It’s time to put your Harry Potter knowledge to the test. On April 16, ASUC SUPERB will be hosting a Harry Potter trivia night. The winning team will receive — drumroll, please — tickets to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. Teams will also have a chance to win prizes through a raffle and costume contest. The event will be hosted at Pappy’s Bar & Grill on Telegraph Avenue from 6 to 8 p.m.

But don’t be fooled — this trivia night won’t be a walk in the park. You’re not going to be asked what house Cedric Diggory was in or what the name of Hermione’s cat was. So we at the Clog compiled a few questions about all things Harry Potter to help you prepare. Can you answer them?
