2022-2023 Ten Pins Game

The 2022-2023 Ten Pins Reading Game at Mystillery Lanes has closed for the season. Please come back for the 2023-2024 season, which opens October 1, 2023!

Your goal is to knock down all ten pins by reading books with numbers in their titles, using additional books and a little math if needed. But wait, there's more! The more books you can use, the higher your score! This game is seasonal (it alternates with Abra Cadavers). Read the General Information page and start knocking down pins!

As with all Mystillery challenges, short stories are welcome here! Check out your mystery anthologies/collections - shorts with numbers in titles are pretty common!
  (submit once for each pin).
