How'd you add the books into the square like that!?! O.O

I just saved the board and added the covers on Paint.
Then I uploaded the new board on Photobucket, so I could copy the URL.

It sounds complicated, but it's actually easy (I'm just horrible at explaining things)

I'm very low tech and don't have photobucket so it's probably too techy for me but thank you. ^-^

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Also, if you cover your entire board, you get another 10 points.


message 27: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 802 comments So if the entire board is covered, is that a total of 50 points? 10 for each of the four rows (40 total) + 10 for the entire board?


message 28: by Erin (new)

Erin (eisawesome) Can you use the same book for a whole row


message 29: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 802 comments Erin wrote: "Can you use the same book for a whole row"

You can use one book for a maximum of two squares.

Yes!


message 31: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Jessica, actually, depending on the style of bingos you get (horizontal, vertical, etc) you can get more points. I could get 60. One vertical, four horizontal, and then 10 points for completing the card.

If you complete the entire card, you get 10 points for that bingo that completed it all AND an ADDITIONAL 10 points for completing the entire board.


message 32: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 802 comments Gotcha. I was thinking you could use each square only for one bingo but how you said it makes it sound like you can use a square for multiple?


message 33: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments yeah! two square per book but then the bingos may overlap

message 36: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Jacque, I'm (you guessed it) a wee bit confused.

Okay, so I have a one line Bingo. I'm going for a blackout, so do I report each line as I go and then if I make the blackout get that extra 10 points at that time? Or do I wait until I have the blackout and report it all at once?

If I report it now then here's my Bingo:

Got one Bingo Line One Across

Completed 08/11 for 10 points

You guys have fun today. I am off to work! YAY!! (NOT!) LOL I'd rather be here reading with all of you, but you all have a blast and build those points!!!


message 37: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Yes, you report your bingos one by one. Once you get your last bingo, you get 10 points for THAT bingo and an ADDITIONAL 10 for the blackout.

Have a good day at work. :)

Putting your points for the bingo now! Just make sure to do it from now on in the claim your points thread so I don't miss it. :)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Hello, everyone!! You guys are doing amazing.

Remember: If you complete a bingo, make sure to post in the claim your points thread or else your points will not be seen and added.

Thank you! Happy reading!



message 41: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments ALSO: Your bingos CAN overlap. You can fill in one square and possible have 3 bingos. If it's the bottom right square you could possibly get a diagonal, vertical, and horizontal bingo. Pay attention to your bingos!! ;D


message 42: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 802 comments I may be overthinking this, but wouldn't a blackout earn you 110 points total? 40 points for all horizontals, 40 for all verticals, 20 for both diagonals, plus the 10 for completing all squares. Again, I could be overthinking it but that's kind of how I interpreted it.
