Hogwarts wouldn’t be Hogwarts without the houses vying for the famed Quidditch cup. Here at Hol we’re not about to deny you the chance to shoot a quaffle, dodge a bludger or snag a snitch.
The Wizarding World’s favourite sport is a massive part of things here. Hol Quidditch is played in real time on IRC and based on Harry Potter Trivia questions. You can show off your flying prowess in house matches, more casual ‘Quidditch Pick-ups’ (based on a mixture of canon broom games and ones unique to Hol) or our annual Summer Quidditch League. Cup matches between the houses will start in November so there’s time to get to grips with the game and get ready to support your team.
For this week’s 20 bean task, you have two options. Either have a go at Quidditch on IRC by ‘botting’ (playing by yourself using one of the question asking bots) or playing the ’20 questions’ game found in the Quidditch department on the main Hol site. You can find a bot in the IRC channel #quidpractice and please use your full Hol name as your IRC Nick for the purposes of this task (if you need help accessing IRC, please ask). Whichever you choose, send us a screenshot of your session to hol.offtoschool @ gmail.com (without the spaces) by 30th September
