Default Gobstones Club Championship Match: Ravenclaw vs. Slytherin
Cheesy Mac

Gobstones Club Rules

Hello and welcome to the Gobstones Club! Gobstones is a magical game similar to marbles & petanque played by Muggles, except that the balls spit up (gob) a foul smelling liquid in the face of the opposing player when they loose a point! The version of Gobstones we will be playing this term is Jack Stone, in which you must roll your Gobstone closer to the Jack Stone than your opponent.

House Teams: Each student will serve as a representative of their House and have the opportunity to participate in the Gobstones Tournament. There will be no set number of members on the team, and thus, NO TRYOUTS. Everyone gets to play if they wish to do so (even Mods and Quidditch team members) by choosing to answer for their House whenever a question is asked! Also, there are no Ďpositions,í so any person can answer any question at any time.

Tournament: The tournament consists of three matches, two preliminary and one final Championship match. The matches will be open in their own threads and will last for approximately 1-2 weeks, which is plenty of time to allow for people in different time zones and with differing schedules to be involved. The first two matches will run simultaneously in different threads. The third will be played a short time after those matches conclude and last for about a week.

Format & Scoring: These matches will be played using a question-answer format, similar to that used for Quidditch matches in the School RPG. Questions will be categorized by academic subjects that include: Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Astronomy, Care of Magical Creatures, Current Events (pertains to Hogwarts, A History for the School RPG), Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Divination, Flying and Quidditch, History of Magic (includes Harry's time at Hogwarts and anything prior), Muggle Studies, Potions, and Transfiguration.

Each match is divided into eight rounds. Each round consists of three questions of varying challenge levels Ė Easy, Moderate, and Difficult, and varying subjects, with some questions combining subjects. Each question will be asked to BOTH Houses simultaneously in a head-to-head situation. Each house gets ONE CHANCE ONLY to answer the question, so only one player (presumably, whoever gets there first and thinks they know the answer) should answer from each House. (Please do not post the same answer multiple times from different players of the same house. Answers from the same house posted 3 or more minutes apart will be penalized so make sure you refresh when necessary.) The first House to answer correctly will get their ball closer to the Jack Stone than their opponent and earn one point for that round.

If a house answers and the opposing house believes the answer to be incorrect, that opposing house has the opportunity to answer the question correctly (provided that they have not already given another answer.) If the first House is incorrect and the second House is correct, the ball belonging to the first house will be "knocked" out of the circle and out of play. The second house's ball will be considered closest to the jack stone, thus earning them one point for that question. If both houses get the question wrong on their first attempt, both stones will roll out of the circle, out of play, and there will be no score for that question.

The House with the most points (best out of three) for each round will win that round. Each subsequent round will be played the same way until 8 rounds have been completed. The house with the most won rounds will have rolled their gobstone closest to the jack stone and won the match. In the event of a tie, either within a round or between rounds, there will be a tie-breaker question or round of questions, respectively.

Example: Here is what a question from a round may look like:

Quote:
Round 1: Question 1
Subject: Ancient Runes
Level: Easy

Question: Which rune is known as the Rune of Chance, Mystery, and Science?
Now say, Slytherin answered first with the following:

Quote:
Perth
Since this answer is correct, my reply (as Club advisor) might look like this

Quote:
The Slytherin player rolls the stone at just the right speed and angle, putting their gobstone as close to the jack stone as you can get! Ravenclaw's stone overshoots and rolls out of the circle! ٍSlytherin's stone spits up that foul-smelling nastiness into the face of the Ravenclaw player!

Round 1 Score
Question 1 - Slytherin

Match Score
Slytherin: 0 roundsRavenclaw: 0 rounds
Responsibilities: All members on each team are expected to act with decorum both in the school RP and on the SS site. Any abuse or perceived unsportsmanlike conduct behavior by any member of a House (player or not) can result in House Point deduction, detention, banning from the Gobstones club, loss of the match, and/or expulsion from the site.

Infractions and Penalties: Editing your post is not allowed. If you are caught editing your answer to a question during a match, the opposing team will automatically be awarded the point for that question, regardless of their answer.

Professor Shackleton called the students to gather around the Gobstones court that she had constructed in the Arithmancy classroom. She explained quickly, "This match will be played as both of your preliminary matches were played. In order to win a point, you must roll your Gobstone closer to the Jack Stone than your opponent. Please read the rules before we begin and be very familiar with them. Thank you and let's have some fun!"

Ravenclaw and Slytherin start the match off strong with two equally well-played rolls. This one is going to require measuring tape! With just a mere millimeter advantage, Ravenclaw is closer to the Jack Stone and wins the point!

Slytherin enters their gobstone into the circle and lands resting right up against the Jack Stone. Ravenclaw responds with a well-aimed stone, but doesn't use enough force. Slytherin wins the point!

It seems clear that this is going to be a tough, neck-and-neck match with each house team responding to the point before it! Ravenclaw launches a perfectly positioned Gobstone that Slytherin can't beat! Ravenclaw wins the point and the round!

Slytherin's first roll of the round is skillfully placed near the Jack Stone, leaving only a quarter of an inch for Ravenclaw to sneak in. Ravenclaw attempts but cannot edge them out. Slytherin wins the point!

Slytherin takes a chance on an awkward angle and approach, but the risk pays off because their stone lands three-quarters of an inch closer to the Jack Stone than does Ravenclaw's! Slytherin wins the point and the round!

Slytherin takes another chance by lobbing the stone into the circle. Despite it landing over two inches away, Ravenclaw's falls even shorter! Slytherin wins the first point of the third round!

Slytherin picks up momentum as the second turn of the third round ends favorably for them! Ravenclaw can't seem to get their gobstone as close to the Jack Stone as necessary! One point to Slytherin!

Life Path: Hermione Jean Granger born Sept 19 1979

Sept = 9
19 = 1+9=10 => 1+0= 1
1+9+7+9= 26 => 2+6= 8

9+1+8=18 => 1+8= 9

NINE (9): Her path will lead her to understand the interconnectedness of all things. It's a path of universal love that learns compassion and tolerance. Once she's learned this lesson, she'll move on to the next phase - tolerance for all and the importance of caring for each other. She's a born healer and her healing may take the form of writing, composing, painting, or sculpting - reaching others by truly connecting to them. She'll be learning how to let go, to surrender herself for greater good. Career/vocation options include the arts, international business, education, and health - any line of work designed to help, heal, or humanize.

Slytherin dominates round three, sweeping all three turns! It's almost as if there is some magnetic attraction between Slytherin's gobstones and the Jack Stone! Amazing!
