know my DH won't play with me, lol.

Thanks for looking everyone!  Have a great day.  Grin

i'd love to have the rules for this, for a Harry potter party I am working on for my nieces and nephews ( and DH's little sis too) as we are working on building up some games, some crafts, and all sorts of funky potter themed foods and such Smiley
