Household chores as a dungeon game – Chore Wars

I’m terribly unmotivated when it comes to housework. I stumbled upon Chore Wars while passing by a blog the other day. Gryphon and I are trying it out. So far, it’s fun! If you want to see how I’m doing specifically, you can visit my character page here: Woolgatherer

Chores are Adventures or Quests. You earn XP for them, as well as (virtual) gold and random treasures. You might encounter monsters. Scorch, the Burning Wizard is one of the denizens of the kitchen that I might run afoul of when I am Baking Bread or Cooking Food, for instance.

So far, so good. We’ll see how well it works in the long run!

Okay – THAT’S COOL! I sent it to my daughter who’s always looking for new ways to be inspired by housework (right) and has done the fly lady stuff, which really worked for her for a while. Let’s see how she likes this one – thanks for posting it!

Ack! You have joined the oppresors who insist we have “clean and inviting ” homes. I hate that ad. Do the Ratties help with the chores?
