We know that Quidditch is one of the most famous games in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It is an outdoor game created by J K Rowling. What are some of the indoor games played by the wizards in the wizarding world? Has there been any mention of these games in the books or movies?

I want to know about magical indoor games, not Muggle games, or the magical modification of Muggle indoor games.

    Non-canon, the James Potter series had 'augers and winckles' - suspect there will be more in other fanfic. – Michael Jun 2 at 10:45

Pottermore/Wizarding World lists chess, exploding snap, gobstones, and collecting chocolate frog cards - all magical variants on well known Muggle games.
