(Your ss was made for your convenience and teamwork. If you choose not to use it or prefer to make your own, that is your teams choice. This spreadsheet will not be updated by a mod it is strictly for team member use only. Please let Felicia know if you have any questions, but this should be self explanatory.)

For this challenge, we will be picking one overall winner to pick a book from the prize lists (chosen at random for fairness)! At the end of our Vacation Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month Pageopoly challenge, this Disney challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

I have edited all team spreadsheets to have the new members (if you have had someone new added) in there. If and when new members are added to a team they can go into their teams SS and use the instructions to add their name to their teams SS. :D

HELLO EVERYONE! We, the mods, wanted to let you know some things for this upcoming challenge “point-wise”. So, for graphic novels they will ONLY count for 1/4 page points. Doesn’t matter what character you are on, they will just be page points. Screenplays or verses will count for 1/2 the page points. Then we wanted to be nice and creative because we think if you can find a retelling that fits the character that you are reading for - well, you get an extra point! If you have any questions about the upcoming challenge please go to our Q&A thread and a mod will answer your question in a timely manner 😊

The only thing I can see is that if @Ashleigh wanted to move A Darker Shad of Magic to traveling/flying you could use 3+ colors for Daisy's Vintage Cornish Camper Van, The Last Titan or Some Sunny Day.

BTW, I wanted to read the 7.5 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle if you want to buddy ready later in the month.

Hello Tangled team!

We, the mods, realized that the point system was different on the team's SS than it was on our actually sign-up thread. So if possible, please change the page point system (on the first tab of the SS) to the following:

PAGE POINTS:
100 - 149 -> 1 pts
150 - 249 -> 2 pts
250 - 349 -> 3 pts
350 - 449 -> 4 pts
450 - 549 -> 5 pts
550+ -> 6 pts

Please and thank you!
