The web has many variations of Book Bingo, but I couldn't find any cards I liked, mostly because they were themed or pushing an agenda. (25 boxes of teenage romance! Buy these books through my site!) I thought that since we're here on fanpop, why not create our own, and let that
be our theme? (And agenda, I suppose, if you choose to look at it that way. *holds up "PARTICIPATE IN THIS SPOT!" picket sign*)
How does Fanpop Book Bingo work?
You simply mark boxes as you complete them. (Just read a book with a one-word title? Cross it out or color it in!) You can do this with any image editing program. (Microsoft Paint, anyone?) I recommend saving yourself a copy of the card to update, which you can find in its full size link
. Ye Olde Fanpop Star is the free space. You can add your updated card here in the forum each time you finish a book or task, or wait 'til you get Bingo and add it. You don't have to review them, but include the names of the books that got you there!
How do I get a link?:
-5 boxes in a row, including diagonally, and lines completed with the help of the free space.
-5 unconnected boxes. The free space will not count if you go the random route.
-Those too easy for you? Complete the card!
What do I get if I win?
The satisfaction of knowing you are a cooler person for having read five books. No? The satisfaction of knowing that other fanpoppers think you are cooler for having read five books? Okay, fine. You'll get a prop for each Bingo, and something special if you complete the card. Happy now?
What's the point?
To read more books. To read different
books. To connect with other fanpoppers. To have fun. To add stuff that makes the spot more interesting and active. (Oh darn, I have revealed my evil secret fanpopian agenda.)
When's the deadline?
December 31, 2016. Take your time, friend.
