As April ended, Hogwarts breathed a sigh of relief. The prank wars were over, and no more pranks disturbed it’s halls (for now, at least).

Four teams of two competed for the title and honour of being the next prankster-in-chiefs, and to continue Fred and George Weasley’s legacy. The war was brutal, filled with new inventions such as Yuck-yuck sweets and Mida’s delights.

And so, it has come time to count up the ingenuity of the contestants, their ability to work together, and the magnificence of their pranks, and declare

THE WINNER OF PRANK WARS 2018

But first, let’s see those who competed:

Team Gail Allen and Kendra Givens

As valiantly as they tried, these wonderful Ravenclaw contestants were sadly, ganged up on by the other three teams in the first week. And yet, they were off to a great start and finished with 15 points.

Congratulations Team Allen and Givens! You will receive 10 beans each.

Next we had another Ravenclaw team consisting of

Team Maxim Trevelyan and Prof. Gustavo Flores

This team truly worked well together, earning TWO perfect scores in week 3 and 4. Sadly, in the first two weeks they were pranked with a slowness solution which hindered their ability to participate in the war. Nonetheless, they were very close to the winning team with 78 points.

Congratulations Team Trevelyan and Flores! You will receive 30 beans each.

Now we introduce the third team,

Team Will Lestrange and Shiloh Adlar

This is a team of Quidditch rivals, but great partners in crime on the pranking field. Their impressive logical skills put them right into second place, and together they earned an impressive 79 points!!

Congratulations Team 2.9! You will receive 40 beans each.

And finally, the winning team,

Team Arianna Stonewater and Prof. Tarma Amelia Black

While this prank wars was a close event, this team truly shone with their creativity and wonderful pranks. Their logic skills were great too, solving puzzles thrown at them with great speed. In total, they earned a round number of 80 points.

Congratulations Team Arianna and Tarma (how they labelled each of their submissions) and you will be receiving 60 beans each.

But we’re not done

Many of the Prank Wars contestants also went against each other in a battle of wits and trivia.

Arianna Stonewater, Prof. Tarma Amelia Black, Maxim Trevelyan, and Shiloh Adlar all earned a perfect 66 points (and beans) for their trivia. Will Lestrange also was impressive and earned 48 points (and beans). Prof. Gustavo Flores also was quick to answer and earned 34 points (and beans).
