The Op Unveils Harry Potter & Nightmare Before Christmas Board Games

The Op announced two new board games this week as they have new titles for both The Nightmare Before Christmas and Harry Potter. As we approach the holiday season, both of these will offer a little something different for fans of both franchises that have to do with the season, both of which incorporate frantic dice mechanics as part of the gameplay. The Nightmare Before Christmas: Merry Madness will put you in a race to deliver toys during Christmas with the residents of Halloween Town trying to help Jack out, while Harry Potter: Mischief In Diagon Alley will have you shopping with the usual gang from Hogwarts with mixed up lists. You can read about both games below as they are available right now.
