Roll Dice

Monopoly Rules

• You do not need to wait for the other player to finish reading before you take your next turn. As soon as you're done reading, go ahead and roll.
• Each property is represented by a shelf. For each grouping of shelves/properties you would read a certain amount of books from that shelf. Once you finish the amount of books you would then “Own” that shelf.
• If you land on an “owned” shelf you would have to read a certain amount of books above what the owner had to read.
• If one person “owns” all of the books in a group (think Mediterranean and Baltic) and another player lands on their properties they would be able to recommend at least one of the books that the player has to read.
Utilities – For the Electric Company – Read a book where the characters have electric chemistry. For Water Works – Read a book that makes you cry. Books have to be 150 pages or more.
• If a player lands on an “Owned” utility, then the owner will recommend a book with electric chemistry or that makes them cry.
Railroads – For Reading Railroad – Read whatever you want. For Pennsylvania Railroad – Read a book set in Pennsylvania. For B&O Railroad – Read a book that someone else thought stunk. For Short Line – Read a novella. Page minimum 150 for all but Short Line. 25 page minimum for the novella.
• If a player lands on an “owned” railroad, the owner will recommend a book for that specific railroad.
Chance and Community Chest – there are 12 cards for each. If a player lands on one of those spots they will roll the dice a second time and then would “pull” the corresponding card and do whatever it says on the card. Once a card is used, it will be out of play unless needed to finish the game. Books for this would need to be at least 150 pages.
Being in Jail – To get out of jail you would need to have one of the get out of jail free cards, roll doubles on one of your next three turns or read a book where a character is arrested or has been in jail. Books for this would need to be 150 pages or more.
Just Visiting – Read a novella of your choice, 50 page minimum
Free Parking – Read any book 100 pages or more
Go – Read any book of 200 pages or more
Luxury Tax/Income Tax – Read a book with a rich character, a really poor character or someone that works in a bank. 150 pages or more
• Each roll, you'll post your starting spot, the roll and your new spot on the board.
• When you finish your book you'll post the spot your on, book name, rating, when it was finished and a short review of the book. If you were supposed to read a book that had a specific element (water works utility, book that made you cry), then please mention that in the review.
• Re-reads are allowed.

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Do you roll again after doubles?


message 9: by Maddie (last edited Jun 02, 2016 02:35AM) (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments I also need to remember to take off the chance cards. Already 2 down.


message 10: by Nancy85 (new)

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 773 comments I think you do. I asked about it but no one answered me. I mean, you get to roll again after doubles when you play it for real.


message 11: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Yeah. Haven't posted in the Q&A Thread?


message 12: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Wait you did haha.

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 773 comments haha. I'm starting to think you don't. I think I messed up


message 14: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Yeah I don't think you do.


message 15: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments In that case we both land on Income Tax as our first square! How frustrating! If Brianna lands on a property that's frustrating.


message 16: by Nancy85 (new)

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 773 comments I edited mine just incase you dont


message 17: by Nancy85 (new)

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 773 comments Well, she did land on St. Charles Place


message 18: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Oh true she rolled already. Bummer she's ahead of us now :p Hopefully this one won't take me long. I think my current book might count actually, with a few rich characters being involved.


message 19: by Nancy85 (new)

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 773 comments I know which book i'm going to read for it but I don't know when i'll get to it


message 20: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments On my game with Brianna I landed on a V author. Which will take me many days/weeks/months :p I'll need to find a little book for that. Oh wait, I'm reading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard at the end of this month so looks like I'll be reading that for that one.

So far, they have had two guardians to take care of them but in the end it's always a Count Olaf who tries to get their fortune. I will continue to read these series.

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Income Tax
Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Read: 3/6/16
Rating: 4 stars
Task: Read a book with a rich/poor character or someone who works in a bank
How it fits: Rich character Patch/Elliot/Jules

Review: Decreased this rating from 5 stars to 4. The characters just annoyed me a lot more in this book, I suppose, especially Nora, with her (view spoiler) I was really surprised that Jules was (view spoiler) I really cannot remember anything from my first reading of it. I think I properly understand more about (view spoiler)

Brianna Andreda | 235 comments St. Charles Place

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1) by C.S. Lewis The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Finished: June 6, 2016
Rating: 4 stars
Task: Read 1 book where author’s first or last name must start with C
How it fits: Author C.S. Lewis

Review: I didn't read this book as a kid. This is actually my first time reading this book. Even though I did enjoy the book, I feel like I probably would have enjoyed it more as a kid reading it than as an adult. I didn't really like Edmund, I felt as though he is very selfish. I loved Lucy and the fact that she was able to see who is good and who is bad. Overall this was a really good story and I plan on continuing the series.

Review: This is the third book in the alphabet series by Sue Grafton. This was a pretty good book. Kinsey Milhone is an investigator. She is investigation a death of a Boddy Callahan. While she was investigation his death, she was almost killed herself but she was saved. I'm going to continue the series, but i'm not sure when i'll be able to do that.
