Bingo Challenge Hard Mode

If you think this bingo challenge is too easy, I have ideas about how to make it harder,

Just use the H prompts then:

First Row

H) Detective: Mystery written by a woman.

H) 1,2 in a series. – First AND second in a series

H) 700+ Pages

Rainbow heart: LGBT+ or BIPOC

H) Novella by an author you haven’t read before, released in 2022 or 2023.

Second Row

H) 3,4 – Third AND Fourth book in a series.

H) Red, Pink, Orange on the title or series title

H) Not one but 3 Books on your physical bookshelf

H) Word “Three” for the Number “3” in the Title like in “The Three-Body Problem.”

H) Science Fiction without spaceships or aliens

Third Row

H) Black, Grey, White on the title or series title

Audiotape: Audiobook or, if you don’t like audiobooks, a book in a genre you don’t usually read.

H) A short story anthology or a magazine

H) A whole trilogy

H) A Book out of your comfort zone written by a BIPOC author.

Fourth Row

H) Rabbit: Rabbit on the cover

H) Green, Purple, Yellow on the title or series title

H) Record: A book published before you were born by an author that isn’t alive anymore or a classic book.

H) I didn’t buy this one – 3 books from the library or 3 ARCs.

Poetry, Nonfiction or Graphic Novel

Fifth Row

H) A book by an author you never read before released in 2022 or 2023.

Knot: Book with a twist.

H) 3 Rereads or 3 favorite authors.

H) Castle: A fantasy/romance or a sci-fi/mystery genre-bender

H) One Book: 3 standalones.

Considerations

1) You don’t have to complete the entire board to be successful at the challenge. One row or one vertical is victory too.

2) You can change two squares of the hard challenge for any two others of the normal challenge if you can’t find a book for it or do it for any other reason.

In my case, I might exchange the third, fourth and fifth book in a series square for another one.

***

You get a dragon emoticon for each row 🐉

In a hard mode row, you get 💥 🐉💥

You get a rocket emoticon for each vertical 🚀

In a hard mode vertical, you get 💥🚀💥

You get a 🏆 if you complete the bingo card!

In hard mode: 💥🏆💥

I will be doing this challenge hard mode in 2023 and I will be posting my TBR in the next post.
