Wizard Skittles

A game of Wizard Skittles

Wizard Skittles is a wizarding sport or mini-game same as the Exploding Snap, Gobstones and the Wizard's Chess. The goal of the game is to knock down as many pins as possible with your skittles, which look like small circular disks. The game originated from an old European lawn game that played similarly. Pins were set up at one end and each player rolled their skittles across the ground with the intent to knock down as many skittles as possible. Bowling was created off of this game. 

A tournament for this game was held at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the 1996–1997 school year where several students participated.[1]
