Million Minute Family Challenge! You up for it?

According to their site the purpose of the Million Minute Family Challenge is to provide a simple but fun way for family and friends to enjoy the benefits of board games. The challenge runs from Sept. 1st- December 31st. This is their 9th year!

Games are a fun way to interact with a group! I know that my daughters love to play APPLES TO APPLES when they have a group of friends over. It is a great way to interact with everyone!

What do you need to do? Minimum they are wanting every team to commit to playing a game for at least 20 minutes between September and December and record their time on the website.
Their goal with groups working in all 50 states is to reach 1 million minutes in 2009. They figure if 1,000 families, groups or organizations X 50 states X 20 minues of game play = 1 million minutes!

How fun! I hope you take the challenge, create a group name and log your minutes! Pass this information on to your child's teacher. I bet the class would have fun with this. If you are homeschooled then you can easily do this daily or weekly! Their goal is 20 minutes of game time one time in those 3 months. Just think if you played 20 minutes once a week!

Pass this information on to Libraries, Senior Living Homes, Schools, Girl/Boy Scout Troups, PTA/PTO, Preschools, Daycares,etc.

So take up the challenge and join my group
CrAzY gAmErS and have some fun!

We will post our minutes and games we play as the Challenge continues!
