J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore Launches House Cup Competition

J.K. Rowling‘s Pottermore website has launched a House Cup competition, reenacting the annual event from the Harry Potter books.

Fans of the boy wizard can explore different sections of the site, each named after one of the seven Harry Potter books. The site includes interactive content about the book, meant to compliment the reading experience. The House Cup competition will unlock new material on the site.

Check it out: “To take part in the House Cup simply log in to Pottermore and progress to the Sorting Hat ceremony in Chapter seven. There you’ll find out which of the four Hogwarts houses you’ll be placed into. Once you’ve been Sorted you’ll be able to help your house to victory by brewing potions and duelling with students from other houses to earn valuable points. Keep an eye on your house common room noticeboard and your owl notifications for important updates. After the inaugural Pottermore House Cup has been awarded there will be an update about Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”
