CARLSBAD, Calif. – June 25, 2019 – USAopoly® (The OP) today announced their latest Wizarding World-themed creation: HARRY POTTER™: Death Eaters™ Rising.

HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising captures the difficulties and terrors Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger faced during their fifth year at Hogwarts as they scramble to persuade the wizarding world of Voldemort’s return,” said Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly. “Just as setbacks and devastation befell Harry and his friends during their journey, players can expect an equally challenging path to success in Death Eaters Rising that makes victory much more rewarding.”

In HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising, each player must assemble teams of witches and wizards from the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore’s Army and Hogwarts to fight against the growing threat of the Dark Lord. Starting with either Harry Potter or Hermione Granger™ representing Dumbledore’s Army, Minerva McGonagall™ or Albus Dumbledore™ from Hogwarts™, or Nymphadora Tonks™ or Sirius Black™ from the Order of the Phoenix, players will be able to rally a variety of year-5 characters to their cause. These include fan-favorite characters, Ginny Weasley™, Luna Lovegood™, Alastor Moody, Mrs. Norris, Severus Snape™ and Rubeus Hagrid™. The collective armies and players must then work together to stop the spread of dark influence throughout the wizarding world.

Players will have to battle Dark Wizards Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucius Malfoy and others that bear the dark mark for control of key wizarding world locations, including the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade Village. To be successful, players must vanquish Voldermort’s Death Eaters and eventually defeat You-Know-Who before they corrupt and take control the wizarding world.

HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising is designed for 2-4 players ages 11 and up, with an estimated runtime of 45-60 minutes. The cooperative card and dice game will be available this fall for $49.95 MSRP. HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising is the third Harry Potter-themed game from The OP this year.
