Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This evening featured weather possibly as hot as it was during the first recorded Quidditch match (remember: Gertie Keddle's first word describing Quidditch was "hot".) Nevertheless, we still saw all four houses show up to play today! We began with a quick 11-boulder round of Creaothceann... and the...

Explanation of Pickup Games: the 2019 edition

"So what do we do in Quidditch pickups if we almost never actually play Quidditch in pickups?" I'm glad you asked! There are four "standard" games we play in pickups that involve neither Quaffle nor Snitch. In alphabetical order, they are as follows: CAB, Creaothceann, Quodpot, and Xany. Although al...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

After a few failed attempts, pickups finally returned to HOL this past evening. The turnout was pretty good - including all four houses and some brand new players! This time, we began with two different rounds of Xany - and in order to allow more people to get on the board, we even included 0.5 poin...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening we had the first pickup of 'summer time' for HOL. People from all four houses showed up for the party, though we probably couldn't quite describe the gathering as "2 ickles and 3 nuts". Instead of flying to a recent Muggle song (as I threatened), we began with the more standard act...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This evening's pickup may or may not have been affected by an incident involving Muggle clocks working differently in different places. Regardless, there were still plenty of explosions for those of us who were able to make it out there! We began by casting spells to determine teams: Will was the on...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Before this evening's Quidditch pickups could begin, we all needed to vanquish another foe: Muggle clocks that insisted on poor synchronisation on both sides of the pond! But despite the confusion, we still managed a solid turnout, with each house represented. First we began with two rounds of Xany:...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Last evening's Quidditch gathering could be considered a birthday celebration for one of our players... except that the bot had a mind of its own. We began with a round of Creaothceann (on the Cascade set); at the end of the round, Cody gave a bit of foreshadowing by saying 'i've never had this much...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Today's Quidditch gathering was one of the best attended ones yet - with all houses represented by multiple people! We began by racing around for Xany, but with a twist... instead of only three people getting points per question, we changed things so the first FIVE people to answer a question would ...

This night featured another fun gathering of Quidditch players for some fun with cauldrons and Quods! First we put our cauldrons on for Creaothceann as players trickled in; then it was time to divide teams. Everyone was asked to choose spells of their choice: some of us chose dueling spells ending i...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Yesterday, a number of us assembled onto the pitch for another round of exciting pickups! We began with two and a half broom races in the game of "Xany" and then it was time to play with everyone's favorite dynamic Quod again! To pick teams, we asked everyone to give the year they started out here a...
