Trivia - How much do you remember?

Post  Verity Weasley on Tue Jun 03, 2014 5:06 am

The aim of this game is to test your memory for all things HP. Do you still remember your bowtruckle from your billywig? Can you tell a bezoar from a bicorn? Do you remember if Barnabas was barmy or just batty? Can you tell I just randomly clicked on the letter B on the Lexicon A-Z?

During the reunion it is intended that this will be a fairly fast-moving trivia game, so check back often. Five questions will be posted at a time, then the solutions and scores will follow a couple of hours later, after a few people have had the chance to take part, and new questions will be posted.

Grand Reunion Trivia Quiz - Part One
In honour of the Quidditch World Cup currently being played out on Pottermore, the theme for this first set of questions is Quidditch!   

1. In GoF, which country knocked England out of the Quidditch World Cup?
2. For which Quidditch team did Ludo Bagman play?
3. How many ways are there of committing a foul?
4. What is the 'dangerous seeker diversion' that could be described as Viktor Krum's signature move? (Bonus point for also remembering what Hermione called it.)
5. Who is the captain of the all-female team, the Holyhead Harpies?

I'll sit this out. I don't remember a thing.  

EDIT: Just remembered Victor Krum's signature move -

Spoiler:
4. The Wronsky Feint, and Hermione called it the Wonky Feint or Faint!

I've never been good at Quidditch, so don't expect much.   

Spoiler:
1. Transsylvania?

3. There are several hundreds of them.

4. Wronsky something.

5. Gwenog Jones.

Well it's taken a little while, but thankfully there are enough guesses now to warrant posting the answers. I'll put them in a spoiler box, in case anyone else is still lurking and would like to guess.

The answers:
Spoiler:
1. In GoF, which country knocked England out of the Quidditch World Cup? Transylvania
2. For which Quidditch team did Ludo Bagman play? Wimbourne Wasps
3. How many ways are there of committing a foul? 700
4. What is the 'dangerous seeker diversion' that could be described as Viktor Krum's signature move? (Bonus point for also remembering what Hermione called it.) Wronski Feint / Wonky Faint   
5. Who is the captain of the all-female team, the Holyhead Harpies? Gwenog Jones

Scores are out of a possible 6 points, as there was a possible bonus point available for question 4.

Shepherdess - 4
Mona - 2
Julia - 2.5   
HG - 3 (I've awarded a couple of half points for Q3 and 4)   

So, Shepherdess, it looks likes you're the winner!   

Well done to everybody and thanks for playing.
