Welcome to our new edition of The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me? This week we have a Game for you! Since you enjoyed the last game we played, we thought we could come up with something fun but different. Last time there was only 1 good answer for each question, but this time we’ll give room to YOUR knowledge of covers. You can answer with the covers YOU know, in whichever genre you want. The game is simple… We tell you a requirement (a thing, an animal, an object, a word in the title…) and you have to come up with a book cover that fits the bill. Of course that alone would be too easy 😉 So you can earn more points depending on the level of difficulty.

What can you Win?
Prize is a 15$ book depo shopping spree.

How to play?
Below you can find 17 challenges. Each consists of 3 words. Your task is to find a cover that fits the bill so to say. In every challenge you can choose your level of difficulty:

Level 1: Easy : 1 requirement to meet. Worth 1 point
Level 2: Medium: 2 requirements to meet. Worth 2 points
Level 3: Difficult: 3 requirements to meet Worth 3 points

The better your cover meets the requirments the more points you will get. The goal is to get as many points as you can. The more points you get the more entries you have for the giveaway. Of course with a lot of luck you could win with just 1 point = 1 entry. 😉
There isn’t just ONE good answer, you just need to find a cover that will fit the requirement(s).

Let us explain this with an example:
Baby, Man, Christmas

From left to right:

  • Level 1 : Only Baby (the word) is used
  • Level 2: Man (depicted) and Christmas (word)
  • Level 3: Man (depicted),  Baby (word and depicted), Christmas (word)
  • Level 3: Baby (only the word this time), man (depicted), Christmas (word)

As you can see you can take our hints literally or not. Surprise us!!

We also prepared 3 bonus challenges (for the adventurous ones) which only have one level: You’reDaBoss: For those you have to meet 4 requirements of the 7 words we listed: Worth 6 points!!

The giveaway is open to all and ends on Sunday, September 30th. The winner will be announced in our next post on October 1st.

If you have questions about the rules just leave a comment and we will try to make everything clear.

    THIS IS AMAZING! So amazing, that I will nut sully this quiz with only half of my attention. Which means I have to wait until I am not at work to fill it out. Damnit.

    • pattepoilue September 17, 2012 at 3:04 pm

      *g* YAY!! I’m so happy you’re up to the challenge *g* We had a LOT of fun making this quiz. The idea came to ma at 1AM one night and now I’m waiting to see if someone will beat us *g*

      • draconismoi September 18, 2012 at 12:21 am

        I expect bonus point for remembering a Red Dragon Tattoo.

        Just saying.

        • pattepoilue September 18, 2012 at 5:37 am

          Lol i admit I didn’t find a red dragon tattoo cover, but there’s plenty of dragon tattoo with red on the cover or red dragons and a tattoo . LOL But now i’m curious to see what you’ll come up with *g*

  • LSUReader September 17, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Wow! Somebody’s been working overtime on the craziness! Looks like fun.

    • pattepoilue September 17, 2012 at 3:06 pm

      Yes LOL I’ve been thinking about that for days. We hoped giving everyone the chance to choose their level would make it more interesting

  • Ren September 17, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Since Caro and Susi is my friend on Goodreads, I will stalk their book shelf, lol!
    Good job ladies! You make me distracted for my job now to search the cover! :))

    • pattepoilue September 18, 2012 at 5:36 am

      Bwahahaha that is very good thinking LMAO

    • pattepoilue September 18, 2012 at 7:48 am

      Please do not enter yet. We’re having problems with the form

      You can now enter safely =)

      • draconismoi September 19, 2012 at 12:19 am

        Your form still gave me conniption fits! It would not let me select my level of difficulty! Which was all 3s all the way. No easy route for this dragon!

        • pattepoilue September 19, 2012 at 4:53 am

          LMAO that’s because you’re not meant to succeed LMAO <== even our form is evil lol

  • aurian September 18, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    Well, I have done my best, one time I knew the cover I wanted, just could not find it. Probably know it tomorrow.

    • pattepoilue September 18, 2012 at 4:01 pm

      You can still add the complement to your answer when it comes back to you. As long as you only have 1 answer by Q in the end it works for me. =)

  • Sullivan McPig September 18, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    Ok…. did it twice now and I think i´m bad at this.

    • pattepoilue September 18, 2012 at 4:02 pm

      Thank you for re-entering! And I’ve looked a bit and it’s not bad at all!
      I had a hard time coming up with an answer on those Susi made LOL

  • LSUReader September 18, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Done! Hope it all went through! Good luck on “grading” our entries.

    • Susi September 19, 2012 at 12:12 am

      We got your answers! *pulls out the red pen* 😉

      • draconismoi September 19, 2012 at 6:01 pm

        Ooo, can I help with the grading? I am qualified to give legal opinions on all answers. 🙂 Except my own. That would be a conflict of interest.

  • blodeuedd September 29, 2012 at 7:14 am
