1. Clara's Do-It-Yourself Friend Finder...So They Can Do Stuff Together

Location: My living room, unfortunately
Reason You’re Playing: Boy, Friendship
Your Letter: Since we've been stuck at home in ye olde quarantine, my book club buddies have all slowly given up on reading altogether and chosen to pursue other hobbies (such as woodworking and painting triangles on every apartment wall), leaving me nobody to discuss fictional worlds with :( I hope to find a guy who'll be willing to show me his world and take me on adventures (so I can rub it on the faces of all my DIY-addicted, apartment-ridden friends) ❤

Picks:
Game 1:

White → Exotic → #2 → Running → Circle → A → And the Winner Is ... !

The final round. After this, you will finally meet the last man standing.


One of these men would like to spend time with you going to a sporting event or watching the game on TV (awesome snacks included, of course).
The other man would like to spend time with you doing a project together (that birdhouse won't build itself, you know).

How would you like to spend quality time?

A) Watching Sports: read a book that has the author's last name initial in the word SPORT.
B) Working on a Project: read a book that has the author’s last name initial in the word CRAFT.
