Harry Potter Edition

The Big Picture

(Inspired by Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)

The students at Hogwarts are in trouble. There are threats to the school behind every corner, and it is up to Harry Potter and his friends to find those threats and eliminate them. But who can they trust? With the ability to change one’s appearance to look like someone else, players have to be careful. In the end, the only thing they can do is go off of their instinct and whatever evidence they can find.

Will Harry Potter and his friends eliminate all the threats to Hogwarts? Or shall the evil forces surrounding Hogwarts succeed in ridding the world of the school once and for all?

The Game

  • Day OneThe main suspects Day One were Charli and Sam. Charli was accused of starting a bandwagon on Sam, while Sam aroused suspicion due to her quick vote withdrawal and quiet behavior. In the end, Sam was eliminated with 11 votes, resulting in the first Team DA fatality.
  • Day Two – Players woke up to find one player eliminated: Lillian, the Back-up Cop for Team DA. Votes ended up spreading out between Charli, Mel, and Rita, but eventually players chose to eliminate Charli who narrowly survived Day One. Charli was also a member of Team DA.
  • Day Three– Day Three started with a blood bath. Between eliminations and disqualifications, six Team DA players were removed from the game. After struggling with votes between Amy and Daphne, a tie came into play and neither player was eliminated.
  • Day Four – During Night Three two more Team DA players were eliminated, including Amy who narrowly avoided elimination during the Day. After going back and forth with discussion revolving around Daphne and Sana, players eventually decided to see if their other main suspect from Day Three truly was guilty and voted Daphne off.
  • Day Five – Players were really confused were to turn after finding FOUR Team DA players eliminated during Night Four. Suddenly those who revealed their Team DA alliance were found dead, and hope was starting to disappear. Votes were spread far and wide, but Team DA were lucky in that with just four votes they were able to eliminate the unaligned SK from the game.
  • Day Six – Finally Team DA caught a break when they awoke on Day Six to find that two baddies were eliminated, and each were from a different team. While players rejoiced in their stroke of luck, they still weren’t sure who to vote for and struggled between two main suspects: Holly and Annie. In the end, they chose to eliminate Holly. In a twist, Holly wasn’t eliminated but instead was revealed as Harry Potter the Unlynchable.
  • Day Seven – It seems the Bookish Games Gods are finally shining upon Team DA. After waking to the news of another Death Eater death from Night Six, Team DA pulled together to eliminate another Death Eater by the end of Day Seven. Can it be, are they finally making their comeback?!
  • Day Eight – Team DA awoke to find only one death after Night Seven. It was finally revealed that their cop Laura was actually a Paranoid Cop whose results were of no real help. With little else to go on, players mainly focused on name reveals to lead their thoughts, but even that led to only more confusion when two people admitted to having similar roles…
  • Day Nine – Team DA lost a huge player with the Night elimination of Miranda. Without her, Day Nine was quiet with players only managing to make a vote when threatened by the deadline. Luckily for them, they made the right vote and eliminated Lord Voldemort himself.
  • Day Ten – The day started with another DA casualty (Briana) and players were at a lost trying to figure out who was evil, how many people were evil and what they should do next. Votes didn’t start until the last twenty-four hours and they were split between three different people, but somehow Team DA managed to target the right person: Lauren, the Dementor Roleblocker, was voted off.
  • Game Over – With Team DA’s vote during Day Ten voting off the last Mafia member, it was revealed the next Day that they had won the game!
