Harry Potter Guess Who Game

I absolutely love Harry Potter games! Admittedly, I own three totes full of old and new Harry Potter games. This past week I saw a viral video that showed a person creating a Harry Potter Guess Who game and I immediately geeked out and ordered a Guess Who board to try this myself!

The Harry Potter Guess Who game took a few hours to build. Most of time I spent was on creating the printables to use for the players and cards. Let me tell you, my Ravenclaw brain went into overdrive here. I created an excel spreadsheet of possible elimination questions so that the players I used couldn’t be immediately eliminated.

I’ve decided to make my Harry Potter Guess Who game printables available on Etsy. Your purchase will go towards craft supplies so I can keep putting out Harry Potter craft tutorials and recipe videos for you all!

On that note, I wanted to let you all know that there will be a schedule change starting this month. Instead of putting out four crafts a month, I’m going to be putting out two. This will help allow me to make you guys more intricate and quality Harry Potter crafts. Every other Monday I’m going to start posting about other various things from the Wizarding World, like cosplay suggestions, tips for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a sightseeing guide to London, and tons of other Harry Potter goodies!

…But I digress. Shall we get started on the Harry Potter Guess Who game?!

What are the large cards for? When I play Guess Who it is an elimination game/

The larger cards are what each player draws at the beginning. You are trying to eliminate all of your characters off of your board to guess which large card your opponent drew.

I purchased the print out, this looks awesome!
Can you just used acrylic paint?

simplypotter July 2, 2017 - 9:08 PM

Sorry for the delay- I’ve been on the road and doing event coverage!

You can totally use acrylic paint, just be sure to use a paint sealer!

OMG I need that so much!!! Are you going to sell them? Because if you are I’m so buying it

simplypotter January 2, 2018 - 3:09 PM

I decided not to sell them. They’re pretty easy to make if you’re feeling crafty, though! 🙂

Will the cheaper guess who on amazon fit the pieces as well? It says “Guess Who classic game”

simplypotter February 7, 2018 - 10:40 PM

I only know for certain that it’ll fit the one I linked to since that’s what I sized mine for.

Jill November 29, 2018 - 7:03 PM

Can the pictures be edited so each character’s name is on the card?

Unfortunately no 🙁
