Merch Share & Game Day (House Competition!)

Want to see what interesting items relating to Harry Potter your fellow DADAers have? Want to hang out with fellow Harry Potter fans to play games? Then have we got the meetup for you!

Showing Off Your Merch
If you have something Harry Potter-related to show off (books, costumes, crafts, official merchandise, WRock, etc.) feel free to bring it. We'll set up some tables to display it all.

Games
If you have any Harry Potter games, definitely feel free to bring those, because at the same time we'll be having a game day and our FIRST DADA House Competition! You'll have a chance to complete puzzles on your own and play games with others to win your house points. If you have a muggle game you think we wizards & witches might like to play, you may bring that as well. We'll have a variety of games including (we hope) a new Harry Potter Scene-it DVD game that includes all seven movies.

WRock Mix CD Exchange
We'll also have an optional WRock mix CD exchange. All you need to do is put together a mix CD of Wizard Rock songs and bring two copies of the CD to share. We'll pull 'em out of a hat and everyone will go home with 2 new CDs. Rules:
+you may select songs to have a theme to your mix, but that is not necessary
+you may bring two different mixes, as long as you bring two CDs in total
+DO NOT include more than 2 songs from any one artist. We want to be fair to the artists. So sharing wizard rock by giving each other a taste of songs is good (so the person can fall in love and go buy more music from that artist). Therefore, copying an entire CD is NOT allowed!
+each CD must have at least 10 songs on it
+include a listing of each song including title & artist

House Cup Competition
Points will be awarded to an individual's house of choice (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, or Awesome) based on the following:
*5 points for participating in the WRock Mix CD exchange (maximum 5 points)
*5 points for bringing a food or drink item (5 bonus points if it is a Harry Potter themed food or drink item; maximum 10 points)
*5 points for bringing in merch items to show off to the group (5 bonus points if you have one item or more that no one else brought; maximum 10 points)
*5-10 points for wearing robes, a Harry Potter-themed item, or a normal clothing item that somehow reflects your house (5 points for wearing something related to Harry Potter; 5 bonus points if what you wear has to do with the house you're in. Ex: Hufflepuff Quidditch shirt is both Harry Potter related and Hufflepuff related=10 points, general Harry Potter t-shirt with no house connection=5 points, a green shirt for Slytherin house color=5 points; maximum 10 points)
*5 points for bringing in a game to play (5 bonus points if it is a Harry Potter game; maximum 10 points)
*Various points for completing puzzles/games (assigned based on difficulty)
*Various points for winning games (assigned based on difficulty & game play time)

At the end of the day, points will be calculated and we will announce the winner of the DADA House Cup!

    Lots of great food and games. Some very impressive and intriquing merch as well. The beads and the house cup were a really nice touch. Unfortunately the Hufflepuffs lost despite having the most representatives. As for the Slytherins, I guess quality beat quantity!

    We need more Gryffindors!

    kate did a great job organizing this event! There was plenty of fun merch to look at, and yummy food, tons of games and HP game enthusiasts to play with. Those Slytherins - they are an ambitious lot!

    Running late and not making anything from scratch, I call this my Delma Maneuver.

  • delma

    Running late. Didn't make sandwiches but picked up a dessert I am calling The Pastry Chain of Awesome. It's Harry Potter related.

    This can't be right - according to my iTunes, 8 of my top 11 listened to songs have the word "lament" in them.

    I reserved the room until 4:30 but I don't think anyone has it after us. So I think we'll be able to stay until closing or, if it looks like it will take us longer than 5pm to clean up and move out, I can get the key and we can stay a little later.

    What time does the library kick us out?

    May 25, 2012

  • Rach

    Just don't burn the sandwiches Delma!

    May 25, 2012

  • delma

    I hope to burn a few.

    May 25, 2012

  • Miriah

    I just installed a new CD burner, sounds like a good way to break it in.

    May 24, 2012

  • Rach

    But almost all the wrock I have I got from you Kate!

    May 24, 2012

  • KateKintail

    Who's planning to make a Mix WRock CD for the exchange? *raises hand in the air and looks around to see if anyone else is doing likewise*

    May 24, 2012

  • delma

    I think I am bringing Hufflepuff sandwiches.

    May 22, 2012

  • delma

    Affie, I am sorry you won't be able to attend - but, yeah Girl Scouts!

    May 2, 2012

  • Affie

    I totally forgot I'm already committed to helping out a Girl Scout troop. for a camping trip that lands on the weekend of this even. So I can't share my butterbeer and join in on the shenanigans. :(

    May 1, 2012

  • Katey

    Additives tend to make me ill, so I'd love some butterbeer w/out corn syrup!

    1 · April 25, 2012

  • Affie

    I'm hoping to bring butterbeer, too! However, mine would be mostly organic, completely vegan, and free of alcohol and high-fructose corn syrup. (I've made it before and it actually tastes really good.) Should I hold off on it?

    1 · April 25, 2012

  • delma

    Rach, decisions decisions! Maybe we should go with the pumpkin juice - and save the butterbeer for the the high wizarding holidays - Halloween or Harry's BD.

    April 6, 2012

  • KateKintail

    Haha! Maximum 10 points for a merch item, if it's something no one else has, wizard wear included. But maybe I'll add on a separate line with 5 points for dressing in your house's colors or wearing a house-related shirt or robes.

    April 6, 2012

  • Rach

    How about a robe over a T, eh? Would that be 10 points for both? 15 if I wear the vulture hat too? ;-)
    Should I bring butterbeer (with new park-accurate topping) or pumpkinjuice?

    April 6, 2012

  • delma

    ooh! I think anyone who shows up in Wizard Wear (robes or t-shirts) should get 5 pts as well. - just a suggestion. ohhh!! and 5 pts for bringing a non-member guest.

    April 6, 2012

  • delma

    Well behaved witches and wizards enjoying mild mannered frivolity - at least until a certain wizard (michael) starting climbing the trees! ;-)
