This challenge is for 1 year from date started





Mad Libs is a word game where one player prompts others for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story, before reading the – often comical or nonsensical – story aloud. The game is frequently played as a party game or as a pastime. It's a "fill in the blank" story, where a person asks you to give them a "noun, exclamation, verb...", then places them into blank spots of an existing paragraph.

This challenge will be similar. But as we are starting this challenge in February, we are using quotes about love instead of a story.

The challenge will ask for 4 word types per option, which you will then place into the "blank spots", in this case replace the underlined words in the quotes about love.

Example:
The challenge asks for a verb
options would be things like: run, jump, bounce

The challenge asks for a "part of the body"
options would be things like: ear, nose, elbow, knee, big toe


You can either: use titles for the requested word (be sure you indicate which word in the title you are using) or do a spell-it-out for your words.

1. Pick an Option.
2. Read books for the requested word types.
NO PEEKING AHEAD!!!!
Pick your words before you solve the quote.
Honor system people!

3. Solve the Cryptograms for your Option.
4. Replace the underlined words with the words from your titles.
5. Repeat as desired. ;)

Example of completed option
food - chocolate chip cookie - Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder
adjective - hissing - Hissing Cousins: The Untold Story of Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth

Up to you. The answer keys are there to help you if you get stuck, but you don't have to try to solve the cryptograms on your own if you don't want to.

Gavin Abdollahi  (gavthereader) | 478 comments If a word in a book's title is a noun, but can also be used as a vern , does it count as one?

Keli | 593 comments I'll defo give it a go. At first, I thought it was just random lettering. I hadn't quite engaged my brain until I noticed that the same letters were being used as replacements when i looked at the solved section, that it wasn't just random. I just wanted to make sure.
