Parties can be downright magical, and now that some enterprising young entrepreneur has combined their favorite drinking game with the world of Harry Potter, it’s about to get even more so. When you take something like beer pong (or any kind of liquid that one consumes because come on, kids want to play this too), and you mash it together with Quidditch, good times are bound to soar.
The Quidditch set from the Unofficial Quidditch Pong page includes three golden hoops to put between your sets of cups, two beaters and one golden snitch. You are supposed to arrange your cups of preferred beverage on either side of the hoops and then toss the golden snitch through the hoops and into the cups. If you make the cup, the opposing witches and/or wizards have to drink its contents. The website also comes with a pretty comprehensive set of spells that you can say to throw off and deflect the other team. Make sure you do your studying before you launch into your first game.
As a grownup, I can see this being absolutely hilarious to play with alcohol, but since we want to make sure the kids can play too, I also suggest you make up some type of Hi-C potion with sugar on the rims of the cups and place bets between the parties of parents. Whoever’s kids “win”, the parents “win” too because their children will hopefully not have quite the same level of crazy sugar high as the other kids. You definitely will be keeping the game interesting for yourself and the kids will have a ball. You should probably also give the kids spells to perform while making this potion for authenticity’s sake.
