1, 2, 3… Stupefy !
It is so simple, you can learn the rules to Stupefy just by playing. Combat occurs over 8 identical rounds.
- PIck your spell.
- Point your wand at any opponent, at the same time as all other players.
- Cast your spell, at the same time as all other players. Then resolve the spell effects.
- Unharmed players get rewards from the center of the table and drop them into their House’s box.
Spells and rewards
Spells are represented by cards that players receive at the beginning of the game. There are Stupefy! cards as well as Misspell cards (it happens to the best of us). Be careful, you begin with a limited number of Stupefy cards and must balance your Misspells to become your professor’s favorite, collect potions, or even point cards. Avoid being Stupefied by your opponents along the way, otherwise you will be known as the latecomer (penalty) of your House and miss the chance to gain extra rewards. After 8 rounds, once all the rewards have been claimed, the House with the highest score wins!
Each round is tense! You will have to observe your opponents’ choices (have they used all their Stupefy! cards?), pick whether to protect yourself, attack, or claim all the rewards… And you have to decide fast, in the heat of the moment!
