The inevitable result.

OH GOD DAMN WHAT A GREAT IDEA.

I was always advised never to keep score between myself and my wife, and having been happily married 8 years, it appears to be good advice.

I'm going to try this anyway, eh? Ha ha! Plus this might help my two older boys get their chores done; probably better, less negative help than threatening to throw the Wii away, anyway.

I hate these faction grinds. And for what? An epic mount?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I bet if I finally clean the crap off the bottom of the fridge, my roommate's gonna want to give me an epic mount.

Clever. I like. Not that chores are an issue between my husband and I but I can see this being a good thing for the kids in a few years time.

You strike bathroom mold with dual wielded Scrubbing Bubble and Lysol melee attack for a critical hit, +5XP

/Equip mop

You are not able to do that yet!


Back to grid paper and shiny star stickers for me...

Are married people that hard up for wild sex?

Luckily, my girlfriend's too busy doing chores to log them on some website.

I can't wait to send my wife an invite to Helen Keller Sound Machine, the heroic party on a quest for Near-Godliness!

I'm perfectly happy losing at that game.

Playing it would merely add to my list of chores. I can barely keep track of how much toilet paper we have left, (never enough) much less log my points online.

It might be worth it if winning enough points won you a housecleaning robot.

This is great, except in my apartment one of my roommates is well known for cheating at role playing games (He'll fkae attributes and dice rolls). I have a feeling this will be no exception, and he will be creating BS campaigns or clainign full XP when he only half-assedly cleaned the kitchen.

Man, I sound bitter.

Finally, a game around here that I can totally OWN.

These points are backdated, yes?

Looks great! I just signed up.

Penny Arcade nails this one...

That Penny Arcade strip is TOTALLY what happened in my house yesterday, I'm told. My little brother washed all the dishes because he didn't want my mom to get the XP points!
