Hey Team C!

Members (everyone please check in when you see this thread):

Please look at the Boggle Board below and private message me (Idil) on GoodReads all the words you have found! You have a few days to complete this.

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...

Here is the format in which you will be posting:

Team words:


Here are your team words!

I have eliminated those words which have been found by two or more players. You will have to read books for each of the words listed (choose ONE from a range of three options for each number of letters listed on the first post of this thread). Make sure you post before you start reading a book, so that others don't use the same word!!

Aim for the words with the most amount of letters to gain more points for your team!

If you have any more questions please post them on the original 'Boggle Book Challenge' thread and we will answer them as soon as possible.

Happy reading! :)

You can read any books you want, as long as they fit the category :)


Sofia Kathryn Coon | 15 comments Hold on...we got no points? I'm sorry, I'm confused about this. Did all of our words we provided you with overlap?


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh you guys are all mixed up!

The words you've found from the board as listed by Idil in the previous post are what you will use to read your books.

So for those words which are made up of 3 letters you pick any 3 letter word and you have to read a book by choosing ONE of three options (A B C) under the first point which says '3-4 letters'.

You then have to find a book for the option, post which word youre going to be using, post the option youre choosing for that nunber of letters or word and then post a book link. The format for the completion post is in the first post of this thread.


Sofia Kathryn Coon | 15 comments Ha, got it thank you.


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Sofia Kathryn Coon | 15 comments I guess my teammates bailed. I'm only going to be able to complete Eye of Minds by Thursday, so I think I cap out at 31 points total.

Not bad for doing it by myself.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah... Not a lot of people are active... Including myself. Unfortunately, I haven't read a lot this month, but I'm planning on doing better in april :D
