    Thanks, everyone, for coming! I had SO MUCH FUN!

    I posted this on the Facebook page, but I don't think you are all on it, sooooo...

    Some people have asked for some of the harder questions that didn't make it into the trivia game tonight.

    #1: What is the name of the animated corpses that Voldemort used as an army of the dead?

    #2: What is Aragog? We want the name of the actual creature.

    #3: Filch's cat (Mrs. Norris), Colin Creevey, and Hermione all get petrified by the basilisk. How did each one get petrified (as opposed to killed)?

    #4: Name three portkeys actually used in the story (not just mentioned).

    #5: Other than Harry, name three masters of the Elder Wand.

    #6: What spell gets rid of a boggart?

    #7: What potion gives you really good luck?

    #8: What spell slows or stops an object or individual?

    #9: In book seven, what is the spell Hermione casts in order to reveal the presence of people nearby?

    #10: Name three gifts Harry receives for his seventeenth birthday.

      Ooh these are good. I can't get a few of them (no idea on number 9), though I can still get most. As for number six, who can forget Lupin yelling "Ridikulous!"

      October 24, 2013

    • Chris

      OK, somebody please post the answer to number 9 and what page it's on........ I'm losing sleep

      Did you...expecto patronus? ;)

      October 25, 2013

  • Geneen G.

    I had a great time. Even though I was in the team with the lowest score...again...It really showed me how little I know about Harry Potter when I thought I was pretty knowledgeable. Trivia's are my favorite.

    1 · October 25, 2013

  • Chris

    You guys did a phenomenal job organizing this!

    5 · October 24, 2013

    • Michal

      I'm so glad you had fun!!

      October 24, 2013

  • Abby

    If you're on Pottermore and know your house...wear your house colors! I definitely will be ;) House affiliation teams are not necessary but it would be fun to see where most of the geeks lie.

    October 17, 2013

    • Taran H.

      Yeah I thought I might be Gryffindor but Pottermore says I'm Tyrell. :/

      5 · October 24, 2013

    • Ryan C.

      Turns out I'm slytherin. Don't know if I should be proud of that lol

      October 24, 2013

  • Jordana M.

    October 24, 2013

    October 24, 2013

    • Joel W.

  • Novella

    I got into hufflepuff but I don't own any yellow :( I'm wearing black pants, does that work? I'm also giving Paul my Gryffindor scarf!

    October 24, 2013

  • Ryan C.

    Hey is there anybody going through Rye after the event that could give me a ride back home?

    October 24, 2013

  • turkbroda

    I will answer every question with the answer- Hufflepuff!

    4 · October 1, 2013

    • turkbroda

      I am not an Hufflepuff, but I am sure they are nice people.

      October 23, 2013

    • Altair

      I am such a Hufflepuff. We are so nice.

      October 23, 2013

  • maria r

    Gryffindor all the way!

    October 23, 2013

  • Michal

    Am I a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor? Tests always put me in Gryffindor, but I am ridiculously academic... I'm a total Hermione, hand waving in the air and all...

    Those of you who know me, what do you think?

    October 22, 2013

    • Michal

      Yeah, but the sorting hat considered putting her in Ravenclaw...

      October 23, 2013

    • Dina

      Michal - totally Gryff.

      October 23, 2013

  • Stephanie

    Where are all my Slytherin's?? Or should I not admit to that....

    1 · October 20, 2013

    • Stephanie

      Harsh! This is why we're so misunderstood! None of you give us a chance! Our bad reputation needs changing.

      1 · October 22, 2013

    • Joel W.

      i vouch for us being good people. i will put my good name on it. we will include non-magical humans as well

      October 22, 2013

  • Hobbes

    So I know nothing about Harry's Potter but have been craving their shepherd's pie. If it was the Wheel of Time, Dark Tower, or even A Song of Ice & Fire series I might be a lil more than less than useless. So sucks if you're on my team :P

    1 · October 22, 2013

  • Chris

    So I may not be able to make it my car may be going into the shop tomorrow and I'm not sure how long it will take I'm hopping I can make it though

    October 21, 2013

    • Chris

      Chris, if you are coming from white plains I may be able to give you a lift

      October 21, 2013

    • Chris

    I am soooo excited for this!!! Also, I will be dressed up for a Halloween Party I'm gong to following this trivia. If anyone is interested in joining me, it's at Garcia's in Port Chester, NY. It's the bar attached to The Capitol Theatre! Should be fun and will be more fun if some of you joined me! Just sayin' lol

    2 · October 20, 2013

  • Chris

    Is there an age limit. I mean, how young can we go? Do you have to be 21 to get into the pub?

    October 17, 2013

    • Dina

      No the pub is also a restaurant so there's no age limit to get in. I'd say maybe 16 & up for this particular event since HP appeals to a younger demographic in general. How old is the person you were thinking of?

      October 18, 2013

    • Chris

      15. I haven't asked her yet. She might not even want to come. She's more into D and D

      October 18, 2013

  • Kris

    So this will be my first event and I must admit I'm getting really excited!

    1 · October 17, 2013

    • Damon

      Kris: my first event was trivia in April and it was soooo much fun! It's a great bunch of people. :)

      October 17, 2013

  • Kyle T.

    Sorry guys, I'd love to play but I don't know jack squat about Harry Potter. I know there's a guy with no nose, but that's about it. Any chance there will be a Buffy trivia night? I'll rock that......

    August 26, 2013

    • Dina

      There will be a Joss Whedon trivia, just not sure when. It's in the works.

      2 · August 26, 2013

    • Dina

      Kyle- Buffy Trivia is Jan 21! Check the meet up calendar and make sure you RSVP!

      October 17, 2013

  • Jennifer

    Wait.... we need partners? I don't know anyone!

      Is it going to be groups of 2-3?

      September 10, 2013

    • Dina

      I think with the group as large as it is, we're gonna do teams of 4 like regular trivia.

      October 17, 2013

  • Damon

    Going to try to rewatch all of the movies, so I'm not completely useless for this one

    i may be a tad bit late as i get out of work at 7 but i will come straight there

    September 30, 2013

    • Dina

      No worries Chris, we'll save you a spot!

      1 · September 30, 2013

    • Chris

      thank you!

      September 30, 2013

  • Michal

    We haz sooooo many questions to pare down. I'm excited!

    September 12, 2013

  • Chris

    Is there a fellow Hufflepuff out there who would like to team up with me?

    Note, this picture of me is me having a Butterbeer after riding the HP ride at Universal studios. Which was AWESOME. And yes, that's Hermione on my T-shirt.

    BTW, Sorry you can't come Keith, you seem like you'd be an interesting person to hang out with. I used to want to go to Vegas, then they took away the Star Trek hotel. anyway, have a good trip.

    September 8, 2013

    • Chris

      Yay! Found a Ravenclaw to partner with!

      1 · September 10, 2013

    • Shannon

      Really looking forward to this!!

      September 10, 2013

  • Keith

    I'll be in las Vegas that week.

  • Steve R.

    So I guess you can finally use your List Three Things example question as an actual question! ;)

    2 · August 25, 2013

    • Michal

      Haha, suffice it to say, naming the houses of Hogwarts won't be a question on my quiz. We can all breathe a sigh of relief. The example question can remain. ;)

      1 · August 26, 2013

    • Dina

      Steve, that question was used at the first trivia, and its been my example ever since!
