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

It was a cold, bright afternoon in January - which was actually perfect for the first Quidditch pickups of 2018! We began "normally": with a game of Xany on the regular set, and then formed teams for the usual explosive games on the pitch. This time, we decided to mix two previous methods ...

Re: December – Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day

My first thought was "I'll go back in time to change my past" but then I realized how risky that was. Instead I decided to go 100 years into the future, to December 30, 2117. I went to the library and started reading (electronically) the major newspapers over the past 100 years, taking car...

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

The last pickups of 2017 were the most exciting and popular of the year, with plenty of new faces returning! We began with a quick round of Creaothceann, but then we threw off our cauldrons in favor of the notorious exploding Quod. Team selection was done in honor of the first person to ever write a...

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...

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: 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...
