This thread is for “Mission Control” and will be where the Mods tell a team which team(s) they need to “fire on” or challenge.

Please post those in the “Firing On” or Challenging Another Team thread.

In just a little under 14 hours Mission Control will give teams their first assignment. Are you ready?

NBRC Book Ninja | 1025 comments Ahoy! It is time to get aloft and plan your first attacks.

You will have two targets - one shot each - this first week.
Please note, one team, Team T, will fire on Team W twice. (It was the roll of the dice that determined this.) So, don't get confused.

Please clearly post your coordinates by NOON PST on March 7th in the “Firing On” or Challenging Another Team thread.

Successful hits are on a first come, first hit basis. If you're worried about another team beating you to a square, offer a second square as back-up at the time of your posting.

I will update Page 3 of the Team Assignment spreadsheet - Hits & Misses - as I can. (Despite what some of you think, I don't live on GRs, so give me time.)

SPECIAL NOTE: We will give any members how have not yet check in until NOON on Saturday the 8th, before we maroon them and find a replacement player.

Those of you who do NOT have all your fellow shipmates on board have been given your cards anyway; they are in the photos section of your secret group. If you do get a replacement player, and since cards are based on what your members read, we will discuss getting a replacement card.

Be prepared to defend your genre - by this we mean dodge a hit!!

Avast Ye, Captains! Be sure the team mate that defends the genre - or deflected the hit - has their designated book marked as “read” on their bookshelf. When you have verified this, post them HERE!

NBRC Book Ninja | 1025 comments There will be three “firing on” or genre challenges announced in less than 12 hours.

Are you ready to put your strategy caps on?:

NBRC Book Ninja | 1025 comments Ahoy! It is time to get aloft and plan your third, fourth, & fifth attacks.

You will have three targets - one shot each - this second week.
Please note, Team T, will fire on Team U twice; Team U will fire on Team Z twice. (It was the roll of the dice that determined this. Really, what are the odds of this happening to the same team twice?) So, don't get confused.

Please clearly post your coordinates by NOON PST on March 14th in the “Firing On” or Challenging Another Team thread.
