How Many? How Old?
Department of Magic is designed to be played by groups of between 2 and 6 people. However, if you're part of a bigger group, we regularly book both our games so your teams can compete against each other! Whilst we design the game to be as accessible as we can, the nature of the experience means that children under the age of 10 may find some of the puzzles difficult.
