Harry Potter Lex-GO! word game {review}

I’m a huge fan of word games. I have my own two children and also work in a Secondary School, so I’m always on the look out for a game which is both fun and educational. We have quite a few letter based games and we often get them out of home, as I love to encourage my own children with their home learning.

We recently received the special Harry Potter Edition of Lex-Go! to try out at home. This is based on the classic word game Lexicon and the popular Lex-Go! which uses letter tiles instead of letter cards. Harry Potter fans will love this twist on the original version!

The idea of the game is that you race against other players to get rid of all your playing tiles by creating words, swapping letters and even attacking other players’ words. It’s quite a simple concept but like most games takes a while to master. Lex-Go! is great fun for any age, and can be played by the whole family.

In this special Harry Potter Edition of Lex-Go!, there are special spell tiles to increase your chances of winning:

  • EXPELLIARMUS tile allows a player to mess up another player’s tiles

  • DEPULSO tile allows a player to banish one of their tiles from the round if they need to

  • REVELIO tile allows a player to look at any number of tiles in the draw pile before choosing which to swap

  • STUPEFY tile allows a player to freeze another player out the game for 10 seconds

In this special Harry Potter Edition there is also a ‘POLYJUICE POTION‘ tile which can be any letter.

If you spell the word ‘SNITCH‘ you instantly win the round.

    I have not seen this game before, but it certainly sounds interesting and different and it would be fun to play.

    Ooooo this looks like a HP fans dream game!
    Also a great alternative to Scrabble.
    I love the funky packaging too,
