Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the latest AR game from Niantic capturing mobile gaming audiences worldwide. We thought any interest in adventure AR apps fizzled out with Pokémon Go, but this game is proving us wrong. In 15 hours it became the No. 1 free download from the U.S. Apple App Store, and in 24 hours it racked up 400,000 players, according to SensorTower.

As a Harry Potter fan AND former Pokémon Go-er, I was stoked for the chance to play during work hours. After one day of spellcasting in New York City’s Midtown area, I not only got a hang of the game, but made some observations that make for more successful experience, too. These are some things I wish I knew before I started playing.
