Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments Woo Hoo, a new round of bingo! I'm located in Texas. I'm not so great at the naming thing, but here's a few ideas.

Ferocious Five
Fantastic Five
Five by Six
Five Voracious Readers
Number Five is Alive!
Freaky Five
Fifth Wheel

Can't wait for this new round to start!


message 7: by Lina (new)

Lina Hi Diane! I'm in Australia. I missed the last round, so really looking forward to this one! Have you played before?

I quite like Fifth Wheel from your list.

Here are some other ideas:
High Fivers
Fresh Funky Femmes
Book-deprived Five
Five Will Thrive!

Umm, that's all I can think of.


Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments Yay, I was feeling lonely over here. Welcome CaroB! Yes, I've played 4 times previously.


message 9: by Lina (new)

Lina Oh good, so if there's anything I've forgotten you can refresh my memory. I've only played once before, for round 3 or 4, I think.


message 10: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments I'll be happy to, but the game is pretty easy. The hardest part is usually choosing a team name. Hopefully someone will want to be team captain. I'm not online enough to keep up with it.


message 11: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Hello! How is everyone? Excited to get the game started?

I'm in Illinois. This will be my fifth time playing. (I missed Round 1.) I've been a captain one time before. I don't mind doing it again, unless someone else really wants to do it. (I'm captaining another team in another game in another group.)

Anyone new to Bingo?

As for names, I'm trying to think of something witchy. Ya know, pentagrams and stars have five points.... I don't know.... That's all I've got now.

I like the suggestions, CaroB and Diane. Way more than I could come up with.


message 12: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 12, 2012 07:46PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Ok. I think I've got a couple of ideas, but they may be a little.... odd, I guess....?

I look up five on Wikipedia....

First name is...

The Elusive Quintessence
- Quintessence, meaning 'fifth element', refers to the elusive fifth element that completes the basic four elements (water, fire, air, and earth)

When you click the link for quintessence, it lead to aether, which the ancient Greeks believed was what the gods breathed and where they lived.

So another name could be....

Goddesses of the Aether
- The word αἰθήρ (aithēr) in Homeric Greek means "pure, fresh air" or "clear sky", imagined in Greek mythology to be the pure essence where the gods lived and which they breathed, analogous to the air breathed by mortals (also personified as a deity, Aether, the son of Erebus and Nyx). It is related to αἴθω "to incinerate"[2], also intransitive "to burn, to shine" (related is the name Aithiopes (Ethiopians)), meaning "people with a burnt (black) visage".

That second sentence above with things like, incinerate and burn, made me think of....

The Fiery Phoenixes

That's all I've got for now... I think I was thinking too hard...


message 13: by Kate (new)

Kate (ficthoughts) | 460 comments Hi guys :) I'm Kate and I'm also from Australia.
I played in the last two rounds of Bingo and think I've got the hang of it now.

I'm terrible at coming up with names.

From the ones mentioned so far I really like
Fifth Wheel and
The High Fivers

The Fiery Phoenixes also appeals to me but that might just be because of the mad Harry Potter fan that lives inside me.


message 14: by Lina (new)

Lina Hi Alyssa, I'm all good for you being captain. I'm actually moderating a team game in one of my other groups, so would rather not captain for this round.

Hiya Kate :-)

My top three so far for names would be
Quintessence (without the Elusive)
Fifth Wheel and
High Fivers.


message 15: by Heather (Heatso) (new)

Heather (Heatso) (hyperweather) | 68 comments Hi everyone I am from California :) This is my first time participating in a group challenge, and I'm really looking forward to it! I'm good with any name :)


message 16: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments *cheers for Heather* Yay! A first-timer! We all hope you enjoy Bingo as much as we do. And feel free to ask any questions you have. We are here to help. :-D


message 17: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 13, 2012 10:24PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments *looks around* Anyone seen, Cathy?

*yells* Cathy! Come out and play! :-D

(I'm gonna try to send her a message....)

*points at self* Another mad Harry Potter fan right here. :-)


message 19: by Lina (new)

Lina Hi Heather!


message 20: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 13, 2012 10:35PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Message to Cathy. ✔ Sent.

(I'm gonna have to nickname her 'Catchy' if she lets me. For some reason every time I try to type Cathy, I always type 'Catchy' and then have to backspace and fix it. No joke.)


message 21: by Heather (Heatso) (new)

Heather (Heatso) (hyperweather) | 68 comments Can I just say when I was checking my notifications and Alyssa's picture was the one showing for this thread, that I got super excited haha... I could get used that :P

Also another huge HP fan here and The Fiery Phoenixes does sound very HP'ish


message 22: by Heather (Heatso) (new)

Heather (Heatso) (hyperweather) | 68 comments I've also been busy making a list of books that I know I won't stick to...


message 23: by Kate (new)

Kate (ficthoughts) | 460 comments I've been making a list of books too - but I know that I'm terrible at keeping to plans.

I have over a hundred books on my bookshelves right now that I haven't read yet...

But every day when I read good reviews on here I get the urge to go out and buy another book or dozen...

