Okay, there are two different methods to make a list for a game.  You can make a "book list".  These are not sortable and can be awkward to work with.  But you just copy the URL.  Or you can make a Tag list, using the Tag feature and a very unique tag.  Please note that you do not want to use a Tag that anyone else might use.

There is a third option, to use a PBS List, such as your Reminder List, and remove the Member Only part of the URL. 

I'm going to see if I can find directions to copy.

These are Nicole's directions from a TBR game.

There are a couple of  options for posting your tbr pile:

1.)    Use the pbs list feature to create your own tbr list

2.)    Create a tag using your tbr pile.   To do this: Go  to books you want to tag,  click “ tag” and then name your tag (ex. Nicole G.’s TBR).   

To create your link:  type the name of the link ( ex: Nicole G's TBR)  and highlight it, Click on the link symbol that is above the text box highlight and paste your web address into the link.  * note if you are using book tags and see mbr_only, it needs to be taken out in order for others to see the list

Here is an older thread talking about posting links.
