Hello everyone! We will be hosting a Boggle Book Challenge next week... If you don't know what Boggle is, please take a look at this link: http://m.wikihow.com/Play-Boggle.

The rules will be as follow:

Participants are divided into groups of 4. Each group will have a separate thread for their game. I will post different "Boggle Boards" on each thread. The participants will have a few days to message me on GoodReads all the words they could find on the board. After the deadline, I will award all the participants their points. If two or more people find the same words, they will be eliminated and no one will get points for that, so try aiming for harder words. The participants will have to read books according to their points, and will get three options:

3-4 points:
Option A - A book with three or four words in the title
Option B - A book with the words "Three" or "Four" in the title
Option C - A book with an author who has a three or four letter last name

5 points:
Option A - A book with a 5 in the page number (for example, if your book has 305 pages)
Option B - A book with five different colours on the cover
Option C - A book with a hand in the cover

6 points:
Option A - The word "Six" in the title
Option B - A book with an author with a 6 letter first name
Option C - Number 6 in a series

7 Points:
Option A - Seven words in the title
Option B - More than seventy chapters
Option C - Has a 7 in the page number

8 or more points:
Option A - A book that has more than 8 different letters in the title
Option B - A book that has been on your "to read" list for more than 8 months
Option C - A main character that has eight or more letters in their name

Each participant will get one point for each book they read. They will be given a month to collect points by reading books. At the end of the month, the team that has collected the most points will win. Any questions you have you may ask them here. You can sign up on this thread any time until the groups are made...

Yes, of course. The last sign ups were actually yesterday but I don't mind if you guys still want to sign up. If you sign up a bit later than today, you'll just have to be okay with starting the challenge a bit later than the others :)
