Take on the Forbidden Forest, uncover rare artefacts, overcome hidden obstacles and work with your Clubmates in this new Club Challenge from Zynga’s magical Match-3 mobile game, Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells.

This exciting update (which happens to be the biggest content update from Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells to-date) is a new, recurring, limited-time event series that invites you and your Club to take on a brand-new interactive map – packed full of rewards, hidden obstacles and special encounters.

Clubs is a fantastic social feature of the Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells game, where players work with their Clubmates to unlock bigger rewards and earn points and trophies for their Club.

For the first ever Club Challenge, you and your fellow Clubmates will collaborate to conquer the interactive map, as you leave the (relative) safety of Hogwarts to explore the eerie Forbidden Forest. Here you will navigate your way through obstacles, tackling new levels and discovering revered wizarding world Artefacts, such as the House Cup and the Sword of Gryffindor, before facing the final puzzle.


The fantastic final showdown features some of the scariest and most dangerous creatures that inhabit the Forbidden Forest. With mountain trolls, a Hungarian Horntail and even Aragog himself (sorry Ron) to face, you and your Club will need to work together to figure out how to defeat these monstruous foes.

Following this first foray into the Forbidden Forest, a new Club Challenge event period will start next week, running over a period of roughly three weeks and offering its own exclusive points, rewards and ‘lives’ system – separate to the main game. Every day, you and your Clubmates will receive three daily ‘lives’ to help you progress through the Forest. You will receive points for every challenge you complete, and encounter pitfalls and rewards as you work to push your Club up the league rankings.


Not only do you get to navigate your way through thrilling puzzles in the spooky Forbidden Forest, but you also get to do this while surrounded by the music, voiceovers and characters from the original Harry Potter films.

So, immerse yourself in this mobile game full of recognisable wizarding world features – from Winged Keys to Chocolate Frogs, and see if you and your Clubmates can take on the Forbidden Forest and emerge victorious.

Harry Potter: Puzzles and Spells is developed by Zynga and published under Portkey Games, the games label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video game experiences, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories, which put the player at the centre of their own adventure.
