Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

This night provided some very exciting Quidditch play! We started with a few rounds of Xany: with both the regular question set and our "Cascade" question set. Then, as has become customary, it was time to choose teams for Quodpot: this time we chose magical creatures to determine teams. E...

Re: Nobel Prizes

I would create a Nobel Prize in mathematics. Believe it or not, there is none. Although there are many other categories, I think I would create a mathematics category first and then create more. Math has a very interesting story as to why it has no Nobel Prize! (It's probably false, but I choose to...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Today was another fun round of pickups, with turnout equally balanced between three houses! We began by getting out our cauldrons for two rounds of Creaothceann: first with the regular question set and then with our special "Cascade" set. Then it came time for exploding Quods: our team sel...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Last evening's pickups gave us our second best turnout of the season with seven people (even if only two houses were represented). This was actually a themed night of play with two separate themes: "Goblet of Fire" (in honor of our readalong) and "Thanksgiving Travel" for team pl...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Last afternoon was probably the most exciting pickup of the season; with eight people showing up, it was our best turnout yet! Just as last time, we began with two quick rounds of Xany. Based on a suggestion from Sky Alton, we divided the teams based on our coffee preferences: those of us who had th...

Re: Questions?

This may be stupid: but can candidates vote for their own submissions? I’ve seen places where this was allowed... and places where it was punished.

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Last evening was our fourth pickup of the season, and a good time was had by all! We began with two quick rounds of Xany (designed to allow three people to get points for any given question). After that, out came the Quods and the special cauldron for a few rounds of Quodpot. We divided our teams ba...

Re: Questions?

I'm a bit confused about the talent section: are we trying to showcase the talents of our characters or the RL person behind the character (or both)? For example, let's suppose that my 'talent' is an image of my character waving my wand to cast some fancy spell. What matters more in that case: the s...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Our third pickup last afternoon had the best turnout yet! We began with an old favorite, strapping cauldrons to our head for Creaothceann. On the final question, I wondered "why does it always take half an hour to get between any two points in the castle?" But then it was time to form team...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

We had our second pickup of the season last night; it came complete with all sorts of exciting randomness! We began by playing two games of Xany... on the Cascade set. (Because Xany recognizes first through third place and Cascade randomly chooses an answer out of many, you might not know that you t...
