Team D: (Check in)

Audrey ✔
Christella
Federica ✔

Please make words from the boggle board below and message me (Masoodah) the words you have found. You have a few days to find as many words as you can.

Here is the board:



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 follows:

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 points 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:

Word and no. of letters:
Option chosen:
Book:
Date read:

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).

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.

I have added ticks next to those words which have been taken from a member of the team. Only that member can use that word. No other member can use the same word twice.

Happy reading! :)

Hi all!

If you could, please add a post of the word you are going to be using and the book you are going to be reading so that I know which word is being used. Use the format listed and when you are done reading add the date read and your total points for that post.

Thank you :)

message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Audrey, thanks for the post but could you please add links of the books and also add the authors names. Thank you :)


message 15: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Sure, I also changed some of the words so you might want to edit that on the list. ;)


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you :) Yeah I'll tick them off


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Audrey, I have checked that the two books you have chosen for "Farse" and "Weezy" don't contain the number of pages needed for the option you have chosen. Both tasks say that you have to choose a book that has 5 in the page number but both of those books don't have 5 in the page number.

Could you please choose books that coincide with the options you've chosen or choose a different option altogether. Thank you :)


message 18: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Sorry, but I read my books online. Does it have to be the page number on the website or on my phone? Cause it works for on the version I read...


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

It needs to be the page number on the website so if you can find an ebook edition of the book on GR that you have read that has 5 in the page number then thats fine but if not you're going to have to find a different book either for this option or the other two options

Sorry Audrey :(


message 20: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Okay, I found the ebook version that I'm reading of Eldest. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7.... It has 635 pages.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay thats fine then thank you Audrey :)


message 22: by Audrey (new)

Audrey Also, I changed one of my already read books to get higher points, if that's possible. Thanks! :)


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah thats fine dont worry :)
