What's Your Favourite Broom Game?

Post by Janne Halla »

Despite Quidditch being the most popular wizarding sport in the Harry Potter universe, that doesn't mean it's the only one.

While I quite like the idea of Quidditch, I find sports like Quodpot, Creaothceann, and Aingingein a little more interesting. Mostly because there are things that explode and/or on fire. It could be argued that they're more dangerous, so I don't know what that says about me. :lol:

Likewise, we have more broom games on HOL than just HOL Quidditch. A lot of those are played during pick-ups, friendlier types of the games where anyone can join and play, no matter their staff position, house, year, or skill.

While I enjoy the Quaffle portion of HOL Quidditch, I most enjoy playing Creaothceann as it speaks to my magpie-collecting tendencies and it gives me a chance to take a break if I catch a boulder in my cauldron.

What's your favourite broom game? Either in the Harry Potter universe or on HOL? Why?

Broom racing has to be my most favourite broom game. Especially if it involves more than 6 competitors, and has multiple hurdles, or checkpoints that must be completed along the way instead of just reaching the finish line the earliest.
