Saturday, March 21st mark[ed] the official start date of the ninth annual Once Upon a Time Challenge. This is a reading and viewing and gaming event that encompasses four broad categories: Fairy Tale, Folklore, Fantasy and Mythology, including the seemingly countless sub-genres and blending of genres that fall within this spectrum. The challenge continues through June 21st and allows for very minor (1 book only) participation as well as more immersion depending on your reading/viewing/gaming whims.
The Once Upon a Time IX Challenge has a few rules:
Rule #1: Have fun.
Rule #2: HAVE FUN.
Rule #3: Don’t keep the fun to yourself, share it with us, please!
Rule #4: Do not be put off by the word “challenge.”
I know I flaked–at least on the reviewing for–the Sci-Fi Experience. I did read some excellent reviews and had some amusing screen time and reads. The Quests are exciting: I’m thrilled to see the inclusion of International TableTop as part of a Quest this year.
Natalya will be taking over the blog for National Poetry Month (April), but I should be able to chime in now and again. We most certainly should find a poem befitting one of the four categories.
