Storyline[edit]

The Source of All Evil is the dominant power of evil in the Charmed universe. It strives to install its reign of terror over the world by leading hoards of demons in its attempt to enslave humanity. Only one obstacle blocks its path: it must eliminate the Charmed Ones and take hold of their powers.

Piper, Phoebe and Paige must once again vanquish the forces of evil to overcome the Source.

It is based on the storylines of the first half of the fourth season in that it takes place after the death of Prue Halliwell and sees the Charmed Ones, along with Cole Turner, fighting against The Source.

Charmed: The Power of Three is the third official board game for the television series Charmed to be released. It was developed by Fox Consumer Products and the French company Tilsit Editions, and was published in 2005 by Tilsit and Fox around the world, but primarily in France where it is known as Charmed: Le Pouvoir des Trois.[4] The game is based on the second-half of the fourth season of the television series, and features publicity photographs for the fourth season on the game and the cover box.

Storyline[edit]

The Charmed Ones are gifted with the Power of Three, a force which makes them unstoppable in their crusade against evil. However, the leading forces of the Underworld, all three of which have at some point become The Source, frequently attempt to steal the Power of Three from the Halliwells to prevent themselves from being vanquished.

Gameplay[edit]

The players strive to obtain the coveted Power of Three. Each player is one of the characters from Charmed, either one of the three Charmed Ones (Piper, Phoebe or Paige), or one of the three leaders of the Underworld (The Source, Cole Turner or The Seer). The players act in teams, using the unique powers of their characters to overcome their adversaries.[5]

Canonical issues[edit]

This board game slightly breaks from the established canon of the Charmed universe in that Cole Turner is working with both The Source and The Seer. In season four, after the introduction of Paige as an active Charmed One, Cole only reverted to being evil after the first on-screen Source (the "half-faced" Source) was vanquished by the Halliwells.
