News – 2017 r/Fantasy Bingo Revealed
OK, so I know through out the year I occasionally mention my progress on my Bingo card for Reddit Fantasy. I find this to be the funnest reading challenge around and the one I stick consistently with. I know a few people have mentioned some level of interest in it in the past, so since they revealed the new categories today, I wanted to share it with everyone since I know a not all of you visit r/fantasy regularly. I have to give a shout out to u/lrich1024 for doing such an amazing job organizing this every year.
Also, this challenge runs April 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018 so you have an entire year to find a read books!
One of the things I love about it is encourages stepping out of your comfort zone and reading a wider variety of styles, authors, publishing dates, etc. I feel like most reading challenges focus on 1 way to diversify your reading, but don’t necessarily encourage an all around diverse set of books. If you complete the card, this will make sure you read a good range of books. You don’t have to fill every square! You can get Bingo in the traditional sense, but if you are like me, you are going to want to fill all of the boxes.
Also, there is currently a Bingo Recommendations Discussion started by /u/Kopratic where people are leaving book recommendations for each of the squares. Great way to get (or share) some ideas for the completing the challenge. I will scouring this thread for the least weird options for my New Weird square!
So, anyone going to join me this year? I promise, it’s a lot of fun!
If you complete all the Bingo squares, you get nifty flair that shows up next to your username in r/fantasy.
