    The Sorting Hat’s New Song - Task 1

    For were there such friends anywhere As Slytherin and Gryffindor? Unless it was the second pair Of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw? And only those of sharpest mind Were taught by Ravenclaw While the bravest and the boldest Went to daring Gryffindor. It was both interesting and annoying to me that Gryffindor and Ravenclaw were paired up as a "rhyme" twice in the song since I figured they would be fairly easy to rhyme with other words. The order was switched as well, so I couldn't just go with "Ravenclor" both times. Or maybe I can... if I adopt a different accent? I also like these lines with the Sorting Hat wondering if the sorting might do more harm than good and use of the word "quarter." Though I must fulfill my duty And must quarter every year Still I wonder whether sorting May not bring the end I fear.

    The Sorting Hat’s New Song - Task 2

    I'd definitely go for mashed potatoes with plenty of gravy. I like to mix corn in with my mashed potatoes. Not quite sure what protein I'd want... That'll depend on my mood and how easy it is to reach. *g* It's really hard for me to say no to anything with mushrooms or broccoli or shrimp. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin juice, so I'd opt for a large glass of apple cider.

    Luna Lovegood - Task 2

    Southern Sapphire Shift Insect enthusiasts around the world are preparing to watch the Southern Sapphire Shift in Australia. The vivid, sapphire blue Billywigs spend their springs and summers in the Australia Alps, but migrate to a warmer climate as winter approaches. While a single Billywig is typically difficult to spot, a whole swarm of Billywigs is a beautiful sight. Still, omniculars are recommended for those who plan to view the migration. Australian magizoologists have already set up several viewing areas. They also want to remind everyone that Billywigs do possess stingers, so be sure to stay out of the migratory path. The effects of being stung include giddiness and levitation. This incredible sapphire wave occurs twice a year. Have you witnessed it yet?

    Puzzle Exchange - Sudoku

    Now that all the summer scales are squared away, we’ll be exchanging… SUDOKU!! Sudoku puzzles are very popular on HOL, popping up in activities and assignments for classes. The rules for completing a classic Sudoku are easy to grasp: every row, column, and 3x3 “box” contains all of the digits from 1 to 9. Now, there are several different variations of Sudokus available, including puzzles where the numbers are replaced by letters or images. Here is an example SLYTHERIN Sudoku: The puzzle has been around since the 19th century, appearing in French newspapers. Puzzle books featured Sudokus since 1979, but with the name “Number Place.” The Japanese puzzle company Nikoli made the puzzle popular, giving it the name Sudoku meaning “single number.” You can find Sudokus on many sites, such as this one. Post your puzzles below along with the following information: Title or theme (optional) Type of Sudoku (if applicable) How to submit the solution (E-mail, Dungeons PM, HOL message, etc.) Each puzzle you make is worth 10 scales. Solving someone else’s puzzle earns you 5 scales. You are allowed to post and/or solve multiple puzzles, but keep in mind that the maximum number of scales you can earn per month from Puzzle Exchange is 50 scales. Please remember to edit your post when other people solve your puzzle(s) so they can receive their scales.

    Hogwarts Houses

    The cooperative genre fits Hufflepuff because the games require good communication and patience. (But NOT a cooperative game that is as difficult to win as Pandemic.) Picking Hogwarts Battle is a little too obvious, so I'll go with The Big Book of Madness. The players in The Big Book of Madness are also students at a magic school. They must work together to defeat monsters that they have accidentally let loose. Each player has their own deck of elements, but can choose to share resources with everyone. Danger can escalate quickly, but it is possible to keep everything under control by working together.

    Hogwarts Houses

    A couple weeks ago, the newsfeed on my phone suggested an article titled: 5 Modern Muggle Board Games We Think Hufflepuffs Would Love. At the time, the list for Gryffindors was also up. I waited for the ones for Ravenclaws and Slytherins. I haven't actually played most of the games on the Gryffindor and Slytherin lists, though I have heard of some of them. Bluffing seems to be a common theme in the games mentioned for Slytherins. If you had to choose one board game for each Hogwarts house, which one would you pick and why? It's okay if you don't have one for each house, you can post what you have and come back later!
