Chore Wars

I was just reading some more of Jane McGonigal’s book, Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They can Change the World, and came across a game called Chore Wars.  Basically, a household signs up and each person creates a characters. You develop the character by gaining XP (experience points) and virtual gold by epic quests.  These quests are actually doing household chores in real life.  Chore Wars sounds a little crazy,  but given her analysis of why games make us happy, it actually seems plausible.

Here is a video about Chore Wars:
