Eye Found It!

AMMP Game Night discussion on goodreads

Eye Found It!  Sign Up Thread

Start date: January 1, 2017
End Date: April 30, 2017

One of my favorite games to play on Game Night is Eye Found It! with my son. I love that everyone plays as a team to win the game. This team challenge is based on this game. Players will play in teams of 4. You can sign up as a team or you can request a team, in which case I will try to match you with a team in a first come, first serve basis. 

Once a week, on Monday morning around 8 a.m. CST I will spin the wheel for each team and post their category in their team thread. 

Players need to read a book that has an object on the cover that fits the category. (2 points)
OR read a book that has a word in the title that fits the category. (1 point)

-If all 4 team member finish their book for the week, the team will receive 2 bonus points, for a total of 10 points for the week
-Teams play to reach 100 points.
-If a team member does not finish their book, the team will only receive those points for books completed
-If a member fills in for another member, the team will be awarded all completion points, but no bonus points will be awarded

Q: What is the penalty if a team member doesn't get a book done one week?

A: The team will submit what they have at the end of the week and be awarded points based on what is completed. So the team just won't earn full points. This way, the team doesn't get very behind waiting on someone, and they can move ahead.
