message 1: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Here's a fun new challenge for you...I knew as soon as I saw it that I *needed* to bring it to SCC!! We borrowed this one from Wendy at The Ultimate Book Club, with permission, of course! :) I changed the rules slightly to work for our group a little better.

As the title suggests, it's based off of the TV show Jeopardy.

The Rules:
* Any book or audio that is over 200 pages long can be used for this challenge.
* The different categories have the requirements of whether it is a book or in the title or the author etc... that I am looking for.
* Once the book has been read you can write your "answer" in the right place for each category.
* You will continue to fill in each category throughout the next 6 months.
* As in the original TV show version, 2 categories will be "Daily Doubles" - this means that you will read 2 different books for the same "question", but you get to choose which 2 you want to read the extra book for. The 2 extras cannot be the same clue, but they CAN be within the same category.

Note: In each category the difficulty progresses from 1 (easiest) to 5 (hardest).

Here is the board:

message 8: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Adele, even if you haven't ever watched Jeopardy, this one should be pretty fun! In the TV show game, the host gives clues for each category and players race to press the buzzer and answer correctly.

In this version, I've given you all the clues, you just need to fill them in with your books like any other scavenger hunt challenge. The "Who is _______" part is just a reference to the original TV show, but isn't necessary to playing this challenge.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions, post away! :) I'd be happy to help and have you join in!

message 16: by Christine (new)

Christine I want to make sure I'm clear on the first category: There have to be the given number of letters in common between the author's first and last name? It can be any letters in the name?

Ex: Ilona Andrews has N and A in common between both names, so I could use that for #2 , while Darynda Jones has only the N in common, and would be used for #1?


message 17: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) No vowels in #2 so that one wouldn't work, Christine.


message 18: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) My question has to do with general guidelines for challenges. Will you accept books that qualify as long as we read more than half of the book after this challenge started?

Welcome to the challenge! For the first category, you've got it pretty much right...for clues 1 and 2, the letters in common can't be vowels (vowels can be used for 3-5). So Ilona Andrews doesn't work (N & A) but Michelle Moran would (M & L). Hope that helps!

Here is what I am confused about

2 categories will be "Daily Doubles" - this means that you will read 2 different books for the same "question", but you get to choose which 2 you want to read the extra book for. The 2 extras cannot be the same clue, but they CAN be within the same category.

So do you mean I could read an additional book for

2. "good feeling" (happy, joyous, neat) but not read 2 additional books for this clue

but I could do instead a book for each of these

2. "good feeling" (happy, joyous, neat)
3. "bad feeling" (angry, jealous, scary)

Zina, regarding the 2 "daily doubles"...you can read up to 1 additional book for each clue/question. So for 2 of them you will have read 2 books. The additional books can't both be for the same clue (so you can't read 3 books for "good feeling" but you CAN read 2 books each for "good feeling" and "bad feeling", or you could choose to read 2 for "good feeling" and 2 for "the year you were born"). Does that clear it up?

Candy, in that instance, could you do the first year you were legally able to get your license (here it's age 16, not sure about everywhere else)? Or if you have a learner's permit, you could do that year as well. If not, I'll keep thinking. :) Welcome to the challenge!

Adele, glad to see you join in!! I've added you to the participants list.

Rosina Sorry but totally confused now. So there 2 daily doubles per category not the whole game?

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Zina wrote: "Sorry but totally confused now. So there 2 daily doubles per category not the whole game?"
There are 2 "daily doubles" for the whole game. To simplify: pick any 2 clues you'd like and read an additional book for them. There are 25 clues, but you will read a total of 27 books.

They can be within the same category if you so choose but they can't be the same clue (meaning you can't read 3 books total for 1 clue...2 clues should have 2 books read while all others will have 1 book).

I feel like I'm not making any sense, lol. Let's say (using your example above) that I choose to do both my daily doubles in the Adjective In The Title category, my post may look like this:

(B) The Adjective in the title
1. "color" adjective or "Shape" (deep, narrow, square)
-- Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy
2. "good feeling" (happy, joyous, neat)
-- A Happy Marriage by Rafael Yglesias
-- The Secret of Joy by Melissa Senate
3. "bad feeling" (angry, jealous, scary)
-- Any Bitter Thing by Monica Wood
-- Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
4. "condition" (famous, rich, helpful) or "time" (late, rapid)
-- Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay
5. "quantity" (abundant, full, heavy) or "touch"(chilly, dusty)
-- So Many Ways to Begin by Jon McGregor

I will read 2 books for clues 2 and 3 as my daily doubles for this game, but just 1 for clues 1, 4 and 5 (and 1 for each clue of the other categories as well).

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) LOL, I'm sure it wasn't you...I have a hard time explaining things clearly sometimes. To be honest, I just woke up when I posted the earlier message so I hadn't had my "morning" coffee, I don't even know if anything I wrote made sense. :)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Glad you got it all figured out, Adele!

Welcome to the challenge Barbara! I know there are a couple doozies in here, I'm gonna have to think hard about my books... :)


message 41: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) I've read one book & just wanted to see if this is how you want them posted. I keep track in my private group of all my challenges and only do updates when I've read 5-10 books.

message 42: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Martha, the "who/what is" part is just a reference to the TV show, you really just need to put the book/author and date read.

It's up to you how you prefer to post, though, I'm not too picky! :)


message 43: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) OK ... thanks, Bree. That's why I asked :-)

I have a variation on that question... If I happen to have a name that has 2 consonants repeating, can I still use it for one? I'm a bit confused because the example you've given for the one letter in common - Pam Parker, Bree, has 2 Ps and 2 Rs...


message 45: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) Yeah, I think that even if it's got more than the required number of repeating letters, it can be counted for the lesser number. At least that's the impression I get from the example (I didn't write any of the categories or examples, those were just copied from the original challenge thread)...so I'm going to allow it! :)


message 46: by Christine (new)

Christine So the repeating letters can be in the same name, either first OR last? I took it to mean a letter in common between the first name and the last name.


message 47: by Bree (new)

Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) The repeating letters can be anywhere in the authors name.


message 48: by Christine (new)

Christine Bree wrote: "The repeating letters can be anywhere in the authors name."


Great! That makes it easier.
