Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out today. Alas, I am in Turkey (I posted this in the past – with my Time Turner!), so I won’t be able to see it for another couple of weeks. Don’t tell me how it ends!

Unfortunately, the Maurader's Map can't help you find everything on the list.

In honor of the film’s release, I’ve put together this Harry Potter-inspired scavenger hunt list. Feel free to adapt it to your own purposes.

  1. Take a picture of a cat (5 points), rat (10 points), toad (15 points), or owl (20 points)
  2. Pretend to fly on a broomstick (10 points) (extra points for real flying)
  3. Take a picture of a team member wearing a Gryffindor scarf (10 points), dress robes (25 points), or an invisibility cloak (50 points)
  4. Make some butterbeer or firewhiskey (30 points)
  5. Find an acid green pen a la Rita Skeeter (10 points)
  6. Find a sock (to free a house elf) (5 points)
  7. Make a potion like Veritaserum, Felix Felicis, or Polyjuice (15 points)
  8. Take a picture of a Muggle doing something Muggle-like (5 points)
  9. Take a picture of a family of redheads (15 points)
  10. Apply a lightning shaped temporary tattoo to a team member’s forehead (15 points)
  11. Capture the Golden Snitch (150 points and the game ends)

The Prize? Bernie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, of course.
