Lovebug Scrapbooking – Bugzee Game
Who is ready for the next fun-filled, exciting event here at Lovebug? We’ve got a great one planned for you, sign ups are now open, the game will begin on Monday June 16th and run for approximately 4 weeks. The game is open to everyone, just register in the forum if you aren’t already a member, it’s free!
Who doesn’t love a good game of Yahtzee? Well we are going to play our very own Lovebug version of this beloved family classic…I like to call it Bugzee!
First off, there will be 10 rounds of regular play and a final bonus round (who knows maybe even some extra bonuses). As always, this game will not be a judged competition, the ultimate goal is to participate and create, all levels of scrappers have the same chances of winning, so please don’t be shy or feel intimidated, the more the merrier.
Final details will be given at the beginning of the event, there will be no specific required materials to play this game, whatever is in your stash will more than get you through.. but of course we strongly encourage you to buy up lots of stuff, you are going to use a ton of supplies! Score cards will be made available at the beginning of the event as well, so don’t go running to the dollar store to buy Yahtzee cards, ours are WAY cooler.
I’ve already started getting some prizes ready, they are going to be good, and there are going to be lots of them…oh, did I forget to mention prizes? Silly me
Are you ready to roll? C’mon and join in the fun! You can sign up right up until the end of the first week of the event, so long as you sign up before the first scores are posted. We’ve already got more than 30 players, this is going to be awesome!
