Harry Potter fans are going to want to crack open a few
butterbeers and grab some ping pong balls — this Quidditch
Pong set looks totally awesome.
The unofficial Quidditch Pong set includes three golden
hoops, two beater bats, and one golden snitch. The hoops
are set up in the middle of the table. Like traditional pong, if a
shot lands in a cup, that cup is taken off the table. But if a
player makes a shot through one of the hoops, it's
worth two cups.
Watch out though, shots through the hoops can be deflected
by the designated team beater, who yields the beater bat.
Teams are named after Hogwarts houses and each team gets
a specific set of spells to use throughout the game.
For example, Slytherins can yell "Crucio" and everybody on
the other team must make trick shots for the next round.
The Potter-themed game is so popular it's already sold out
twice online. New shipments are due in this month.
