From the ordinary, to the bizarre, both the Muggle and Wizarding world are full of unique subjects. Pull up a chair, and pay no attention to the menacing hourglass in the corner, it won't affect you... yet. There are so many words floating about your noggins, and you'll finally be able to put them to good use starting today. Gather your quills, and get ready to beat the clock in this fast-paced competition!

Your Task:
This contest will have you in groups of 5 and playing rounds of the game Scattergories! Throughout the month we will announce in this thread that we are looking for some people to play. You will be given one list and three letters. You will be given 15 minutes to answer as many of the categories on the list three times over (one per letter). There will be 12 categories (exs. Book Titles, Infamous Duos, Words with Double Letters). Whichever person has the most points in the group will win. Everyone who plays at least once will get a participation ticket. Winners of each group will earn 5 tickets, but will not be allowed to play again after winning. You'll find more rules in the threads and below in the rules section.

Rules:

When we announce that we are looking for players, we will state exactly how many players we are looking for.
Games will start shortly after sign-ups close. They will be 15 minutes long, so be ready and availible to play when you sign-up.
You will have a list of 12 categories that you are working with for a game. All 5 members of a group playing together will have the same list. You do not have to complete it to enter it, but the closer to complete you get, the more points you are likely to win.
Accompanying your list will be 3 letters. These will also be the same for everyone in your group. You will need to attempt to fill out the list 3 times each, once per letter.
Although we are accepting incomplete entries, we will not accept late entries.
This contest will end on November 24th at 11:59pm HEX time. Questions should be posted in THIS thread.
The individual winner of a group will be the person with the most points. In the case of a tie, randomizer will be used. That winner will receive five tickets. The final winners for this contest will be chosen via randomizer.
All players who meet minimum requirements will receive one total participation ticket. You may participate as many times as you like, but if you win a round, you may not participate further.
The two bullet points above mean that users will earn either one or five total tickets, the difference being whether they won a round or not.


Prizes:



1st place: Smart-Answer Quill + 4000 HP
2nd place: Pack of Bloodstained Cards + 3000 HP
3rd place: Holiday Wizarding Chess + 2000 HP
4th place: 1000 HP
5th place: 1000 HP


Keep an eye out for rounds opening! Good luck!

Rules for Scoring

-The letters provided in each round are "key letters." This means that your answers must start with these letters. You are only allowed to answer one thing per letter, per ballot (so 36 answers total), but your answer may be longer than one word if it needs to be.
-If your answer is exactly the same as another player's, no matching player will get the point(s), including you.
-Typos are acceptable as long as it is still clear what word it was and it is not the key letter which is wrong.
- - If you can use your key letter as the start of more than one word within an answer, it will earn you more points. This will only apply to proper nouns and titles. For example, Peter Pan would give two points if the key letter is "P."
- The articles "A", "An", and "The" cannot be used as key letters. For example, "B" is the key letter for the MOVIE TITLE, A Beautiful Mind; "P" is the key letter for the BOOK, The Pelican Brief. This is the case for all languages.
- You cannot use the same answer for more than one category, this includes part of an answer if it is your key word. For example, you may not say Apple Pie for FOOD and then follow it with Apple Tree for PLANT.
-When answering with a proper noun, you may use the first or last name, as long as the key letter is the first letter of your answer. For example, if the key letter is G and the categories is PRESIDENTS, your answer could be George Bush or Garfield, James.
- Creative answers can be acceptable. For example, if the category is SPICES/HERBS and the key letter is P, you can answer Posh. But if one mod challenged the answer, the mods must vote on its acceptability.
- You must get your entry in on time to be counted.
-We will not accept extra answers.
-The person with the most points will win the game. If there is a tie for the most points, a randomizer will decide.
-You get 1 participation ticket just from turning in your ballot, assuming this is your first time. You must complete at least half the ballot to be counted for participation.
