Abracada…What? is a family game of deduction and spell casting… But watch out! Say the wrong magic words too many times and the only thing you’ll be spelling is trouble!

In Harry Potter, we all know that saying a spell wrong means disaster. The case is just similar in Abracada…What?, a deduction and memory race in which players take on the roles of witches and wizards who compete to reach the top of a magic tower. When it starts, each player has 5 spellstone tiles in front of them, but the trick is that the faces of these tiles are facing the opponents, i.e. not visible to the owner. A number on each tile marks the total amount of copies of that type of spell. On a turn, player attempts to cast a spell from his or her own set of tiles; if successful, the special effect of the named tile will take place, otherwise the player loses 1 life. Since some tiles are kept invisible from everyone, it really takes careful calculation and a bit of luck to avoid “Avada Kedavra”.

Abracada…What? plays 2 to 5 players in about 30 minutes. It is expected to be released in Q2 2015, with an MSRP of $34.99.
