Quiddler, Xacitka, Set—are they similar to Quidditch? Nope, but they be just as much fun. Be careful when you visit this site as time seems to go really fast as you play the Daily Puzzle in each of the three games. Finding that last set, finding just the right combination of letters, or winning all eight tricks sometimes seems impossible—keep trying, you’ll get it.
