Bringing the Quidditch back!
Seen hh_quidditch? Take a peek at one of the old games.
Are you interested? If so, comment here! If we get at least 3 interested people from each house, we can bring Quidditch back this September! Some things will be a bit different, but the game play will be the same. And hopefully the fun will be the same! Quidditch was amazing fun.
But it can't happen if people aren't interested! We need three HiH members from each house - a total of 12 people - to express their interest right here. If we don't get those numbers, we can't bring Quidditch back now.
It's exciting! It's fun! It's a great way to spend time with fellow HiH folks. So say if you're interested! :-)
ETA: Match Dates
We will poll on best days of weeks and times of day, which any team member can vote in. All that goes into a spreadsheet, and several "best fit" dates and times are chosen. Then we vote on which of those are best. The one the most people can attend is when the match will be scheduled. Not everyone must be at every match.
1 Seeker - Does a scavenger hunt
1 Keeper - Asks final trivia question
1 Beater - Asks two trivia questions prior to the goal question
3 Chasers - take turns answering trivia questions. Possession of the "Quaffle" is kept when the Beater's questions are answered correctly; goals are scored when the Keeper's question is answered correctly.
a. The coaches will provide the Seekers with the scavenger hunt, and asks ALL Chasers a tossup question. Any Chasers are allowed to answer, and whichever team answers first (and correctly) earns possession of the Quaffle. This is in the Game Post; answers go into comments.
b. Beater ask 2 questions, Keeper asks one. Beater questions are worth *8* points, Keeper questions worth *24*. Chasers alternate in answering questions (if only two are available, the Chaser who answers the 2nd Beater also answers the Keeper; in this case, the Chaser who answers the first Beater question should alternate). Beater and Keepers are responsible for responding with whether the answer is correct or not so the game can continue.
Questions must come from a list of questions and answers emailed to the Beaters and Keepers by the Coach. The Beater and the Keeper are NOT allowed to rephrase the questions unless rephrasing is pre-approved by the coaches. Chasers have 4 minutes to answer, Beaters and the Keeper have 2 minutes to post a new question (if the previous answer was correct).
c. Coaches declare a switch in possession of the Quaffle, and the process continues again (with teams reversed in who's asking/answering).
d. Once the Seeker RETURNS with a fully-answered hunt, game play CONTINUES. They may have questions wrong, and the other Seeker may return with all correct answers before there's time to correct it. SO CONTINUE GAME PLAY while the coaches check the answers. If all answers are correct, the game is called by the coaches and points are tallied!
e. Game play may not exceed 2 hours, at the discretion of the Coaches (it can go either way here depending on start time, but you'll be warned in advance of the game ending). At this point, the Seeker with the most correct answer earns their team *90* points, and the points already earned are tallied up to produce a game-winner.
