Are the long stay-in-place days driving you insane? Cooking non-stop makes you want to burn your kitchen down (hypothetically)? Staring at your work at home makes you sleepy? Boredom during the weekends makes you restless? Cuz SAME. We came up with this fun game to play during the moments you feel you might lose your mind. Hey, mental sanity is as important as physical health.
Winners Earn Points for Prizes
- Each member of the household HAS to participate during “Hunt Hour”. Another excuse to spend quality time.
- Each accomplished task requires proof of the finished quest (pictures will do)
- Winner of the day will get a chance to pick which movie to watch on the next family movie night! Or choose what are they going to eat that night. Your family can decide the prizes before starting the hunts.
- Top point earner of the week will be exempt from chores for one day of their choice.
Find. That. Toilet. Paper.
One member hides the stockpile of toilet paper (ziplock bags for protection). If the remaining players find ALL the rolls in the previously established timeframe, they get ahead in the game; if they don’t the member that hid them wins points.
Speaker of the House
Find the LOUDEST speaker in the whole house. The winner gets the points. Bonus points if the whole team has a dance party while trying out every speaker!
Thank Brew Very Much!
Find the sweetest flavor of coffee (to be decided as a team). The person that volunteers to brew it, earns points.
