Average Rating: 2.48 (based on 6 reviews) 
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


If you were only allowed one action per turn, while your opponent gets two, how often do you think you'd win the game? Loss of an action is a very debilitating game effect. Any opponent that is faced with this should try to immediately solve it or discard it in some way. The problem, for your opponent, is they need to have five cards in hand to solve. If you have emptied their hand with discard effects, such as Purple Firecrackers, then solving won't be an initial option. If you have a Garden Gnome in play, then your opponent is suddenly in trouble, as it strips away one card from their hand every turn. Even if you don't have a Gnome out, their ability to draw out of this adventure is severely hampered by having less actions because of the adventure itself. Yes, this can be a nasty little card. That's why you aren't allowed to play it until you have 5 lessons on the table. I still like it, though.

Rating: 3.5


It's ok, once you get 5 lessons, they get 1 action...They have to discard 5 cards too, but it does 5 damage to you. Hagrid Needs Help has the same effect, but they have to discard 8 cards and get to draw 3. So, this card is for the people who don't have Hagrid Needs Help...;)

Rating: 3


Hagrid Needs Help is way better than this card because you can lay it down first turn and they have to take eight damage (elven if they draw) to solve which knocks out about a 1/5 of their cards in their library which is good for you. This card is to slow and the effects just aren’t as good.

We were caught on one of our missions. Penalty: Lost 5 points from Gryffindor and we take 5 damage. 5 lessons in play is quite a bit for one action each of your opponents turn. 5 lessons from your opponents hand isn't that much, even though only one action is. 5 damage to you is definately not good. This card really stinks becuase of the high casting cost. Go with Hagrid Needs Help instead!!!

Rating: 2


Again, lesson requirements aren't cool, but eh. Action denial is awesome, and if you can combine that with hand denial, you'll keep this going for a long while. The ugly part is you taking 5 damage when they solve it. Not quite as good as HNH, but not as rare either.

Action depriving adventures are good! good i tell you! Now.... you're options are.... Hagrid Needs Help, Locked in, or 5 Points. The reason these are so good is that even if they are discarded via McGonagall, they still lose the action and next time they have to solve. I think my personal favorite is Locked in. Hagrid Needs Help does the most damage, but they also get card advantage. Of course, some decks want your opponent to draw cards and some decks just want damage. But overall, Locked in gives more room for combos and makes the player think more about solving. Now the good thing about 5 Points is that they have to discard even more cards from hand.

AND they don't get to refill their hand. BUT, and that is a big but..... you take 5 damage. Think twice about playing this card too freely, those 5 Points can add up and your opponent may win the House Cup. But, if you can keep your opponent's hand in check and do a good job of it, this adventure can be very effective.

Rating: 3.2



This is like a bad hagrid needs help but i guess i could See it being played in a deck that wants to force its op's to only one action a turn.... but besides that i would just play Hagrid Needs Help.
