Time for a new game; this one is called Nine Lives!


Here’s how you play:
This game is played in rounds. In each round, everyone will start off with ”Nine Lives”. I’ll ask a question and the first person to answer correctly, keeps their life, everyone else loses a life. The person at the end of each round with the most lives wins that round. (NOTE: There are NINE questions per round)

Example:

Me: These animal are said to have “9 Lives”
You: Cats!
Me: Correct, you still have 9 Lives, the rest of the players in this round have 8.


You may elect to participate or not in each round, but once you sign up for a round, I will count each “non-response” as an incorrect answer and you will lose a life. (So if you know you’re going out of town for a week, don’t sign up for the next round, wait until you come back :D)

Let’s play!

Please let me know if you want to participate in the first round. (Oh, I forgot to mention, each round will consist of NO MORE THAN 9 PLAYERS)

Great! Here's the first question:

★ Mist ☆ Cassidy ★ (rockclimbingirl) | 1012 comments Mod
Howard!


★ Mist ☆ Cassidy ★ (rockclimbingirl) | 1012 comments Mod
Like that's the name he used :P But he said "Their son - he'd be about Dudley's age now, wouldn't he?" "What's his name again? Howard isn't it?"

Mist .:.rockclimbingirl.:. wrote: "Howard!"

Mist got it!!

(He said: "Their son --he'd be about Dudley's age now, wouldn't he?"
She replied: "I suppose so."
He asked: "What's his name again? Howard, isn't it?"
She replied: "Harry. Nasty, common name, if you ask me.")

Jack | 964 comments If someone gets the question wrong, are they the only ones who lose points?

Also, you gave me the point, not Jordan.

think of it like this, it's a video game and we're 9 levels up, when someone answers correctly everyone else loses a level but they stay where the currently are. Make sense?

Yeah, I get that, but what if the person answers incorrectly?

Thanks! It's fixed now.

No, if someone guesses wrong, It will not count towards their score (I don't want to make folks afraid to respond, ya know?), the only time you'll see a change in the scores is when someone answers correctly.

Next Question:

On the first boat ride from the train to the school, which student(s), were in the boat with Harry?



message 37: by Jack (new)

Jack | 964 comments Neville as well?


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Please name EVERYONE that was in the boat with him.

Jack | 964 comments Hermione, Ron, and Hagrid

No, sorry, this is not correct, either.
