The silver and gold plated Quidditch Chess Set looks like a valuable family antique passed down for generations (or perhaps stolen by a magical ancestor on a secret visit to Hogworts!). But in reality, it’s a totally modern and downright fun way to while away the hours. Gryffindor or Slytherin; Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff? Choose your team and pit them against any of the houses.
