How to Play in Three (OK, Four) Easy Steps:

  1. Roll two dice or type “roll 2d6” into google.

  2. Complete whatever task you land on.

Every week we’ll be updating the board with initialized tokens to show everyone's progress.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I earn a raffle ticket?

A: Write a brief summary of where you landed, what you read/did, did you enjoy it, etc. on each week's blog post and then fill out that week's form, which will be linked in the post.

Q: Do I have to roll physical dice?

A: Nope. You can use digital dice or a random number generator set to 12. Feel free to also move up to 12 spaces at a time to select your challenge for the week.

Q: What happens if I land on Free Parking?

A: Free Parking lets you read a book of your choice.

 

Q: What about Go to Jail?
A: Move your piece to the jail and then read a book that you have owned for three years or more but haven't read yet.

Q: And if I just visit Jail?

A: You can either do the same challenge as above or take a nice break for this turn, though no tickets if you take a break.

Q: How do I collect when I pass Go?

A: Comment on that week's blog post and we'll waive a $1 fine on your card. If you have no fines, congrats! Also, we'll contact you directly to figure it out.

A: Absolutely! Make sure to leave multiple comments, one for each book category.
