Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

The first pickup of April was one of the best-attended this year, featuring ten people (multiple people from each house) - including someone who was returning to the game after over a decade! We began with a round of Xany and a round of Creaothceann, both on the regular set. Then it became time to f...

Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

The climate may not have been the best today, but we still saw a few people show up for pickups! We began with three rounds of Xany: two with the short question set (answers are three words or shorter) and one on the regular set. Then everyone was asked to name a number - and we decided our teams ba...

Most of the time I use some form of the name William as a first name, but with other names added as appropriate.

As rain began to settle in, the first February pickup was one of the better-attended ones; when all was said and done, every house was represented!
