Rush on down to Platform 9 3/4 because the train to Hogwarts is about to leave! That’s right, you muggles. It’s Harry Potter time here at Idle Hour, and 21 teams arrived to see if their house would win the day!
With the magic (and butterbeer) flowing free, we began our show. These Potterheads showed their true colors in Round One, throwing down some incredibly niche knowledge for this wizarding world. The Chosen One and 2 Hufflepuffs walk into a bar took an early lead.
Round Two was more of a gut punch to our wonderful wizards, as quite a few double down…only to discover they had been bewitched by a trick question! The scores hardly moved, but Emergency Food: Prisoner of Appetizers leapt into third.
Round Three proved another shocker…for the bottom of the leaderboard at least. The Hollywood Harpies flew up and snatched third place, though that didn’t immediately end the game and award 150 points like some kind of silly sport.
Our Guess Who round caught a few teams off guard, and suddenly the game had its first solo lead: 2 Hufflepuffs walk into a bar! But could they hold their place?
In our drinking round, we challenged these mystical soothsayers to divine the total number of books sold in the HP series (and the worldwide gross of the first movie). After a tense tie-breaker, 2 Hufflepuffs earned free shots of Firewhiskey…but would it be enough to keep their winning streak alive?
Round Five saw Emergency Food reclaim their third place spot. In fact, they were clawing their way higher and higher toward that coveted champion spot!
Round Six challenged our heroes to remember the fates of the fallen throughout the series. While the top two held their ground, For Fawkes Sake rose from the ashes into third place, setting the room ablaze. It was all coming down to the final question.
With their O.W.L’s completed, we were ready to crown our winners. In first place, 2 Hufflepuffs, a Ravenclaw and Slytherin walk into a bar, in second, The Chosen One (literally a single HP superfan), and For Fawkes Sake in third!
