Science Fiction vs Fantasy Bingo 2018

Welcome to my low-stress, super relaxed reading* challenge for next year! You can choose to do a line, try to do as much as possible in your preferred genre, attack it randomly or go for the full house, it's really up to you. Some of the squares are geared more to one genre but all are open to interpretation. I've laid out the card so that a down line is more easily done in a single genre if you so wish.


The Squares

Space
AI
Wibbly Wobbly Time Travel
It's the End of the World As We Know It
Alien Invasion
Plague
Dystopia
Alternate Reality
Cyberpunk
This is Totally Going to Happen One Day
Asian
African
Rebellion
Independent
South American
Portal
Fantastic Beasts
Haunted
Undead
Re-Telling
Bite Me
Kings, Queens and Long, Lost Relatives
Demonic
Immortal
Epic

Will there be prizes?

Sure, if you sign up and link back to this post, you can enter to win a SFF book of your choice (see below). Depending on how many people actively participate there may be more prizes during 2018, but I don't want to commit myself if there's only two of us doing it!

What books count?

Science fiction, fantasy, horror, speculative and magical realism are all OK.

Do I need a blog to take part?

Nope! You can sign up on any social platform (I need to be able to see your sign-up post if you're entering the giveaway though). Please use the hashtag #SFvsFBingo so others can find your posts and see what you've been reading.

Can I link up my reviews?

I will be posting some linkies here on my blog in the new year, one for science fiction and another for fantasy, so we can see which genre "wins" at the end of the year. You don't need to link up, or even review your books, if you don't want to. Like I said, it's super relaxed. If you want to sign up but not enter the giveaway, please just leave a comment.

You can download an alternate square version of the bingo card here but please refer back to the challenge when using it.

*You could totally do this as a photo challenge if you'd prefer. If you're signing up on Instagram, please mention/tag @patchworkbunny so I know you're taking part.

  2. I love this board! It's so well put together. I'm really interested in doing this. I'm curious, for prompts like "independent" and "epic", did you have a certain kind of book in mind or is it up to our interpretation?

    1. Thanks! It will be great to have you on board. All the prompts are open to interpretation. I was personally thinking independent publisher and epic fantasy but you can put your own spin on it, i.e. an independent character or a super long book.

  6. It sounds fun - a nice way for me to pick what I read, and lots of things I'm already planning to read will fit into the categories :-)

  7. Love this challenge except for one thing...No steampunk square. :(

    1. I've tried to make it so plenty of squares can be interpretated loosely so there's no reason you couldn't read steampunk for several of them. I've only read steampunk that fits into fantasy genres so sorry if you don't think the prompts work for what you read.
