Earn Points For Your Hogwarts House

Earn points for your Hogwarts House

Late in 2015 I started making videos for this site's YouTube channel. As I was making one of the early videos I asked a question about whatever I was talking about, and told people to write the answer in the comment section. I also said to tell me their Hogwarts Houses so I could award 10 points for any right answers.

That was an idea that came to me as I made the video because I thought it would be fun to award points in the comments, but then someone asked if I was actually keeping track of the points. I wasn't, but I liked the idea. It took me a while to figure out how to incorporate points with my website but I've finally figured out how to keep track. What you see below is the point tracker, and I update it anytime someone gives a correct answer to one of my questions.

You can help your House by answering questions. So, where do you go to find these questions? Well, I don't have a specific answer for you. Most of the questions are found in the videos that I make. All the videos can be found on my YouTube channel, but sometimes I add the videos here on the site. Or, I might ask a question on one of my social media sites (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc.).

You are welcome to provide an answer to my questions on any of these sites. Please make sure that you include the House you belong to so I can award points accordingly, and you can see the status of points either on this page or on the sidebar of my site.

I don't have plans at this time to do an of end of school House Cup, but maybe I will someday in the future. Until then, here is a question to get you started (I will change the question every now and then): 

What physical ailment was the dragon hidden away deep in Gringotts afflicted with ?

      Yes! That was the answer to my question about what was left of Peter Pettigrew when it looked like he was killed by Sirius Black. 10 points for Slytherin!

    The dragon was blind. But you said ‘afflicted with’ so I suppose you mean how he was trained to expect pain, causing fear, at the sound of clankers. Gryffindor 🙂

    I think he saw that Peter was alive? He knew Peter could transform into a rat and he saw the picture of Ron holding Scabers (Peter) in a picture of Cornelius Fudge’s newspaper?? Thats’s when he decided to escape through his dog form??So the item is a newspaper?? Sorry, I’m not sure. I’m a Gryffindor.

    He saw Peter Pettigrew escaping after he blew the street apart, killing many muggles, and cutting of his finger.
    Old yet wise Ravenclaw.

    Peter completely severed his right index finger when Sirius Black cornered him about Lily and James Potter’s deaths, blowing up a street, killing several Muggle witnesses and transforming into a rat and escaping

    The only thing left of Pettigrew was his finger which the Order of Merlin put in a box. I’m in Gryffindor.

    The only thing left over was the Marauders Map

      That’s not the answer I was looking for, but you are right that Peter Pettigrew was part of the Marauders Map, which remained after his supposed death. So… 10 points for Hufflepuff! You can earn another 10 points if you can tell me what part of his body was found after he appeared to have been killed.

    Remus Lupin knew how it worked because he, Sirius Black, Wormtail, and James Potter made it together. That’s why it says Messers, Moony Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs, are pleased to present the Marauders Map. Im in Gryffindor.

    Molly Weasley’s greatest fear was the death of her family. In the fifth book, there was a boggart at Number 12 Grimmauld Place and Molly was unsuccessfully attempting to get rid of it. She was sobbing and trying to use Riddikulus as it changed into dead forms of each of her family members, as well as Harry before Remus came in and got rid of it. I’m from Ravenclaw! 🙂

    The Alohamora spell unlocks any unenchanted door or window. Hermione used the charm in book/movie 1 when they were running to not get caught by Argus Filch. It is also able to unlock doors locked by the locking spell, Colloportus. I’m a Ravenclaw. 🙂
