Harry Potter CLUE game giveaway (2 winners)

I remember playing the game: Clue, when I was younger. I loved the mystery of the game, and the suspense of finding out who did the crime, where, and with what? I was recently sent the game Clue: Harry Potter edition. I personally, am not a big Harry Potter fan, but my son enjoys it. However, the Clue game is really fun to play, I must say! Here is a recap of the game:
A student has vanished from the school, and it is up to the players, taking on the roles of Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Luna or Neville, to race through the halls of Hogwarts to discover who did it, what spell or magical item was used and where the student was attacked. Was it Draco Malfoy with a Sleeping Draught in the Owlery? Or maybe it was Dolores Umbridge with the Vanishing Cabinet in the Great Hall. From the Potions classroom to the Room of Requirement, players can equip themselves with spells and magic items as they face unexpected challenges and race to avoid the fear-inducing sign of He Who Must Not Be Named, or Lord Voldemort (to the brave), the Dark Mark!
I thought it was neat how the board was set up, much like the traditional Clue, with the 8 rooms and select doors to enter them. There is a twist to the Harry Potter edition, you have to spin one of the 4 dials located on each corner of the board. This can change some things for you depending on if you are in a certain room or hallway. Be on the lookout! If a Dark Mark appears, the players must draw a "Dark" card, and must follow what it says. You also get opportunities to draw "Help" cards during the game that can save you from some dark force or be your ally in time of need. 40 house point tokens are used in the game as your "money." It is important not to run out, or you will be out of the game. However, those still in the game can still ask you questions that you must answer.
Just like the traditional clue, each player has to unravel the mystery of who did the crime by selection of asking questions to the player on the left. You always have to ask the player on your left, and if they don't have a card you are looking for, the question moves to the next player until someone can give you a clue.
3 to 5 players can play this game, and it is suited best for ages 9 and up. ERP: $26.99
Overall, I think this game is a lot of fun, and it was pretty easy to learn the tricks of the game.

Would you like a chance to win this game? Hasbro has offered to sponsor a giveaway for two of my readers to win! This contest is open to bloggers and non-bloggers in the United States.

We really enjoy playing Blokus with our two children. When I was young I really enjoyed a game called Bonkers! I don't think they make it anymore, but it was a board game where you put down tiles in different spaces and had to do what the tiles said. The tagline of the game was "never the same game twice." Very fun.
