Will we ever stop talking about Harry Potter party games? No, we won’t, and we know you love it when we do! As a Potterhead myself, who has watched all movies & read all novels, the HP drinking game has been the best way to remember the series and find another reason to watch them all over again. These drinking rules emanate from the bottom of my heart…

Information You Might Need

If you’ve decided to play this drinking game (hopefully), you should know that the only criterion is being a Potterhead. Nohow a muggle! Here’s all you need to play:

  • One of Harry Potter movies, and a device to watch it;
  • Drinks for all players (shots, and beer);
  • Our rules;

Depending on the repetition of the phrases or scenes, the drinking rules are divided into 3 categories. You might either use all 3 when playing or pick one that fits best your drinking limit.

Ps. These drinking rules (for the movie drinking game) are general and can be applied to the movie of your choice. A Harry movie, by all means.
