Forum Game Beta Test

@HPWULola Challenged me to come up with a forum game, never one to turn down a challenge.

Rules:

  1. This game relies on the honor system.
  2. You must post the name of a foundable you returned today that starts with the same letter as the previous foundable ends. For example, if I post Erkling which ends with 'g' you can post Giant's Helm. The next person would have to post a foundable that starts with 'M'.
  3. If someone posts at the same time you do, first one counts. (If you're not first do us a favor and edit your post with a cool slang word we invent for the game that means, "Ack! Someone has beaten me to the punch.")
  4. No duplicates.
  5. Scoring
    1. Threat points (1 - low, 2 - medium, ...)
    2. First return doubler
    3. Keeping score is crazy
    4. It will be too hard.
  6. Winner - you win (or lose I haven't decided yet) if you post a foundable that can't be followed.
  7. Cheating - if you cheat you must get us a shrubbery (Oh, sorry, wrong franchise.)

I will start:

A foundable I returned today for the first time was Albus Dumbledore.

Emergency = 5 points doubled for first time returned,

10 points for Hufflepuff.

    You kind of gave this one to me in your example...but I saw a bunch of them today at dusk.

    ERKLING

    (some amount of score I couldn’t really keep track of) for Ravenclaw! 😜

    Given that there's only a single foundable starting with an E (as far as I know - excluding Oddities), I'll go with

    Erumpent

    Tonks! Sort of cheating, since her first name is Nymphadora, but I am using her preferred name, so there's that. 3 points for Slytherin.

    Does it count if I go to sleep VERY late, and I caught something past midnight?

    Because if so, then I caught a Thestral :)

    Judge says yes to very late last night but thestral doesn't start with l

    Or we need to toss troll, mountain.

    Nice. @JulieJubz's find definitely beats mine since I bent the rules. Thestrals are beautiful!

    @Osprey1 Oh! That's so weird, @Acumen's reply didn't show up for me even after I posted mine! That's why I was still replying to the one before that, haha. My bad ^^;;

    I'll go with Luna then!! Because I caught both her versions today (the new lion head one is SO adorable!!) Unless that doesn't count since it's Young Luna or quidditch fan Luna.... hmmm.. I think I'm very bad at this game XD

    Accepting Luna as "Luna Lovegood" in all variations we are now at 'GD'.

    Go!

    Edit: Edited for confusion due to lack of caffeine.
