When we scheduled our Harry Potter Trivia night, we expected a decent turnout. We thought that with school starting back up, and the summer drawing to a close, the crowd would be adequate. Each of us thought that Harry Potter night would be a success, but none of expected it to be a larger success than Star Wars Trivia night. In typical fashion, you guys came out in force and proved that yes, we are idiots. :)

Over 100 people showed up, quite a few decked out in their favorite Harry Potter gear. We had James Potter, Mad-Eye Moody, Remus Lupin, Moaning Myrtle, Luna Lovegood, Lucius Malfoy, and many more. The costumes were truly fantastic. Speaking of costumes, the prizes for the best costumes (though they all were great) went to Lupin, Madeye, and Luna in that order. Congratulations to each of you!

With just short of 30 teams in the bar and on the patio, the stage was set for us to venture into the Chamber of Secrets, discover and destroy the horcruxes, join the Order of the Phoenix, and win the Tri-Wizard Tournament! It didn't take long to realize that you guys REALLY love Harry Potter. We'll cover all the records set for Harry Potter in a moment, but it was interesting that we finished with 20 teams tied for the lead after the opening round. Of course that number decreased dramatically as we learned more and more about the wizarding world, but we still had an incredibly high number of teams within a few points at the top of the leaderboard. When Game 1 came to a close, we learned that the final score of the Quiddich World Cup (btw, it was 170-160) was the question which separated the pack. In the end, Slitherclaw just edged out What the Hell is a Razzleberry? for the top prize. 

In the Power Hour, as we jumped on our Firebolt and escaped the grasp of the Hungarian Horntail, we learned once again how smart you guys really are. Though we did have to remind some people to keep their phones put away, we ended up with a Power Hour for the ages. We mourned the loss of Dumbledore (spoiler alert: he dies), we were annoyed by Lavender Brown, we cheered when Molly Weasley killed Bellatrix Lestrange, and we rejoiced when Harry defeated Voldemort. But more importantly, we had an incredibly tight game going into the final question, our Bonus Kitchen Timer question. At the end of 2 short minutes, we had 2 teams standing at the top of the mountain of Harry Potter trivia, We're Here for the Butterbeer and Save a Horse, Ride a Quiddich Player. We had to have a tiebreaker question to determine who would fulfill the prophecy and be the Chosen One

The Chosen One, our Power Hour Champion for Harry Potter Trivia night...... Save a Horse, Ride a Quiddich Player

If you're curious, here are some records we set for the night:

  • Number of teams (28)
  • Number of players (101)
  • Highest score (not including bonus) - perfect game (tied)
  • Number of teams with a perfect score Round 1 (20)
  • Number of teams with a perfect score Round 2 (10)
  • Number of teams with a perfect score Round 3 (9)
  • First ever perfect game (not including bonus)
  • Teams with a perfect game (not including bonus) (5)

All in all, it was a fantastic night and we truly appreciate everyone coming out. Now, if you liked Harry Potter night, go ahead and mark your calendars now for our next theme nights....
