Yes, I am hosting ANOTHER ReadAThon! I had an awesome idea and I just had to go with it. Let’s jump straight in as this will be a long one!!
Round 1 of the Bookopoly ReadAThon will go for the entirety of July! From 12:00AM on the 1st of July till 11:59pm on the 31st of July!
The Bookopoly Board
You are welcome to download this image and enlarge to print out or simply download it and zoom in to see it better. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the text any bigger or the information simply wouldn’t of fitted.
For this ReadAThon all you have to do is roll 2 dice and make your way around the board earning or losing points based on the spaces you land on and what is required for each space. Pretty simple but we have added some fun elements like quizzes & bonus challenges throughout!
Also, if you roll a double when making your way around the board you simply roll again. Roll doubles, move your marker, roll again and then complete the challenge in that space. This is the same as in the actual game to keep it easy.
Different types of spaces
All you have to do when you land on one of these is Read a book that fits the challenge and once you do you Earn the specified points & then take your next roll.
We have tried to keep the challenges broad but if you simply do not have a book that fits the challenge you can read something that is kinda similar but doesn’t quite fit and still earn full points or read something that is the opposite. Get creative with it. As long as you can justify the book you chose then you can earn the points.
If you land on the same property space twice throughout the month you can either complete the challenge again and earn more points OR skip and roll again but not earn any points.
Treasure Chest & Adventure Spaces!
These replace the Community Chest & Chance spaces on a normal Monopoly board. For both of these you will need to complete a Quiz. You can always find the Quizzes linked in our Twitter Bio.
The Treasure Chest Quiz will result in you receiving a Treasure Chest Card where you could earn or lose points depending on which you get. If you land on this square more than once you will need to retake the test to receive another card but for the second time you must answer the quiz questions the opposite of what you first answered them so that you can discover a new card.
The Adventure Quiz is a story based quiz where you make decisions based on the scenario in the story. There are 3 possible outcomes and you will either earn or lose points depending on which you get. If you land on this quiz for a second time simply skip and roll again.
These spaces replace the Luxury Tax/Income Tax spaces on a real Monopoly board. Landing on either of these means you lose points and you will continue to lose points every time you land on them.
Book Shelf Spaces!
The Book Shelf spaces replace the Train Stations/Airports on normal Monopoly boards. For these squares there is also a Reading Challenge which functions the same as the property spaces, however you have the ability to earn bonus points with these squares! You can land on any Book Shelf space and complete the challenge more than once. If you complete 1 challenge you receive 100 points, if you land on a 2nd Book Shelf space and complete the challenge you received 150 points, 3rd is 200 points & 4th is 250 points. This counts for all of the Bookshelf spaces, so first you could land on the left most Book Shelf, complete the challenge and get 100 points & then the next time you could land on the right side Book Shelf, complete the challenge and get another 150 points. You do not have to land on and recomplete the exact same space just to get the bonus points.
This is slightly hard to explain but hopefully this makes sense! Any questions simply comment below.
This one is pretty simple. We wanted to incorporate a Harry Potter feature because Harry’s birthday is in July when we are having the ReadAThon!
If you know what your Hogwarts House is already then that is awesome! If you do not simply head over to the Wizarding World website and take the quiz to find out. Once you know your house simply complete the corresponding challenge!
Gryffindor: Read a book with Red on the cover.
Slytherin: Read a book with Green on the cover.
Hufflepuff: Read a book with Yellow on the cover.
Ravenclaw: Read a book with Blue on the cover.
You receive 100 points for completing a sorting hat challenge!
I decided to include a Reaping space to share in the excitement of the release of The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (The prequel to The Hunger Games).
For this one you actually get to make a choice in the Reading Challenge you receive. Simply chose any of the 12 Districts and complete the corresponding Reading Challenge.
District 1: Read a book with Gold on the cover
District 2: Read a book with a weapon on the cover
District 3: Read a book that features advanced technology
District 4: Read a book that features the ocean/lake/creek/etc.
District 5: Read a book with a powerful message or with someone seeking power
District 6: Read a book that features travel
District 7: Read a book with a tree/plant on the cover
District 8: Read a book with a colourful/rainbow cover
District 9: Read a book set in the outback
District 10: Read a book with an animal on the cover
District 11: Read a book that has a landscape on the cover
District 12: Read a book with a black cover
You receive 100 points for completing a Reaping challenge!
Obviously we have the starting point, Go which is where you begin and will also collect 200 points every time you go past.
Next is the In a Reading Slump/Just waiting space. This is where you will sit if you are In a Reading Slump. To get out of the Reading Slump you have 3 options!
Roll a doubles on your dice within 5 rolls (If you don’t roll doubles within 5 rolls you must choose another option)
Lose 100 points
Use a ‘Get Out of Your Reading Slump Free Card’
Next is the Library. This is just to fill space. If you land on this space simply roll again and continue on.
Lastly is the Fall into a Reading Slump space. If you land on this one you must head on over to the In a Reading Slump square and follow the above rules. If you pass ‘GO’ do NOT collect 200 points.
I have set up a Google Sheet for you guys to record your points & current position on the board. It is up to you to keep track of your points but this just gives you a place to put that information!
We have a discord for you all to chat on! We will also be hosting sprints on this Discord rather than Twitter, so make sure you come and join us!
As well as myself, the creator of the ReadAThon, I have 8 co-hosts! I will link their Socials down below if they have book related socials they wish to share!
We also have a Twitter where we encourage people to share their current reads and progress around the board and tag us in it so we can see how everyone is going!
Well I think that is all the info you guys need! If you have any questions please comment them below or head on over to our Discord and there is a Channel for questions!
Let me know if you will be participating in Bookopoly ReadAThon.
