This Week's Contest:
While I agree that Risk is a Slytherin game, I think Monopoly is actually more right for Slytherin. Risk involves a heavily element of luck; if you continuously roll low numbers, it doesn’t matter how cunningly your plan it or how ambitious and ruthless you are, you’re going to lose. Monopoly, to me, involves a lot more calculation to know where to buy property to get the most bang for your buck, how to negotiate with people to get what you want, and knowing when you need to team up with someone to take down an opponent. But maybe that’s just how we play Monopoly
While he does have Slytherin tendencies, he was put into Gryffindor because of his temper and violent means to achieve what he wanted. Slytherin villains generally do their plans in stealth, while Hades’ plan involved using very noticible Titans to take over Olympus.
For me, he just has such a bold personality, there was no other way to go. He’s loud, brash, and doesn’t really care how the others view him. Most Slytherin villains have a sort of air about them, as though they feel they are destined to rule, a sort of high and mighty stink about them. He doesn’t restrain himself to fit the ideals of what a god should be like. He’s big and loose with his motions and loud and joking with his speech, as if the reason he should win is because “hey I’m awesome” and not the “I deserve this” attitude most Slytherin villains seem to have.
