1. Make the hoops
First you have to make the hoops. I made mine with hangers and yellow duct tape. Make sure you make them various sizes!
2. Make some Butter Beer!
Then you have to make some butter beer. Here was my recipe:
7 parts Root beer or Cream Soda
1 part butterscotch schnapps
1 part vanilla vodka (for an extra kick!)

3. Split into houses
Use the sorting hat to see what Houses play and what team goes first!
4. How to score
If the quaffle (ping pong ball) goes through a hoop and makes it in the cup it counts as two (much like if the ball were to bounce)
5. Don’t forget about bludgers!
If the quaffle goes through a hoop the enemy team is allowed to use there bludgers (hands) to knock it out of the way. You could always add some rolled up paper balls and toss them at the thrower too.
6. The Snitch
When there is one cup left, the snitch must be used. Trust me, this makes things a lot more difficult. I made my snitch by just wrapping a ball in yellow duct tape and attaching a few wings made out of paper, but you could easily use a yellow ping pong ball with glued on wings.
