Rawk: Words With ... Myself!

Rawk-A-Tiers Words With ... Myself! hosted by Rawk-A-Tiers on Goodreads.

This is going to be interesting, it is a 3 months challenge but I will try and make boards end of each month when I know which books to use.

Here's the link to the site where you'll find your board. You'll need to create a free account to access the boards.

There are a variety of board option choices. Choose whichever one appeals to you. Not all designs have the same number of tiles or the same number of grid squares, however, so choose carefully! Make a note in your post of the game board design and the number of tiles your game board begins with.

Select your dictionary (there are several to choose from, so use whichever you are most comfortable with). Select number of opponents as 1.

I'm including this because it took me forever to figure it out. It's simple when you know how to do it, but it's not intuitive.

Click on the spot where you want to put a letter tile. Type the letter you want to put on that spot. The curser will default moving to the right, so if you want to place words vertically, you'll have to click on each spot in the grid where you want to put a letter. To delete a tile, click on it and press your delete key. To change the letter on a tile, click it and type the new letter into your keyboard.


◊ Fill in your board with the book titles, authors, or main characters from the books that you read this quarter.

◊ As you fill in your board, keep in mind the following rule : Tiles that sit adjacent to each other either vertically or horizontally must form real words.

◊ Author names must be either first and last or last only. You are not permitted to use an author's first name alone.

◊ Main characters may be used as first, last, or both names.

◊ Names may be spelled out in a single row, or separated into two different locations.

◊ Titles may be spelled out on a single line or split up by words, but the entire title must be used in the puzzle. You may omit "a, an, the" if you choose.


◊ Each tile is worth .25 points.

◊ The game is penalty scored - the number of remaining tiles is subtracted from the number of used tiles and the answer is multiplied by .25

Example using a 100 tile game
89 tiles used ~ 11 tiles remaining
89-11 = 78 x.25 = 19.25 points for the game
71 tiles used ~ 25 tiles remaining
71-29 = 42 x .25 = 10.5 points for game

CR - Each book may be used x3 ~ title + author + MC
RR - Each book may be used x2 ~ title or author or MC
PR - Each book may be used once ~ title or author or MC
