Booklikes-opoly 2019 - the Rules

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader:

Basic Rules & FAQ

 

 

 

 

 

Game Board

* Players keep track of their own game board and banks, in whatever manner you think will help you. Some players use a single update post, some use a spreadsheet, some download the game board and print if off and keep track of it that way. 

 

Start

* Every player leaves the Start space with $20.00 in their bank. Every time you pass the "Start" square, you make $5.00

 

Rolling

* Dice rolls are based on the honor system. You can either roll virtual dice or you can roll real dice at home. Like in Monopoly, we roll 2 six-sided die! 

 

* What happens with doubles?  You get to read two books - if you want. If you roll a double, move to that space and decide if you are going to read for it. Roll again, and move to your next space. You are free to do any one of the following four possibilities: read books for both spaces; read the book for the first space and skip the second; read the book for the second space and skip the first; skip both, wait until your roll day comes back up and roll again.

 

Banking money


* Virtual dollars are awarded based on the page length of the qualifying book, as follows:

0 to 100 pages: $1.00
101 to 200 pages: $2.00
201 to 400 pages: $3.00
401 to 800 pages: $5.00
over 801 pages: $10.00

 

Roll schedule

*Players can roll no more frequently than every other day. Players keep track of their own roll days. If you roll on a Tuesday, you don't roll again until Thursday. We calculate this is days, not hours, so you can roll at 11:59 on Tuesday and 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, and even though there are only 24 hours and 2 minutes between your rolls, you've rolled every other day. 

 

Playing through a space

*Like in monopoly, you can play through a space without reading a book to fill the task, the only rule is that you have to wait for your the next roll date to move. However, if you choose to read for a space, you can't move until you finish the book and bank your payout. There are a few exceptions to this rule:

 

1. when you roll doubles.

2. audiobook exception below

3. if the game master (that would be me) gives you extra rolls.

 

Audiobooks

*Audiobooks can be used for all game play. Base the value of the audiobook on one of the print editions.

 

*The audiobook exception: audiobook listeners may have one audiobook in progress while they continue moving around the board. You don't bank your payout until you finish listening.

 

DNF'ing

 

*DNF's are allowed. You can count the # of pages read to get your payout - so if you read 120 pages before DNF'ing, you get $2.00 for your bank. The only caveat is that you have to read 10% of the book to get any payout.

 

Timing


*Game play will start on June 1 MAY 20TH and end on August 10, which gives me a couple of weeks to get ready for Halloween Bingo 2019.

 

*Special events and holidays: keep an eye on my blog! I will frequently offer extra rolls for holidays like the 4th of July, or other special events like Bout of Books. 

 

In addition, I reserve the right to mess with you all! I can add features or change the rules at literally any time, so you need to keep an eye on this space!

*I will set up a Q&A thread in the Bingo group. Please post questions in that thread! 

*Where a task refers to genres, you can use any source for determining genres, including GR, book lists, Librarything tags, and your common sense. If you are not sure if a book will fit a certain genre, you can post the question in Q&A.


*On the final day of game play, players must submit the value of their bank accounts to be considered for the acclaim and honor that being a BL-opoly winner brings!

Other squares

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader:

The railroads:

 

 

The questions

 

 

The novelty squares:

 

We are doing something completely different with the novelty squares this year. If you land on any of the following four squares, you put the card in your pocket to play later and roll again immediately to move to a reading square. 

 

If you land on a square that you just can't come up with something to read, and you have one of these in your pocket, you can play it at any time regardless of what the square prompt says.

 

The Scottie Dog:

 

 

The race car

 

 

The robot:

 

 

The cat

 

 

 

Spin the Wheel Decide

 

Last, but not least, the 4 corners of the board

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader:

 

Every time you pass go (unless you are going to jail, of course), you collect $5.00 for your bank!

 

 

The jail square:

 

If you are just visiting: read enough pages to donate $3.00 to the bail fund.

 

If you are in jail:

 

Roll the dice to determine your bail, between $2.00 and $12.00. Check the bail fund to see if there is enough money there to bail you out. If not, make up the difference with your bank. If your bank doesn't have enough money to bail you out, read your way out of jail.

 

 

Roll 2 dice.

 

A 2 or a 3, sends you to the robot;

4, 5, or 6, go to the race car;

7,8 or 9, go to the Scottie dog;

10, 11, or 12 takes you to the cat

 

 

Do not pass go. 

Discussion group threads

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader:

If you aren't a member of the Booklikes Bingo group and you want to play you Booklikes-opoly, you should join the group!

 

You can find all of the rules and gameplay information here, including a plain text version of all of the squares and a list of useful links that I will be expanding over the course of the game.

 

You can find the Q&A thread here, which is a place for you to post questions about the rules, about whether or not a book fits a prompt or anything else that you need to know.

 

You can find the Bank thread here, in case you want to keep track of your bank in the discussion group.

 

You can find the Bail Fund here, if you are either in jail, or just visiting.

Snakes and Ladders - OHHH NO!!!

I just realized I royally messed up! When I hit the snake that said go back 1, I went back 1 space. I was supposed to go back to Space 1!

 

What a moron I am!

 

UGH...

 

I will have to print the card and figure this all over again. If that's even possible.

Main character is a woman. WOOT! This is an easy one. I found a new author to love -  AJ Banner - and I got another book of hers from the library. So glad it fits!

 

I haven't had a chance to update my actual card because it's saved on my ipad. I will do that soon.

After Nightfall

After Nightfall - A. J. Banner

This definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I could have read it in one sitting if life didn't get in the way. The only problems I had with it were minor ones. I thought it was a bit convenient that her best childhood friend whom she lost touch with ended up being her new boyfriend's neighbor and that his whole family knew her. Also it has two "shocking" endings and I think it only needed one. The second shocking twist wasn't really necessary and I didn't feel it really packed a punch like it was intended to. Although I thought a lot of the set up was quite convenient, it still made for a really good book that I would recommend.
