Harry Potter - Wizards of the Coast Arrives 3rd Quarter of 2001
Wizards of the Coast had a small room in the basement
of the Hasbro building. I don't know why Hasbro is hiding the
good stuff in the basement, and had so much lame stuff
upstairs. Oh well ... we found it ... And I'm guessing this
will be huge ...
Here is a look at the display of the Starter
Decks. The Harry Potter Trading Card game is based on the
first nove. (Remember WOTC only has rights to the first book
Here is a closer look at the Two Player Starter
Decks. You will see that the Harry Potter Potter Formula is
trying to follow the successful formula of Pokemon with Starters,
Theme Decks, & Boosters.
The starter sets have the basic rules and two 40 card decks, and
The overall Display for Harry Potter Theme Decks.
Each player plays a Wizard at Hogwarts who can cast spells and
use Magical Creatures when playing the game. Each card is
fully illustrated with new art, which captures favorite characters,
potions and spells, creatures, and situations from the novel.
The first person to make his or her opponent's cards
"disappear" wins the game.
Here's a closer look at the Harry Potter Theme
Decks: "Spellcaster" & "Restrike"
Theme Decks will have 61 cards each, damage counters, and one
premium Wizard card.
A display for Harry Potter Booster Packs. A total
of 118 cards will be in this set. Boosters will have 11 cards
Here is a look at the layout for the Harry Potter
Trading card game.
Here is a closer look at the back of the
Harry Potter Trading cards. One thing I thought that was
different was that the Lightning Bolt on Harry's Forehead is going
sideways? This is different from the book cover! WOTC reps
stated that the U.S. Book covers are wrong, and that the bolt is
supposed to be sideways. .... Interesting...
Thanks to Wizards of the Coast for the great tour!
