British Quidditch Cup Is Main Prize in QuidditchUK’s Own “Taskmaster”

Taskmaster is originally a British comedy panel game show currently broadcast on Channel 4, and that’s where QuidditchUK got the inspiration to create its own version. Registered teams have to fulfill eight different challenges in eight weeks. The prize is the British Quidditch Cup, because the normal in-person British Quidditch Cup was canceled recently.

The Muggle quidditch version is mostly focused on QuidditchUK clubs, but any international team could have registered. The only difference is, if a team from outside the United Kingdom wins, they won’t receive the real British Quidditch Cup because of problems with shipping. Teams had until March 8 to register, which is when the first task started.

 

There is an open white envelope with the instructions for the first task in it. The background is blue.

 

The first challenge was to build and design the new British Quidditch Cup, but teams could only use materials that they had at home. The entire process of making the cup had to be documented, not just the final product. Teams had only one week for the challenge; the deadline was 6:00 a.m. GMT on March 13.

 

 

Every participating team will earn three points per challenge. The team in first place will get another seven points, the team in second place will get another five points, and the team in third place will get another three points. Judges are QuidditchUK volunteers who will be different for every task. Judges will evaluate teams’ creativity, effort, and teamwork and the way in which the process was documented. Any specific criteria for the task that will be judged will be announced in the introduction of the task itself.

 

 

QuidditchUK’s Taskmaster should end the first weekend in May, after the eight tasks. If there is a tie, teams might be invited to an additional final challenge. The tiebreaker challenge will be in the form of a question, and the team with the most accurate answer will win British Quidditch Cup 2021 and get the title of QuidditchUK Taskmaster Champion.
