Wanna know what J.K. Rowling has up her sleeve with Pottermore?

06.22.2011

The Guardian has spilled the beans a day early on sharing the secret of what Pottermore really is. Author J.K. Rowling will have a press conference tomorrow morning in London to give everyone the lowdown.

But it's really not such a huge deal that I can't tell you now. If you'd rather wait til tomorrow, then go ahead and move on to another article. Some people still like surprises.

Pottermore is...(seriously, stop reading now if you don't want to know)

....

...

It's an online game!

I know a few of you already speculated this. One user even mentioned that The Guardian had their suspicions that it was a game as well. The paper got wind of the project when a memo was leaked to them--accident or on purpose? They aren't sure.

Here's the details they do have about the game: "The new project is reportedly an online game that gives users clues which will lead them to prizes hidden in the real world. Aspiring wizards the world over can hope to find an undisclosed number of magic wands stashed throughout the U.K. and U.S., and possibly other countries. It is not yet clear if the treasure hunt is Pottermore itself or a marketing drive for another product, and details about the game remain hazy." Rowling will fill in the gaps tomorrow.

Sounds pretty cool. It'll be more than just giving clues though.

Would love a book of his parents that leads up from their time at Hogwarts to obviously when Harry is born and they die.

Not a Potter fan but this sounds neat for those who have the time/energy to invest in it. It's like Willy Wonka with the golden tickets... but more in-depth (albeit with less Gene Wilder and Sammy Davis Jr.)

We don't need another game! Then again I was never really a hardcore Potter fan. I'll be sticking to Texas Hold'em...

Although I often have one hand on my wand while surfing the web, this just ain't for me.

If they make the game with as much creativity and skill as the books and the films, it could be awesome...
