C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments November Word Puzzle Challenge
This challenge is a variation of Wheel of Fortune. To begin each team will be given a blank puzzle to solve (in the form of a quote). As you read you will guess letters to fill in your puzzle. This is a team challenge. Please sign up below and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

The Rules/Points
*Books must be read and reviewed (or have five status updates) between November 1 and 31.
*Books must be at least 100 pages to count.
*Graphic Novels/Manga/Poetry/Books written in verse will not count
*For every book read and reviewed you will receive 1 point and a guess of any consonant to apply toward your puzzle.
*Every buddy read (taking place in our group, with five comments), will earn 1 additional point and your pick of any vowel.
*Participating in the group book of the month will earn 2 points and your pick of any two letters.
*Once at least one review has been posted toward a single puzzle, the team may guess the quote to complete the puzzle.
*The team will earn an additional five points for every puzzle solved.

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments When will teams be made? :D


message 22: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I'm hoping to get to them in the next day or so. If we don't have enough participants to do well with teams then I'll change some things around and update how it's being done. :)

KK. Thanks. :)


message 24: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments So far it's seeming as if the teams will be a bit lopsided. Hopefully one more person signs up. :)


message 25: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Very true. That's what I'm hoping.


message 26: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Worse case there could be a team with three and one with four or two teams of 2 and one of three. :/


message 27: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I also might put myself on a team and then just have the team pick letters, since I obviously already know the quotes. :)

That's a good idea! :D

YAY! :D


message 31: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Yeah, that's what I was thinking--have one of us on a team to even things out.


message 32: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Teams are now listed here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

message 33: by Kaylin (new)

Kaylin (The Re-Read Queen) (kaylin_14) Is it too late to join, since teams have been assigned? Found out I'm going to have a lot more down/reading time in November than I thought


message 34: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Nope! Kaylin, I will replace myself with you on Team Puzzler and then add my reviews to whichever team needs them as we go. (Or join a team if we have more people wanting to sign up.)


message 35: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments No, we needed someone anyway!:)
