Card game for 2 or more players.
Based on the Harry Potter Universe.

“Harry Potter” is a licensed, copyrighted, trademarked property.
This is merely a fan site.

The player with the most House points at the end of the game is the winner.
The game ends when all Challenge cards have been overcome.
For a shorter game cut the Challenge deck and use only part of it.

There are 2 decks: the Common deck and the Challenge deck.
Each deck contains one copy of each card on its respective card list.

A 10 sided die is needed.

All common cards are either permanent or temporal.
Temporal cards are discarded when played.
Permanent cards stay in play from turn to turn.
Temporal cards include most Spells, Professors, Ghosts, Familiars, Events and Items.
Permanent cards include Students and some others.

Challenge cards will have one or more traits:
Monster, Wizard, Stealth, Mystery, Voldemort, Quidditch

Each player begins with 3 cards in play: Harry, Hermione, and Ron.
(From the Starting Character card list)
The youngest player goes first.

Players take turns.
Each turn has 6 phases:
1. Time Phase
2. Draw Phase
3. Recruit Phase
4. Magic Phase
5. Challenge Phase
6. Action Phase

Remove one wound or detention counter from any student card that has one. 
A student card with any wound or detention counters is considered to be inactive.

Draw 2 cards from the Common deck.
Max hand size is 7 cards. 
Discard excess cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.

You may put any permanent type cards in your hand into play.
Attach permanent items & familiars to specific students.

Certain common cards are used/played in this phase.

Put the top card of the Challenge deck onto the middle of the table face-up.
Skip this phase if there is already 3+ Challenge cards face up.

You may attempt to overcome any one Face-up Challenge card.
To attempt, at least one of your main characters must be active.
If there is Challenge worth zero House points available, you must choose it. 
Roll 1D10. This is the Challenge roll.
Add bonuses to the roll from any active cards you have in play.
You may play (discard) Temporal cards for additional bonuses. 
Your opponent may play certain Temporal cards to decrease your roll.
If your roll is equal to or greater than the Difficulty level of the Challenge 
card, you overcome the challenge and get to put it in your Victory pile. 
If you fail, put 3 detention or 3 wound counters (the Challenge 
Card will say which) on one of your active student cards.
A student card with any wound or detention counters is considered to be inactive.
