Release chain with names

Hello

We play this Game already in the german thread.
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/497218

The rules:

I poste here the first release as a starting point. If somebody has a suitable book, he makes a post with the reference "SNAP!" From this time he has 24-hour time to release the book. On releasing (or briefly before it) postet he or they the release here as a new post with the information of the title and the link to the journal. Then then book can also snappes. And then thus it goes on and on.

remarks:

1. Only given names from all countries count it. These names should stand in the title. The author's names do not count it.
2. So that it becomes a little more difficult, the next book may have which then it is released, +/-a letter of the alphabet. Now example Barbara, would be therefore one with A or C in it.
3. Everybody is able so often he / she would like to take part, there is not a specific registration.
4. Boys / - as well as maiden names, the order count it what comes as the next makes no difference.
5. The releases which already date back up to 7 days count it.
6. With the letters X, Y, Z and Q it makes no difference where the letter in the given name is.
7. Wild releases and controlled releases count.

GLORY Be by Augusta Scattergood http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13570851

And now I have 24 hours to release it. Is that right? Let me know if I did this wrong.

And how do you keep the letters from going back and forth from G-H-I-J? It looks like they never get to the rest of the alphabet, the way it is going.

GLORY Be by Augusta Scattergood http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13570851

I think it's a great idea to CAPITALIZE the name - it makes it easier. :)

And now I have 24 hours to release it. Is that right?

Based on the other snap games, I'd say yes.

Off to see if by chance I have any Fs...

Aren't you supposed to wait until solittletime RELEASES the book?
Profile Image
at the moment. Is it Wild release only or will controlled count too?
Profile Image
Only wild release...
Profile Image
When I was playing the other snap game, I thought you had to wait until the other person actually released the book to snap on it - otherwise your snap was not valid. So who is the last person who snapped here? Solittletime or 83dea?

Also, I don't remember being able to snap on your own release. Do you allow that in the German forum?

excuse, I was too quick.
But now, you release this book. I would say, it goes on with my release. and in future I will be slower, sorry for the confusion

Oh, ok. I remember Vekiki set up the original snap game with a rule that you can't snap your own release but I guess this one is different. It does look like it might make for fewer players, though...

Still looking for the right letter.

Someone came to my house very unexpectedly and is still here and I am unable to get out to release within the 24 hours deadline. My hints that I had to go out didn't work. I'll save the book for another time. Very sorry.

Life happens sometimes...

So we're back to G or I based on 83dea's release...and I don't have one of those, at least not yet.

4. Boys / - as well as maiden names, the order count it what comes as the next makes no difference.



I am a little unclear on this. Does that mean we can use surnames?

Example if we were on letters E and G would this book be acceptable :

The EYRE Affair

Thanks

I thought maybe that meant male & female names?

#1 says "Only given names" - which usually means first names.

I check in from time to time, but have yet to have the right book at the right time...

You're right, hyphen8. :) I think this must be a translation problem: German "Mädchenname", lit. 'girl's name' means both maiden name and female given name.

Thanks both. It was the word maiden that made me query it as it does state quite clearly earlier that it is given names.

I haven't had a suitable book to release yet either :)

Thank you linguistkris! I was pretty sure it was a translation issue but since I know about 2 words of German* I couldn't be sure.

*Thanks to BookCrossing, I know what "buch" is. ;)
