I was watching a video for the Bi-Annual Bibliothon and I was inspired to make my own M.A.S.H from YA books (mostly). I thought I would share my own page as well as a blank one so that you guys can make your own if you want!
- Link back to my original post on Kyera’s Library so I can see all your answers! (Be sure to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my URL)
- Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show the community some love!
- Obviously, come up with your wonderful answers!
- Don’t forget to tag others to keep the tag going!
For those who are unfamiliar, I’ll (attempt to) explain the game. You have ten different categories and you want to populate each of them with four different answers. Depending on your preference, you can do four good options or two good and two bad. The second makes the game a little more exciting because you are worried you’ll end up with a bad option.
In the classic game, you would be doing this with another person. They would tell you to close your eyes and draw a spiral. When they tell you to stop – you stop and count the number of lines in your spiral. Essentially, if you drew a line through the center of the spiral, how many times would it intersect? That is your magic number.
If you’re by yourself, you can always just pick a number and use that as your magic number.
Starting at M.A.S.H. count each option until you reach the magic number then cross it off. For example, if your magic number was 3 you would count 1 – M, 2 – A, and 3 – S. Then you would cross off S. H would become your new 1. You continue this through each category, crossing off as you go until there is one option left for each category.
What you have left is your YA story! If what I wrote made no sense to you, sorry – you can always go to this website which explains how to play with some pictures.
Without further ado, here are my options:
I debated for a while about which number I wanted to use since I was sitting here on my computer alone and couldn’t properly do the spiral, but I ended up going with 8. Since it’s a larger number, I couldn’t immediately guess what my options would be.
I decided to turn my results into a dramatic book summary. Enjoy!
