Disclaimer: This walkthrough will feature the gameplay from the perspective of a Year 2 student. Since the adventure is available for students of Year 2 and above, the star and attribute requirements for certain tasks might be different for you, depending on the year you’re in.
When you arrive, you will get to interact with some of the characters and see what they have to say.
You will approach Penny and Merula and ask if either of them has a clue about Dumbledore’s announcement.
Penny will say that they don’t know why the Headmaster asked everyone to gather, but she will be fairly sure it’s something nice.
Merula, on the other hand, won’t be too sure about it. Your Hufflepuff friend will point out that Professor Dumbledore looks very happy, which is why she is optimistic about his announcement. Still, the Most Powerful Witch at Hogwarts will be fairly sure that is not the case.
Penny will be curious to hear your opinion on the matter. You can choose whether you want to side with her or Merula. If you like Penny, it is recommended to agree with her. If you like Merula, you should probably side with her. Also, this choice will have a slight impact on some of the following dialogue.
Shortly after, the Headmaster will start his announcement. He will say that a celebration of Teacher Appreciation will take place during the following days.
Your previous choice will take effect on the following lines of dialogue.
Professor Dumbledore will add that this celebration will also serve to specially honor Professor Minerva McGonagall.
Professor McGonagall will be surprised by this announcement. The Headmaster will kindly point out it is part of a tradition. According to him, it’s Professor McGonagall’s turn to be honored during this celebration.
Professor Dumbledore will then continue his announcement. Listening to him requires earning five stars within an hour. Only one star is needed to pass.
If you are aiming to save as much energy as possible, it is recommended to earn a single star and wait until the timer runs out.
However, if you want to earn some additional rewards and a chance for Chocolate Frogs, you should fully complete this task. Bear in mind there’s a bonus progress action linked to Professor Snape.
The Headmaster will point out there are a lot of students who admire Professor McGonagall. She will feel slightly embarrassed to hear that.
Surprisingly enough, even Professor Snape will insist that she agrees with the Headmaster. And eventually, she will agree. However, she will want to discuss some details about the celebration with Professor Dumbledore.
He will smile at her and nod in approval.
You will notice that the Headmaster looks very excited about this whole celebration. Unfortunately, the Most Powerful Witch at Hogwarts won’t look forward to it.
As for Penny, she will be happy knowing she’ll get a chance to learn more about the professors. Professor Dumbledore will approach you and your friends and say that each one of you will receive a special assignment.
You will also need to make a presentation about the assigned professors. This means that you will receive the rare opportunity to spend some quality time with the professors and get to know them.
Apparently, you will be the one to do a presentation on none other than Professor McGonagall. You will be surprised to hear that.
Professor McGonagall will smile at you and say that your assignment is going to be quite extraordinary. She’ll say that she has something special planned for your interview with her.
Shortly after, Professor McGonagall will ask you to meet her in the Transfiguration classroom. Proceed there when you are ready.
Once you arrive, you will say you’re looking forward to the interview and learning more about Professor McGonagall.
She will say she would like you to learn something from this. After all, she is a teacher, and her main concern is teaching students. She will then point at the wizard chess set on the table.
Professor McGonagall will admit she is quite good when it comes to playing wizard chess. As it seems, you’ll be playing a game as part of your interview.
You’ll ask if that is the special idea she mentioned earlier. The Professor will nod and ask if you ever played wizard chess before. Your answer will depend on whether you played it before or not.
Moments later, your interview with Professor McGonagall will start. To complete this task, you need to earn five stars within three hours. Three stars are required to pass.
There are bonus progress actions linked to your character and Professor McGonagall, which should make this task slightly easier to complete.
Once you are done, you will point out that you haven’t really learned much about her, aside from some of the things you already knew.
You’ll ask if there’s a chance she could tell you more about herself. Professor McGonagall will tell you that asking questions of personal nature isn’t really appropriate. Still, you will try to convince her to tell you more.
In the end, she will let you ask her one more question. You can choose whether you want to ask about her parents or about her arrival at Hogwarts. This choice won’t significantly impact the story. However, it will give you the opportunity to learn more about Professor McGonagall, so feel free to pick the option you want.
Unfortunately, the Professor will only answer one of your questions, so you won’t get to learn much about her past.
You will try to get her to tell you more, but she’ll say that she has important things to take care of. But first, the two of you will start your game of wizard chess.
The Professor will make the first move. After playing for a while, she will admit she’s fascinated by the way you play the game.
You’ll quickly realize that she is a very challenging opponent. She’ll nod and say that you’ll receive some unexpected rewards if you persevere.
The Professor will let you consider your next move and come back later to continue the game and your interview.
Not long after that, Penny will ask you to meet with her in the Courtyard. Proceed there when you are ready. Upon arriving, you will be able to interact with some of the characters by tapping on their speech bubbles.
After greeting your friends, you will notice that everyone is talking about the Teacher Appreciation Celebration.
Penny will say that she is doing a presentation on Professor Snape. Needless to say, she’ll be very happy about it. She’ll ask Merula about her assignment.
Merula will say that she’ll be doing a presentation on Professor Quirrell. By the looks of it, she isn’t too excited about it.
Penny will be slightly envious of you for getting the most interesting assignment. She’ll ask you about your first meeting with Professor McGonagall. There are two options to reply with. This choice won’t have any huge impact on the story, so feel free to pick either option.
You will say that you want to properly honor her in your presentation. Hopefully, you’ll be able to do that.
Penny will suggest talking about everything you’ve learned so far. Perhaps that way, you can help each other make better presentations. You’ll agree with her.
Discussing your assignments requires earning five stars within an hour. One star is needed to pass for Year 2-3 students. Three stars are required to pass for Year 4+ students.
You should easily be able to complete this task with a single energy bar. Also, the only action with bonus progress here is linked to Penny, so focusing on her actions should save you a bit of energy.
You will thank Penny and Merula for talking about their assignments with you. You’ll be quite hopeful about your next session with Professor McGonagall.
You will also tell your friends about McGonagall’s passion for wizard chess. Merula will find that surprisingly odd.
You’ll tell her about what Professor McGonagall said to you during the interview.
In her usual fashion, Merula will laugh about it. According to her, it’s all just a bunch of nonsense. Penny, on the other hand, will disagree with her, saying there’s a lot one can learn about a person by spending time together.
This will give you an interesting idea. Perhaps there is a way for you to learn more about Professor McGonagall.
Merula will be curious to know what you are planning to do. You will tell her you are going to interview the other professors and try to learn more about Professor McGonagall that way.
This will mark the end of Part 1 of A Special Celebration of Hogwarts Teachers. Hit the Collect button to claim your reward. You will receive 300 Coins.
Will the other professors agree to tell you more about Professor McGonagall? And will you learn some interesting things about her? Find out in the next part of this adventure.
