  • 1269: The Golden Snidget is introduced as part of the game of Quidditch. At a Quidditch match, Barberus Bragge, Chief of the Wizards' Council, released a Golden Snidget and offered one-hundred and fifty Galleons to whichever player caught it. This proved so popular that a new position was added to Quidditch teams, the "Hunter", whose sole task was to catch a Golden Snidget released onto the pitch during the game.[1]