Only 100? I've got 598 according to goodreads and I just bought six more today as Half Price Books was having a Grand Re-opening sale.


message 25: by Lina (last edited Sep 14, 2012 04:47PM) (new)

Lina Hey Guys,

Are we all decided on Alyssa as the captain, or does anyone else want to throw in? And am I right in thinking the team name choices are between The Fiery Phoenixes, Fifth Wheel and High-Fivers?
Don't mean to be a nag, just would be great to see a name on top of the team thread :-)


message 26: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments Sure, I'm fine with Alyssa being team captain and any of the names are fine with me.


message 27: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 14, 2012 06:01PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Well, still nothing from Cathy.... I'm gonna have to message one of our sneaky ninjas about it.

Looks like I'm captain. That's one item checked off our list.

So, we've got three names choices, and I'm cool with any of them, as are a couple of us.

We kind of need to pick just one. I was trying to make up some crazy combination of all three, but I can't seem to make Fifth Wheel fit in it.

I came up with The High-Fiving, Fiery Phoenixes.

Wait! I think I fit all three together.... The Fifth-Wheeling, High-Fiving, Fiery Phoenixes.... Or maybe... 5th-Wheelin', High-5in', Fiery Phoenixes as a shortened version.

I know.... I'm crazy....


message 28: by Lina (new)

Lina LOL!! You are crazy :-) That's a great thing to have in a captain!

I'll cast my vote for High-Fivers then. Sounds confident that we'll win, which I think has to be a good thing :-D


message 29: by Kate (last edited Sep 14, 2012 08:04PM) (new)

Kate (ficthoughts) | 460 comments Alyssa for captain - sounds good to me :)

I'll second the High-Fivers.
As much as I like all of Alyssa's fantastically crazy hybrid names... I like the simplicity of the High-Fivers. And I like the optimism and confidence about it that CaroB mentioned :)


message 30: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Galloway | 138 comments Sorry I didn't check in sooner. I have played the last two rounds so I think I'm good with the rules.
High Fivers sounds good to me and I am very glad some offered to be the captain. I ended up the captain in another game just because I was the last one to say "not it" :) So thank you Alyssa!


message 31: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 15, 2012 04:59PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Hello, Cathy! We were just worried about you. Good to see that you're here.

Oh.....the "Not It" game.... So not fun..... Lol.

Off to claim myself as your fearless leader and declare that our name is the High Fivers.

Wait! Hyphen --> High-Fivers

or no Hyphen --> High Fivers

Since we need to make this decision super difficult.....

Thanks for falling on the grenade.

I don't think it matters, but most of the time when people listed it as their vote, there was a hyphen in it.

Ok.... If I'm like this with the first shelf..... I might get crazier later.... :-D

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Oh.... Side note.... Remember back when Heather mentioned my sexy icon picture... I picked it out for the last round of Bingo. My team was called Seven Sexy Sins. Plus, those are the guys that are in that movie called Magic Mike. I haven't seen it, but I heard delicious things from a friend.


message 42: by Kate (new)

Kate (ficthoughts) | 460 comments Magic Mike is on my list of movies to rent when it's out on DVD.

I think I'll be reading Frostbite for my kick ass heroine book. I just started the series at the end of the last round of bingo.


message 43: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments I really liked the Vampire Academy series. Hope you enjoy Frostbite!


message 44: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments So.... Do I go with a Kick-Ass Heroine that I already know and love?
Pure (Covenant, #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout One Grave at a Time (Night Huntress, #6) by Jeaniene Frost River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs The Laughing Corpse (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #2) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Or do I pick a new one to fall in love with?
Storm Born (Dark Swan, #1) by Richelle Mead Nightshade (Nightshade, #1) by Andrea Cremer Obsidian (Lux, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Well, those are my choices. I'm currently reading something for another challenge elsewhere, so I guess I don't have to decide right this second.


message 45: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments I vote River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs , but then Mercy is one of my favorites and I've only read 2 others on your list.


message 46: by Heather (Heatso) (last edited Sep 15, 2012 07:36PM) (new)

Heather (Heatso) (hyperweather) | 68 comments Magic Mike is definitely a fun movie, my group got their early and had to wait outside a bit and the usher people had fun with us as we were walking in (around a whole bunch of parents waiting with screaming kids to watch Brave, I think some of the moms looked envious :P)

I can't decide between
Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1) by Susan Ee Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) by Chloe Neill

Of course neither which I own and I have a whole bunch that I do own, but where is the fun in that? (edited to add- Although I see that Some Girls Bite is now $12.99 on the kindle!! so that might have made my decision for me)

I haven't read any of those yet, but there are definitely a few on my to read list


message 48: by Kate (new)

Kate (ficthoughts) | 460 comments I loved River Marked. Mercy is one of my all time favourite heroines.

Angelfall and Some Girls Bite are both on my to-read list. So many books... so little time...


message 49: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments I liked Some Girls Bite and will probably read book 4 - Hard Bitten for the Free Space.


message 50: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Aahh!!! Some Girls Bite!!!! I LOVE that series!! Merit is definitely kick-ass. Book 7 is out in February, and I can't wait!!
