Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) description

Here we go again!


The general rules of Scattergories are you are given a list of categories and a time limit. Then the letter dice is rolled and you have to come up with something that matches your letter and the category.

This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in this month. You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you don't have to read 12 books this month...don't worry!) While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items (they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book):

The Challenge: I will post a list of 12 categories, 6 general relating to any book, and 6 specific to that month. On the last day of the month before, I will post the letter of the month. You can start reading on the 1st. The goal is to get as many points as possible by the end of the month.

Duration: January 1st to January 31st

Rules
1.Any genre of books will work
2.Ebooks and audio count
3.You can read in any order
4.Rereads are ok but if you really reread the book

Points: You get one point for each category you can tie to a book, where the first letter begins with the letter of the month. You get double points for each time the letter of the month is used to begin a word (ex. for author if the letter was C, Cassandra Claire would be 2 points). We will not be deducting points for duplicate answers like the original game version does.

Special categories are open for interpretation. As long as it is mentioned in the book and you can justify how it fits, it will work.

When you find one of the items list the Book Title and Author (or link the cover), date it, and specify where the item is found within the book.

Just like the regular game we will not use the letters K, Q, U, V, X, Y and Z.

Let me know if you have any questions.

January Specials

The first day of the month is known as NEW Year's Day, which is usually brought in with LOUD bells and whistles. It is, on average, the COLDest month of the year within most of the Northern Hemisphere. January's birthstone is the garnet, a RED stone. January is National HOBBY Month as well as having a couple MANLY holidays (Male Watcher's Day- Jan 8 & Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day- Jan 12).

Anything related to a male will work.
Here are examples from last January where the letter was W.

Men with wings

Whatever he'd hoped to gain by a MANLY display, had backfired

January is National HOBBY Month as well as having a couple MANLY holidays (Male Watcher's Day- Jan 8 & Feast of Fabulous Wild Men Day- Jan 12).
