This is a fun game I've played in other groups and thought we could give it a try here with a little twist.

How to play:

I'll say what I want to see on the cover of a book, and the first person to find a cover that matches the request posts the book cover. Then they post what they want to see on a cover. The thing requested can be anything, an item, a word, even a color. The twist is that the book should be a cozy mystery. Check your GR and physical shelves first. If you can't find a book there, check anywhere else you want to. But be careful, playing this game may lead to adding more books to your tbr. ☺

Example:
I say: I want a cover with a house on it, you post Fatal Fixer-Upper (A Do-It-Yourself Mystery, #1) by Jennie Bentley . Then you say: A cover with a murder weapon in the title, and someone posts Pick Your Poison (A Yellow Rose Mystery, #1) by Leann Sweeney . They request a cover with the color orange, so the next person might post Slugfest (Dirty Business Mystery #4) by Rosemary Harris , and so on and so on...

So let's get started and have fun with it! I'll start.

I want to see a cover with a book on it.....GO!!!!!

Not really a fiesta, but tell me that dog hasn't been doing a little partying :)

Since I don't think this really qualifies, I'll let someone else find a better fiesta, and if they don't, Emily can show us one and go again.

☯Emily  Ginder | 1408 comments Actually, I think it qualifies! What do you want us to look for now?

Jennifer - I hilighted it so it'll be more noticeable :)

Looking for some of these items is harder than it seems!

If no one has found an oil lamp by 5pm est Friday, please have pity on us and post the cover :) Then pick something else.


message 33: by ☯Emily (last edited Sep 21, 2012 04:35AM) (new)

☯Emily  Ginder | 1408 comments It might not be an oil lamp, but it is lighting from mid 1800's, so it ain't electricity!

Look for a cover with the word Jane on it (for Jane Austen, if you want bonus points.)

I was answering the oil lamp cover question as I thought the that the gaslights weren't considered an oil lamp.

Randa had the first oil lamp, so a snow globe is the current request. Now, if someone cand find a snowglobe and two cats on the same cover, that would be great!

Sorry Jane, I should have been blaming Jennifer. ☺

Out of curiousity, what book did you have in mind for the wicked oil lamp? I think we all need to know.
