A Million More Pages - Hogwarts: Quidditch World Cup - Finished

Quidditch World Cup hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.

Unfortunately this was not as much fun as it seemed and it was difficult to just chose books from one specific list to read. Some people read tons of books for this challenge, I only managed 4 books for each round. My team, The Radiant Ravens, lost both our games.

➻➻Each time requires 7 players
3 Chasers
2 Beaters
1 Keeper
1 Seeker

➻You can sign up as a team, or individual. I will try to keep Housemates together, but we may have to do a few mixed group to accommodate everyone.
➻You do NOT need to say which type of player you are until the first round is posted. This way you can make sure you place members in positions that best suit them.
➻If you post as a team, please say who your team captain is.
➻If you post as an individual, please post if you wouldn't mind being a team captain.

➻➻How To Play:

➻Chasers score goals with the Quaffle:
The Quaffel are books from A certain Listopia list, to score a point, post which number from the list, the book, rating and small review. °1 Galleon per book

➻Beaters keep the Bludgers away from their team and hit the Bludgers towards the opposing team:
Bludgers are books fromA certain List from Listopia, to score a point list which number it was on the list, book, rating and small review.°1 Galleon per book.

➻The Keeper guards the goal post, and attempts to stop the other players from scoring:
To do this the Keeper must read a book that another player on the other team is reading. Once the book is read, the keeper will score 1 Galleon for their team and take away 1 Galleon from the other team.
It can be any book at any time.
To keep track the Keeper must say which book, and which player is reading or has read it. Also list rating and small review.

➻The Seeker catches the Golden Snitch
To do this the Seeker must look for A certain Color of book. The Seeker will gain 2 Galleons for Each one found. To score, make sure the cover is visible, book, rating and small review.
The Book color must cover most of the book.Ask mods if you are not sure it will work.
➻The players will read as many books as they can within the time frame.
➻All books Must be posted Once you know what book you are reading.BEFORE you start reading. They cannot be counted unless this post has happened first. The Keeper from other team needs to know what you are reading.
➻Players should be able to read at least one book per round.
➻Each Round will last two weeks.
➻Rounds will last until we have ONE winning team.
➻During the Round, positions cannot be changed. But after a round is completed, before the next round starts, You Can switch positions.
➻Sign ups end March 26th
➻Team threads will be set up between March 27th & March 29th...but the sooner you post the teams, the sooner I can get these set up.
➻Once you check into your group, pick a name. Once your name has been picked & all members have checked in, I will set up your Match.
➻Round Matches will also be set up during this time.It will have the information for that current round. You may then pick postions.
➻First round will start April 1st.
➻Each Round is worth 5 points. Winning Team of the Round will get 1 extra point(for 6 pts), and will move to the next round. Last Team standing will earn 5 extra points.(So last round will be worth 10 points for the winner.)
➻Points will be Claimed after a team has been eliminated. So the last two teams will claim their points at the end of the Game.
