Everyone gets a badge for awesome participation and team spirit!

A quick word about scoring: Teams earned points only for the items which all team members found, plus the bonus points earned by individual team members. If a roommate had technical difficulties or was simply missing in action this whole past week, I did not hold it against the other teammates, but there was consequently fewer possibilities to earn bonus points. Extra points were awarded for things like:
* all treasures found
* unique originality markers
* best taste in US football team
* creative ministers & magical creatures
* silliest puns
* sock monkey love story
* Ravenclaw fashionwear

Great job everyone! I'm so proud of the creative effort you all put into hunting for treasure, and I hope you had fun!


  1. This was a LOT of fun! Thanks for putting it together and a fourth place showing for Tailfeather is pretty good I think!

  2. I had so much fun doing this! My dormies and I were silly giddy with fun finding and interpreting all your cool required items.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Well done, Bella! I'm sorry I was far too late with posting my few pictures up :(

  4. I had such a blast doing this! My muggle friends were a huge help, and really got into it, too.

  5. This really was great fun Olive! I can hardly wait for the Trick or Treat swap you have planned! You are the social director extraordinaire! :D
