Every winter for Christmas, Hogwarts shuts down – students by and large return home, and the halls of the school are filled with naught but quietude and the silent movement of ghosts through the rafters. This year is different, however. Albus Dumbledore, world-renowned wizard and headmaster of Hogwarts, has decided to take advantage of the school’s empty state to construct the sickest skate course known to muggle or wizard. Help Dumbledore build the best possible course so that he can cut the ice like a pro, taking advantage of unique Hogwarts features such as moving staircases, hidden passages and even the resident house-elves!
Created as part of the inaugural Idle Thumbs Winter Wizard Jam, I served as the designer on what I pitched as “excitebike but you’re Dumbledore.” I also wrote the descriptive blurb you see above this paragraph.
