The Best Way to Prepare!

Read as many Lone Star books as you can! Challenge yourself to read one that is from a genre that you don't normally choose! The more we read, the better our chances!

How will we play the game?

In the Matchbook Competition, you will be given a quote from on of the twenty 2013 Lone Star books. The quote will not contain proper nouns, and it may or may not be a direct quote from a character. You can prepare by reading as many books as you can. At our February book club meetings, we will practice playing.

You can practice by taking a Lone Star Book and looking through it to find your own good quotes! A good quote will give the players a hint about the setting, the plot, or the characters. It should be somewhat unique to that particular book.

Sample game quotes and answers:

  • "I'm so lost in thought that I almost miss the parachute as it floats right by me."

(Answer: The Hunger Games)(The reason this is a good quote is that the little

parachutes that deliver help are crucial to the plot.)

  • "Hideous in the extreme, the creature looked like the very essence of evil." (Answer: Killer Pizza) (This is a strong quote because readers of this book will recognize the description as referring to the monsters.)
