New school year at Hogwarts, new Wizard Challenge thread here!
The rules for this Harry Potter trivia game are simple: one person poses a question, and the first person to correctly answer that question gets to ask the next.
Here's the first question:
Which students did Professor Slughorn invite to join him in his train carriage during Harry's sixth year?
Psst! Foggi! The Wizard Challenge turned the clock back 4 years. I did not know we had a time turner!
Based on threads I've made, you can't do anything. :oP No big deal!
I would start the guessing but I'm suffering brain drain lately. All I can think of are Hermione and Harry but that might be wrong too and possibly I'm thinking of the other meet-up he had in his apartment.
>5 varielle: That's enough to keep the game rolling, I think! Your turn.
Yes!! I wonder if you could make a pie out of it or if it would float away.
Harry spent several Christmasses at Hogwarts. During which years did he do so?
Harry used it to mend his own wand, then put it back in Dumbledore's grave?
Oh, I agree.
New question: how did Umbridge decorate her office at Hogwarts?
After the dementors scrambled Dudley's thinking, he left something outside Harry's door that accidentally got crushed. What was it? and bonus points - why do you think he did it?
Tut, tut. I don't think it was in the movie, but definitely in the book.
It was a cup of tea, and I think he was trying to make a friendly gesture.
Haven't checked in here for a long time. Nice to see all your usernames. :)
All right, new question: who did each of the tri-wizard champions take to the Yule Ball?
Harry with One of the Patils
Victor with Hermione
Cedric with Cho
Fleur with Roger Davies
What product were the girls particularly interested in in Fred and George's shop?
What dish did the Beaubaxtons delegation borrow from the Gryffindor table on their first evening at Hogwarts?
Gnomes! According to Gilderoy Lockheart's Guide to Household Pests, (or to Fred and George, who don't need advice from Lockheart) you catch them, whirl them around over your head until they are dizzy, then throw them!
They sure do!
Speaking of household pests, what are some of the things they encountered while cleaning 12 Grimmauld Place?
Correct! There were also doxies, and probably more that I'm not thinking of at the moment. Over to you!
What "alarming" household item was creating a rukus the night Mad Eye was likely captured by Barty Crouch, Jr.?
When Harry arrived at the Ministry for his hearing in Book 5, Mr. Weasley got a memo about certain Muggle items behaving in an unusual way in Bethnal Green. What was it?
Nope. There were more than one, I think -- I've edited the wording in my original question to reflect that.
After flying away on Buckbeak, where did Sirius hide out for a while and what did he use to communicate with Harry?
It was Africa people! Let's try a new one.
What happened to the deatheaters when they came for Mrs. Longbottom?
They got their behinds handed to them.
Who was the only deatheater who could cast a patronus?
What type of magical creature did Gilderoy Lockheart unleash upon a class and then leave Harry, Ron, and Hermione to clean up?
Jump-starting the game with an easy one:
Name three things sold by the trolley witch on the Hogwarts Express.
Let's go for more recent magical history, so to speak.
In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, why was the erumpent so agitated when Newt and Jacob were trying to catch her in the park?
Since it's been seven months let's try something else.
Who broke Newt Scamander's heart?
According to Hogwarts, A History, what would Muggles see if they stumbled across Hogwarts?
A mouldering old ruin with a sign over the entrance that says "danger, do not enter, unsafe".
How many times was Nearly-Headless Nick hit in the neck with a blunt axe?
Oh, dear . . . time to think up a question.
Why wasn't Dumbledore on hand when Harry, Ron, and Hermione went to find him at the climax of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (just before they went through the trapdoor)?
Hmm . . . well, they went to a tropical island for a bit, and then they stayed in a cave outside of Hogsmeade for a while. Is that an acceptable answer, or were you looking for something else?
Close enough. I wasn't specific. He kept him in the attic after they got back to Grimmauld Place. Carry on.
I've always wondered if I remembered this correctly--I thought Lavender survived in the book, but they seem to have killed her off in the movie.
>92 varielle: Your four are correct! I'm pretty sure Lavender survives in the books -- I hadn't realized that the movies killed her off. I haven't watched them (especially the later ones) as many times as I have read the books.
Anyhow, your turn for a question!
They're made of gold! And when the shell cracks, the pieces turn to diamond!
No, I just made all that up.
The egg of the Occamy is made of pure silver, which accounts for why it is so much sought after. It also has lustre-giving properties and is rather nutritious to the hair. Occamy egg shells were an essential ingredient for Felix Felicis.
Oh, dear, now I have to think up a question.
Where did Hermione get Crookshanks?
