Harry Potter Trivia Prep

Harry Potter Trivia Night | Gaming | Game Night | DoublexJump.com

This past weekend we were slated to go to Harry Potter Trivia with some friends of ours. While I was unable to make it to the actual event, I did join the group for some prep the night before. The prep itself didn’t last too long in favor of another game, we’ll admit, but it was all in good fun.

We had the intentions of “studying” Harry Potter trivia before the big event or just having a general Harry Potter game night. We had the first two movies playing in the background with Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit, Harry Potter Code Names, and Cards Against Muggles at the ready.

We at least opened the Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit box, but decided that the questions were a bit too simple, especially compared to a list of random trivia questions that I had found with the help of Google on my phone. After we decided to ignore the trivial pursuit questions — and we had pretty much eaten up most of the snacks — we broke out a deck of Uno cards.

The trivia was fun, even if the Trivial Pursuit game was a bit too easy. Kris found the random trivia online and it was all obscure details that none of us, except one friend who took Kris’s place on the team, knew. Needless to say, we were pretty happy to have him on board with us.

Yes, glad you guys got someone who knew what he was doing to replace me! There came a point where I’m pretty sure another friend told me, “I like how you’re only asking him the questions now rather than leaving it open for all of us.” This is the same friend who was also probably the most polite during our many games of Uno that dominated the rest of the night.

Yes, after an hour or so of trivia, we ended up breaking out the Uno cards and playing that for about three hours or so. It was a good night and a long night of Uno. I’m not sure where that came from, but with six people, it was an interesting few rounds of the game.

I got completely screwed over at one point in the game, but it was brilliantly done that I couldn’t be mad. It was a chain reaction of the “pick up two” card. I put one down for the next person, but they put another one down to make the third person pick up four cards, and it escalated until it went around the table and back to me. I had to pick up a whopping twelve cards, but it was definitely a great twist in the game.

That was the funniest part of the whole night, I think. At one point you had 25 cards in your hand and I’m pretty sure that’s close to half of the deck. It was a good night by all with fun company and great food. Plus, we were well prepared for the Harry Potter trivia the following night. (If you’d like to know how the actual trivia event went, you can check out the post on my personal blog here.)

  1. For a few years, Steff and I used to meet up with a few friends for a monthly Classic Simpsons Trivia Night at a bar in the city (seasons 1-10 for those who care what constitutes classic to the organizers). They would show 3 episodes a night, and have questions in between episodes. It was quite the thrill to watch those episodes with hundreds of hardcore fans who could recite every episode line-for-line. The trivia was REALLY hard too! I consider myself to be a fan and I smoke many online trivia challenges, but would be lucky to get 3 out of 50 right here. Others we’ve taken there that identify as hardcore Simpson’s fans were also surprised by how difficult the questions were. Even so, some teams did incredibly well! Also, every team came up with great Simpson’s references for their team names.
    It was a lot of fun, but we eventually stopped going. You had to get there over an hour in advance just to secure a seat, so we’d have to rush from work to get there. The food at the bar was also bad. It was also located in a weird part of the city that was hard to commute out of. Was definitely an “era” of our life though lol

    1. That sounds like so much fun though. I’m glad you guys stuck with it for a while despite the food and difficulty. As long as you’re in good company. 🙂
      Where we went, the food was really good though it was in the city which I tend to avoid because I don’t know my way around there and no one knows how to drive. So I doubt we’ll be going back anytime soon.
