Match 3 Game Post!

If either mzmtiger or sevensecondshow show up before 9:30 they can still play and Gryffindor won't lose any points.

But we can't wait forever So

here we go

Seeker Search:
1. Name a book written in 2003 with wizards and dragons just like Harry Potter. This book also was made into a movie. Give me the name of the book and a link to a movie poster.
2. Finish the quotes. There is a quote from each book the number of the quote represents the number of the book it is found in. (I've put blanks at the end so you know how long I'm looking for the answer to be. Each blank equals one word.)
1. "Dumbledore is particularly famous for his defeat of the dark wizard Grindelwald in 1945, for the discovery of the _____ ____ ___ ______ ______, ____ _____ _____ _____ _______ ____ ____ ____ ______ ______!"
2. "Listen with you two flying around me all the time the only way I'm going to _____ _____ ______ ___ ___ ____ ____ ____ ____ ______."
3. "Flint's excuse is that their Seeker's arm's still injured. But it's obvious why they're _____ ____. ______ _____ ___ ___ ___ ___ ______. _____ ____ _______ _____ ________...."
4. "Because - oh shut up laughing, you two - because they've both just been ______ _____ ______ ______ ______ ______ _____ ____ ______!"
5. "I know it's not ideal weather, but there's a good chance we'll be _____ _______ ____ _______ _____ _____ ____ _____ ____ _____ _____ ____ ____ ____ ____ _____ ______ ____ _____ ____ _____."
6. "Good gracious, is it that time already? you'd better get going, boys, or _____ _____ _____ _____ _______. ________, _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ ________ ____ _____ ________."
7. "Maybe he did believe these things when he was seventeen, but the ____ ____ ____ _____ ____ ____ _____ _____ ________ ___ ______ ____ ____ ______!"
3. How many pages is the longest HP book (hardback US editions). And how many chapters does it have?
4. Many people don't agree with or don't like the Epilogue to the 7th book. Write your version of the epilogue in 250 words or less with at least 3 changes (to show effort).
5. Find me a link where I can buy Harry Potter money, seemingly good quality products.
6. Find me a humerous video where someone has used harry potter movie clips and paired them with a rediculous song.. Example is below. (Obviously a different humerous clip ;) lol)

**If you're having a hard time with question one a hint may be available.. but try without the hint first**

Total House Points for Match 3

Ravenclaw 130pts
Hufflepuff 139pts
Slytherin 88pts
Gryffindor 63pts

I'm breaking down my math for you guys to check too because I do make mistakes (I know it's hard for most of you to believe but alas I'm only human lol)
Ravenclaw:
3 players @ 15pts/player = 45pts
game pts 114/2 = 57pts
item pts (hh_diagon) = 28pts
Total: 130pts

Hufflepuff
3 players @ 15pts/player = 45pts
game pts 114/2 = 57pts
item pts (hh_diagon) = 37pts
Total: 139pts

Gryffindor
3 players @ 15pts/player = 45pts
game pts = 18pts
item pts = 10pts
deduction = 10pts (sevensecondshow no show)
Total: 63pts

Slytherin
2 players @ 15pts/player = 30pts
game pts = 18pts
item pts (hh_diagon) = 20pts
bonus points = 10pts for gryff no show
extra pts = 10pts for araike playing both beater and keeper
Total: 88pts

That look right to you guys???
Good Enough

Quidditch Cup (and other things)

So assuming the points from the 3rd match are correct, I've had to basically just pick which option to award the Quidditch cup.

I picked awarding it to the total top house points wise from the 3 matches. Next term we are going to try our best to play the term house vs house instead of 2houses vs 2 houses. So I believe we need this final month in the term to practice in our locker rooms and to see how well each house assembles a full team (since we'll need them next term).

I'm also going to talk to Sas about redoing the rules (not drastically) and the points earning thing. So look for posts about that in the near future.

So without further ado. Here is the total points earned this term.
Hufflepuff with 321 points
Ravenclaw with 318 points
Gryffindor with 271 points and
Slytherin with 210 points.

That said.......

I've decided that it's only fair (considering the extreme closeness between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw) that the cup shall be awarded to both Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw!

Now go practice practice practice!!!

AND if need be we might can add more alternates for the rosters for next term.

So hate my decision? love it? let me know :)
*edit* I've also sent an inquiry to hh_flourish about getting sig tags made for the cup winners and maybe a banner or something to put on the house profiles or something. and something to put on hh_quidditch profile. Just thought I'd let you guys know!
