Chutes and Ladders: Game Board!
A few weeks ago we announced our winter reading challenge. Today, we post a final reminder along with our official game board. Keep reading to check it out and read more about the challenge.
You can read about the challenge on our main challenge page. If you want to join, send me an email with a list of 25 TBR books (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a photo you want to use for your game piece by December 10th. Below you’ll see our official game board, but without the images of the ladders and/or chutes (which will be added soon).
Exact placement of TBR numbers or book categories was determined using random.org. All book categories/tags were nominated by our challenge participants. Some of you were kind to your fellow readers while others submitted some really tricky categories.
The game will start Monday December 12. For the next 14 mondays, we will roll the dice for all eligible participants. Landing on a TBR square means you will need to read that specific number on your TBR list to move on. Landing on a category/tag square means you’ll have to read a book that fits the category in order to move on. Once you finish a book and post a mini review (or link to your blog post/good reads review), you’ll be eligible for the next dice roll. If you don’t finish a book in time, you can pass and wait until the following week (or whenever you are ready).
Once the dice roll occurs (and you are eligible to move that week) your piece will automatically move to that square. In order to move onto the next square you must complete your book and post the mini review on the challenge page (in the comments section under your list).
While the top prize will go to the person who has reached the end (or the furthest by end of game), there are good prizes located on hidden squares (some even located toward the beginning of the board). Those hidden prizes will be revealed when the game closes so if your piece is on a hidden prize square at the end of the game, you’ll win that prize. Expect cool bookish prizes to be announced in a few weeks. Top prize will be worth over $100 in cool bookish products.
We want to hear from you! What do you think of the categories? Participants: are there any squares that you are dreading or longing to land on? Which ones?
