Beach Trip "Bring Your Own Book" game

  1. Choose a book that you're currently reading or have recently finished. It can be anything at all -- a novel, a class textbook, a technical manual -- whatever.

  2. Go to this page and announce what book you're going to use.

  3. I will draw a card from the deck and announce a topic. Here are some examples from the game's blurb: "What's the tastiest “name for a candy bar” in that history textbook you're reading for school? How quickly can you find “lyrics from a country western song” in your dog-training guide? What kind of “advice for graduating seniors” will appear in your anthology of limericks?"

  4. Everyone will have 24 hours to come up with a sentence, group of sentences, or phrase from their book and post it.

  5. Then we will have another 24 hours to vote for our favorite entry.

  6. Winner of the round gets to choose the topic from the next card.

  7. Go!

Here's a good place to start a discussion of anything interesting that you come across anywhere on my website. No spoilers for where things are, though -- let people hunt!


Thanks for setting up and running the game, Bruce! I enjoyed it. :-)


OK, there seems to be waning interest, so we'll call it quits here. It was fun -- thanks to all for playing!

"All golden and lovely it blazed in the sunset, with walls, temples, colonnades, and arched bridges of veined marble, silver-basined fountains of prismatic spray in broad squares and perfumed gardens, and wide streets marching between delicate trees and blossom-laden urns and ivory statues in gleaming rows"
