Katniss Everdeen | 29 comments Hopefully you've all had a bit of experience with a bow and arrow. If not, I'm here to give you some instruction and to referee all Olympic archery. To give you all fair warning, arrows seem to have a tendency to go astray, and you may find yourself impaled at any point during the competition. On that happy note, let's get started!

The goal of archery is to land your arrow somewhere on this multi-colored target:
description
As you can see, each region is marked with a set point value.

Every country will receive a total of 25 arrows, or 25 opportunities to score points. Once the competition begins, I will post a literary category/book recommendation request. Each country can nominate (1) book per category or request. Other than using your countries secret group to discuss options, all usage of the internet is not allowed. The Olympic staff will collaboratively assess the nominations and assign a point value from the picture above to each nomination. The gold, silver, and bronze medalists will be identified by the countries possessing the greatest number of points. There will be a total of 25 categories/requests.

And please be mindful of your stray arrows. We don't need an arrow through anyone's eyeball.

Katniss Everdeen | 29 comments Our very first category is...YA Romance! Once your country has decided upon a book for this category, please have one representative post the title/author below, along with the country he/she is representing. After each of the 10 countries have posted a recommendation, the mods will score the recommendations and a new category will be posted. So start posting!
