To talk about the FOURTH ANNUAL GAME OF
For any prospective new players:
Halloween Bingo is the flagship reading game on BL – it’s the first one that OB & I cohosted, all the way back in 2016, so this will be the fourth time that we’ve played!
I am working on this years categories, which will be selected from the last three bingo games, along with – assuming that my creativity doesn’t fail me – a few new ones! Some things don’t change, though, and the seasonal focus on horror, mystery, supernatural, thrillers and suspense remains from year to year.
Autumn is the time that we break into our store of gothic tales, our books about witches and wizards and werewolves and zombies, ghost stories and haunted houses and dark, stormy nights.
As we move into Halloween bingo season, if years past are any indication, you will see a lot of activity as this year’s categories are revealed, the cards are created, reading lists begin to pop up again, and players start posting about their reading plans.
The planned schedule:
8/1/19: As I announced yesterday, I will be drawing the prize winners from last years game of bingo.
8/10/19: The last day of Booklikes-opoly.
8/15/19: I will reveal all of the categories for this year’s game as well as any tweaks or changes to the rules and will open the thread to request bingo cards in the bingo discussion group.
8/30/19: Early reading begins. All players can pre-read one book.
9/1/19: First call and play officially commences
10/31/19: Last call and game ends
This is my favorite part of the reading year. Join us if you’ve not played before and I promise you will have fun! I can hardly wait!
