i'm pretty sure doubledutch has to do the invites...as she is the "dungeon master."

i don't think she's left for good. she's just not on the board yet this week.

i think the thread was kivgaen's "i live in a dirty house" thread, but i don't know who mentioned chore wars. i just thought it sounded like fun. i like scrolling through the list of chores and realizing i'm doing more than i thought.

Ok, that's great to know! Thank you!

I'm glad you like the new adventure. I just added budgeting and planning a menu as well. Hopefully those will come in handy to someone else as well.

that's great! you know, there are so many things i do that get overlooked, by dh & by me, things that benefit our family. it's nice to have someone else name those as things that "count".

I'm trying to set up a chore wars for DS1's chores. Each gold = 1 cent (he's supposed to do chores for allowance). I'm going to make the monsters drop things he can use for things irl- strings of cloth for a new piece of clothing, Lego pieces for a Lego set, metal pieces for game time (or a new game, depending on how much he's collected). I was thinking maybe of having some of them drop water, sugar, herbs, berries, flour and things of that nature which he can then "mix" and trade in for treats as well. Sugar + herbs + water = soda. That kind of thing.
What do you guys think?

I *just* realized that there's an adventures list in the top right hand corner. I kept going to the Adventures page!
