Stephen (havan) | 128 comments There's a game that I've been participating in in another group that I think you all might like.

It's called the Novel Mash-up Game. The rules are simple the poser takes two well-known novels that share a word in their titles. Then meld the two plots into a single thread and challenge all comers to deduce the combined title.

EXAMPLE 1
Clue (melded plot summary): The courtroom becomes a media circus when two famous lawyers take the case of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad.

Answer (Melded Title): (view spoiler)

EXAMPLE 2

Clue (melded plot summary): A despotic government recruits 24 young people to play a deadly survival game that will determine who rules the seven kingdoms. Tracker-jackers and Direwolves, and Dragons, Oh My!

Answer (Melded Title): (view spoiler)

We've a number of inventive players and are always looking for more and it's certainly more fun for avid readers than most of the games threads in GoodReads.

Here's a link to the thread.

Many of the older puzzles have been fitted with spoiler tags so that newcomers can try a few before joining the fray. Hope to see you there!

Ok, I loved that Stephen. Very amusing.

Here's one for you....
