Escape Room: Quarantined Edition

Happy quarantine guys! Just when you thought you were almost out of the house, we snagged you right back in. Since we are all kinds of evil, we thought a nice escape room reading challenge would be fun and new.

What is an escape room exactly??

Well, an escape room is a game in which a team of players cooperatively discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to progress and accomplish a specific goal in a limited amount of time.

So the goal is to basically escape the room.

That being said, you will also be trying to escape your room(s) throughout this challenge. In this, you will have about 10 rooms to complete. Each room will have around 20 tasks or clues.


This will be a team reading challenge, which will run from June 1st to June 30th. Winners will be announced on July 1st.

Teams will have up to 10 participants on them. If you would like to be on the same team with anyone, please comment with who when signing up. Please make sure that they sign up as well.

When signing up, please mention the number of books you plan on reading for the month of June. This number will be easier for me to make teams match up evenly.

For example,
Alaina - 50 books
Felicia - 10 books
Andrea - 15 books
Aly - 50 books
Jennifer - 25 books


**You will not be penalized if you go over or under your number**

The general challenge rules can be found here.

Page Points
1 - 99 pages → 0.5 pts (and it will only count for page points - not categories)
100 - 149 pages → 1 pt
150 - 249 pages → 2 pts
250 - 349 pages → 3 pts
350 - 449 pages → 4 pts
450 - 549 pages → 5 pts
550+ pages → 6 pts

Buddy Reads will DOUBLE your points.
BOTM will TRIPLE your points.

Challenge Rules:
For each task or clue, only 3 people of the team must complete it.

For example, if your team has 10 people on it. Out of the 20 tasks/clues, you have the task to read a book that starts with the letter K.
Person 1 - The Kite Runner
Person 2 - Keeping the Moon
Person 3 - Kiss of Death


Instead of a task, you could get a riddle. For example, what gets wetter as it dries? The answer: Towel. Once your team has figured out the answer, you will get some tasks to read for.

Clue/Riddle: What gets wetter as it dries?
Answer: Towel
Tasks:
‘Towel’ in text (add %/pg and quote)
Towel on cover (any edition works)
T,O,W,E,L in book title (in any order)
Author’s initials are in TOWEL


Whoever reads for this riddle can pick whichever task to read for. The 3 people who post do not have to read for the same task but if they do, it is still okay.

Once the third book has been posted, you can move onto the next task or clue. The same person CANNOT post two books for one task. It needs to be 3 different people per task.

If you are a fast reader, or tend to read tons of books, you are more than welcome to post a book per task. Just not more than one.

If your team is stuck on a clue, or have any questions about a task, you may ask for hints. This can be done on your team’s chat thread or by PM. Each team will also get 3 skips. These can be used on any task or clue you do not want to read or solve.

After a team has completed a room, they will get 50 bonus points.
