A team challenge. Each team has a member from all four houses. My team is Team 1.
February is here. It’s still cold outside. What a great time to bring a friend or sweetheart to share some good conversation and a great Butterbeer!
This challenge is a recipe challenge. Find all the ingredients to earn points. This challenge is a team of four. The twist is the teams of four people have to be from different Houses. Each team must have a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
What to do:
♡ Sign up by saying what house you are in. I’ll make a list and you’ll be teamed up with your team using a random generator.
♡ January 31, 2015 11:59 (PST) is last sign up day.
♡ Once the teams have been made, post a message by one member for your team to keep track of tasks. This will make it easier for me to see if you have completed all elements of the challenge.
♡ If you finish this challenge you earn 8 points.
♡ If you only participate (reading at least one book) and not finish the challenge you get 1 point.
Points of Interest:
♡ On February 1, I’ll be making the teams with a random generator and fill in any teams needed.
♡ Teams will be posted by February 8.
♡ On the week of February 8-14, 2015 you will be given time to plan with your team.
♡ If there are an odd number of people in a team, I will post in your common room for any players.
♡ If there are no takers when I post for more players, you may play a second game.
♡ If there is a team that needs an extra player you may play a second game but only earn 4 more points for the second game.
♡ If you play a third game you can only earn 2 points for the third game. If you play a fourth game you can only earn 1 point for the fourth game. (This means you can only play 4 times. Meaning you have the opportunity to earn up to 15 points.)
♡ I will make a reserve for the players willing to play a second game.
♡ It's up to you to keep in touch with your team. (You can PM each other, post in the forum, or even make a temporary GR group)
♡ You cannot use the same books from team to team. (This only applies if you play more than one game.)
♡ You will be reading about 3 to 4 books during this challenge.
♡ You may use YA and Children’s books. Page count for book must be at least 125. For YA and Children’s books page count must be at least 150 pages.
