What is the Pottermore game and where can I play this?

  • 6
    I thought "Pottermore" was the old name for JKR's website now called "Wizarding World." If you're sure there's a game by this name, where did you hear about it and what do you know about it?

  • maybe the Patronus picker and House Sorting would be the closest thing I could think of on Pottermore that could be considered games

    The first Pottermore had some more gaming elements that were not present in its subsequent versions (finding hidden objects in the images, making potions, duelling). I'm quite sure there is a question asking for the differences between the old and new Pottermore.

Pottermore was the precursor to what is now Wizarding World. It was, like its successor, an online resource for all things related to Harry Potter.

It was launched in early 2012 and was replaced by Wizarding World in 2019. Most of the content was migrated there.

J.K. Rowling occasionally posted original materials, supplemental to the books and films.
