Hey everyone, Slick Dungeon here, hoping February was an amazing month for you and that March will be even better.

In January I put out three challenges for this year, one for books, one for movies and one that combined books, movies and role playing games. I wanted to take today to see if anyone has done any of the challenges and update everyone on my own progress.
As a reminder, if you complete any of the three challenges and talk about it on your blog, I will review anything in that category that you want me to and post that review on my blog with a link to your blog.
Don’t worry if you haven’t started, each of my challenges is only 12 items long and there is still plenty of the year to go.
In case you want to participate and still need the challenges, just take a look at this post and download yourself a neat little PDF or three.
Now, the moment you have all been waiting for, how did I, Slick Dungeon do on my own challenges in February? Let’s find out.
Challenge 1: Book Challenge
Ack, this one is the one I failed at this month. I did get a book recommended to me and I have started reading it. It’s by one of my favorite authors Isaac Asimov and is called The Gods Themselves. I’m about half way done so there should be a review for it in the next week or two here. In case you want to get it for yourself, check it out below.
Challenge 2: Movie Challenge
My challenge this month was to watch three films by the same director. I went with 3 early Alfred Hitchcock films. Challenge completed on this one woohoo! If you want to know what I thought about the movies check out the posts for them below.
Challenge 3: Read-Watch-Play Challenge
This month for the Read-Watch-Play challenge, I did one of the watch challenges. I chose to watch (well re-watch) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. While I love the book and I enjoy the film well enough, I think there is considerable room for improvement in the film. Check out my review for it here.
Well, that’s two out of three for February. Let’s hope I will be able to complete all the challenges in March. Here’s what I am going to be attempting.
- A book recommended by a friend (left over from February)
- A book you swore you would never read
- A movie that scares you
- Play a Dungeons & Dragons one shot adventure
Good luck to the rest of you out there and if you have decided to participate, feel free to let me know how it is going in the comments.
