24 Festive Tasks: Mid-December Stats

Only two more weeks to go, and tomorrow we’ll be revealing the tasks for the remaining seven holidays / doors!

So, here’s the status quo as we are going into the final stretch of the game:

Current overall total is just shy of 700 points, which equals roughly 130% of the sum total of points collected in the entire game last year.  Woohoo!

The most popular square remains Melbourne Cup Day with an unbeatable 68 points, followed by Penance Day (58), Día de los Muertos (55), Guy Fawkes Night and Diwali (both 53), Mawlid (52) and Thanksgiving (51).

Now that the Hogswatch group / buddy read has kicked in, we have no square left without any points at all.

The most popular individual tasks to date are Melbourne Cup Day / pick your ponies (36 points), Día de los Muertos / favorite epitaph (18), Guy Fawkes Night / crimes against books and Diwali / “girls with flowers” book covers (both 16), Guy Fawkes Night / burn a book in effigy (15), and a trio with 14 points each: Penance Day / book habits, Penance Day / favorite sports teams, and Thanksgiving / favorite books of this year.

And finally, the holidays for which the most books have been read so far are Día de los Muertos (13), Guy Fawkes Night (12), Veterans’ / Armistice Day and International Day for Tolerance (both 11), and Mawlid (10).

Have fun during the final 2 weeks of the game!
