    On our party invite, it asks us to bring an item that would fix a broomstick. My thoughts have been duct tape and hot glue, but tose seem so obvious and will probably be used by others.

    Ideas?
    Has someone played this game before and can give me a heads up on an item that may entertain the party?

    Do you have information regarding the 'break' on the broomstick? Is this a traditional corn broom? Are there problems with take off and landing or just general sweeping issues? :confused:

    Hmm, maybe some sort of silly putty/clay, if it's snapped in half? Let us know how it goes!

    Or a wand? Hermione would have just said 'Reparo!'.

    New life goal: memorize all the spells in Harry Potter... and then get a magic wand to use them with....

    Yep! We have a tv remote wand. It works so/so. I'm sure if I were able to take a class at Hogwarts about how to use it, it would work better.

    Can you tell I'm in the thick of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows right now? Dh just got us tickets to opening night in two weeks... ;)

    If it's a witch's broom, maybe you could fix it with a pumpkin patch...
