Harry Potter Party Games


Guess the flavor!

......................................................................................


Objective: Guess the flavor of jelly beans! 

Items Needed for your Harry Potter Party Games, Guess the Flavor: Harry Potter Bertie Botts Every Flavor Jelly Beans. We do suggest getting a few packs so that there are enough for each guest. You will also need paper and pen for each player. 

Harry Potter-Bertie Botts Flavored Beans Game

Game Play: Give each guest a piece of paper and pen. Have them number the paper 1-10 (or however many rounds you would like the game to be).

Have the host go to the first player and give them ONE jelly bean. The player must then put the jelly bean in their mouth and write down what flavor they think that it is. Once the player has written down their answer the host may look at the paper and tell the player if they are correct or wrong by looking at the back of the package for the answer. DO NOT SAY THE ANSWER OUT LOUD and DO NOT LET THE PLAYER SEE THE ANSWERS! Remember there is more than one round & you do not want to give away answers to other players! Then the host moves to the next player and so on until all rounds have been played. The winner is the player with the most correct answers. 

Want to make it a little more difficult? The player who's turn it currently is must not say ANYTHING about the taste of the jelly bean GOOD OR BAD or they are automatically OUT of the game! 

With weird flavors such as vomit, booger, and dirt it will be harder than you think! 

Another great way to play:

Please note: For this type of play you would need to purchase more packages of jelly beans to ensure enough of each flavor per guest/player. 

Before guests arrive separate the jelly beans by color/flavor into separate bowls. When game play begins give each guest the pen and paper. The twist, instead of going player by player give EACH guest a jelly bean of the same color/flavor and have them all try it at once and write down their answer. After everyone has written down their choice then the host reveals the correct answer. The one with the most answers at the end wins! 


The Chamber of Secrets! 

The monster is loose! 

......................................................................................

Objective: Avoid being Petrified! 

Items Needed for Harry Potter Party Games, The Chamber of Secrets: Guests, large playing area and imagination! Think Freeze Tag with a twist!

Game Play: Pick a Monster! They will be the tagger. No volunteers? Have kids draw straws or pick numbers. Or you could even have one of the adults at the party play the Monster that has escaped the Chamber! Once game play begins the Monster will chase the Wizards and Witches trying to tag them. If the Monster tags the player then they become "Petrified" and must freeze in place. They may only be set free (un-petrified) by another player who is free. Once a player has become "Petrified" three times they are out of the game. The last Wizard or Witch left at the end of the game is the winner and has defeated the Monster!
