Row M have added to their coverage from the International Toy Fair taking place in New York to include some pictures of props from the first three Harry Potter movies: Hedwig’s cage, the sign from the Quality Quidditch Supplies shop and the flying Ford Anglia.
But the item that many Potter fans should want to know about is the Harry Potter Scene It? game that will be released on September 1 ($39.99) giving fans a look at some scenes from the new movie months before it’s released in the theaters.
As with other games in the Scene It? series, the Harry Potter version asks players to answer DVD-based trivia questions, name actors, and identify locations from movie stills as quickly as possible. Sample questions we encountered included "How many players are on a Quidditch team?" (seven) and set-identification for Honeydukes (from assorted photos of the vivid mint-and-white candy shop) and Diagon Alley (from pictures of owls, Quidditch supplies, and the Ollivander's storefront). Each correctly-answered question allows a player to advance around the game board. The questions are specific, but not so difficult that casual fans can't answer them, while the game's speed-oriented nature makes for exciting gameplay between the most studious movie-watchers.
