Come hang out at the Terminus Cafe, chat with players from other teams!

Note: This is NOT the place to ask questions about the game. This is purely a social hangout. Questions about the game should be asked in the Captains group by the Captains and Co-Captains.

My cunning plan worked! (I don't drive, by bringing the pretties I am guaranteed people will give me a lift, lol!)


message 25: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10387 comments I don't mind driving... we went to Seville last year by car, and I was the designated driver for the whole trip.

It was my first one, so I had to stop every hour or so cause I got sleepy, but I don't mind driving.

Eni and I and the little minion... perfect little escapade.

Melanie (mvalente89) | 736 comments I'm so excited! Wheelathon is my favorite of the team challenges.


message 27: by Alysa (new)

Alysa H. | 3647 comments Oohooooh! Wheel!
I will go sign up later today.

I must, meanwhile, go and silently contemplate what it says about me that I now consider Wheel to be a low-key challenge... 🤣


message 28: by Eldarwen (new)

Eldarwen | 9983 comments Mod
Well, Wheel IS a low-key challenge. For the most part. Usually. ;-)

Scenery improvement of this kind is very welcome!

And should we not end up on the same team, please feel free to drop some goodies in every now and then! ;-)

Your scenery improvements are always welcome.

Ditto!

Kristina Simon (kristinasimon) | 109 comments Yay! This is much more my speed. I like team challenges, but quidditch seems a little.... erhm.... intense....

Camilla | 1879 comments Sammy wrote: "Can I bring something to improve the scenery..?"

I especially like the valleys and ridges of that scenery.


message 35: by Slytherpuff (new)

Slytherpuff | 459 comments I think I can read one book per week but not certain and I def want to play but don't want to hinder a team


message 36: by Sammy (new)

Sammy (sammystarbuck) | 5320 comments I'm glad the scenery agrees with people ;)

I'm sure there will be many more interesting sights on this road trip! :D

In my haste to sign up earlier, it didn't really sink in that there's no need to read stupidly huge books for this one. If I wanted to up my monthly total by, say, 5 books, would I let you guys know here, or should I email mod account?


message 37: by Lexi (new)

Lexi | 2779 comments Yay, Wheel. I like the page numbers and actually have some just under 500 page books that need reading. I tried to sign up for a reasonable number as there at least three papers I want to try to write this summer.


message 38: by Alysa (new)

Alysa H. | 3647 comments I signed up with a number that seemed like it would balance out the facts that A) I have been reading less lately, B) I will probably go into a modest version of “challenge mode” for at least some of the time, and C) I don’t know what is going to happen over the summer with my work and childcare situation.
I like to give as accurate sign-up numbers as possible so it doesn’t create unfairness later, but sometimes this is just hard to figure out. 🤔

The new point system helps a lot though! Should be easier to balance book lengths with number of books read!

Christina (chrissy__) | 1638 comments The 'task lists' are new, right? Or have they come up in past versions of wat already?

You can do it here as well since we're around quite a bit. Just let us know if and when you decide to change your bpm :-)

No, they're new indeed. Just a little extra.


message 42: by Melindam (new)

Melindam | 2576 comments Hi E., yesterday our internet was wobbly and I'm a bit worried now whether my sign-up was submitted or not. :(

Could you check pretty please?

For all us Southern Hemispherians, I'm packing hot cocoa (maybe with an adult drink mixed in...) and warm blankets!!

Thanks E. Of course now I can't remember how many I signed up for to begin with. (why yes, my dad did always tell me that if my head wasn't stuck on, I'd forget that too, lol!)


message 48: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10387 comments I was worried with my numbers but, since I finally managed to finish magic bites and will start listening to magic burns while I pitifully try to sow a blanket to my kitty... I'm not worried anymore.


message 49: by Joanne (new)

Joanne Yessss! This sounds like just the thing to get me back into reading. I've been in a months-long slump.


message 50: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10387 comments Goodmorning wheelers!!!!

Don't know about you, but here, summer has arrived full force. This weekend was the perfect beach weather.... So of course we stayed in.

I pretty much doubt there will be beach or pool this season for us. My brain doesn't compute having to wear mask and proper precautions on a day to day basis and then doing stuff like going to beach carefree and sharing pools with other people.

I'm still working from home, and only leave the property for stuff like going to the drugstore or the vet.
