Getting hubby to clean!

I admit it, I have a gamer husband (this means that hubby likes to play games online and on gaming systems). He also does not like to clean (neither do I but that is a different post).

So when I ran across "Chore Wars" I knew I had found something great, and I am pretty sure that other ladies related to gamers (Ok, and a few of you that ARE gamers... *cough cough*) will love this site.

The site is set up like D and D (Dungeons and Dragons) with mom as the game master (person that can set up what chores get how many points). You can also set it up that you can earn gold and "treasure" for defeating monsters that are encountered while doing the chore. These treasure can be anything you want, like a ticket to get out of doing one chore next week, or you can have a set amount of gold that can buy them out of a chore or something they are working towards (that toy that they have been begging for?). You can also set "quests" which are one time events (deep clean the basement for that X-mas party?) that can have special rewards. I do suggest that you have everyone in the family play if you are having kids play, so they know just how much work you really do.

Chore Wars is great though it reminded me a little of this comedy sketch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVhwwFHGEFI . Heh heh, Chore Wars is perfect for Alex and me. Thanks for the link.
