Booklikes-opoly 2019 Edition

@ Booklikes, the book blogging social platform

Booklikes-opoly will take place starting June 1 MAY 20 and ending on August 10.

Player posts will be tagged with 'booklikes-opoly' at Booklikes, which will make it easier for everyone to follow the activity!

Basically, the name of the game is to make your way around the game board, reading books as each game card dictates, and collecting money per book read:

Virtual dollars are awarded based on the page length of the qualifying books:
0 to 100 pages:  $1.00
101 to 200 pages:  $2.00
201 to 400 pages:  $3.00
401 to 800 pages:  $5.00
over 801 pages:  $10.00

The player who manages to collect the highest amount of dollars will be the winner!

All readers will play in the background by themselves, and update the rest of the Booklikes community as the game progresses.  So the entire game is based on an honor system, since we will all be keeping track of our own game board, bank, dice rolls, etc...

The rules are quite extensive, but look simple enough once you get to reading them, so I won't list everything here.  For more information, visit the Game Play and Rules link listed in the next section, where the game cards can also be found.
