Further notes:

This game is similar in style and principle to Cluedo.
In this version of the game, the characters are Harry Potter, Goyle, Crabbe, Draco Malfoy, Hermoine Granger, and Ron Weasley.
Rather than weapons as used in Cluedo, there are six spells available which are forgetfulness potion, sleeping potion, wingardium leviosa, locomotor mortis, petrificus totalus, and alohomora.
The rooms (classrooms, halls) are flying class, filch’s office, dark arts class, transfiguration class, potions class, the library, history of magic class, herbology class and the Great Hall.One each of the characters, spells and rooms cards are secretly placed inside ‘fluffy’s folder’ and players each aim to be the first to identify them by process of elimination.
This identical game was also produced in the same year in the US with the title ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone- Mystery at Hogwarts’.
In 2001, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone-Mystery at Hogwarts was re-issued in the UK but with some differences in game play and contents.
