The Summer Bored Games, Week 3

Hello, dears!

Are you excited for the next round of SBG? I AM! WOOHOO! Thank you all for your participation so far, and for making it so fun to host. 😀

In case you’d like to review the basic rules of the game, you can check out my introduction post right here. Shall we begin? (That was a rhetorical question, by the way. I’m going to start whether you answered yes or no. *nods*) Ahem.


You have until the end of this week to complete however many of the 35 challenges below you wish to do. This is the only week that you’ll be able to complete these challenges.

When you’ve completed all the challenges you’d like to for the week, submit your points using the survey included in this post (see it below). Please try to submit your results just once per week. I suggest waiting until the end of the week to submit the survey.

Okay, guys, NOW FOR THE CHALLENGES. Are you ready for this? *drum roll*

    1. YIKES, I JUST REALIZED THAT LIKE A MINUTE AGO. Megan is getting that and the form sent out – we totally forgot about it! I’ll update the page in just a few minutes when she finishes it.

  1. Oh wow. I pulled up to third! Yay! This week’s challenges sound like fun!
    Thank you so much gals for hosting this. Remind me to send you pictures of the challenges!

    1. CONGRATULATIONS, JO! And yay, I’m glad they do!
      Why certainly, dear – we’re glad to do it. And okay, I shall remind you.
      P. S. Hey Jo, remember to send us pictures of the challenges. *nods*

      1. Oh! Right! *nods* Did you get my last pictures? Just so I know I sent it to the right email.


  2. Yaaayy!! I’m so excited! (I kept saying “Yes Yes Yes” when I saw this post so that my brother eventually wandered in wondering if I had won something)
    I’ve had fun so far and will hopefully do a lot of these–they look like a lot of fun! We are going to the store today so hopefully I can get some ivory soap, perhaps a new fruit, and contribute $15 toward the groceries…
    One question, what if you already know the sign language alphabet? Would you automatically get the points? Technically I know the ASL alphabet, but I don’t know the BSL(British) one…

      I’m so glad you have had fun so far, and I hope you can do a bunch too! Sounds like a great plan. 😉 Hmm, that’s a good question… I talked to Megan and we thought you should still get the points. Good for you for knowing it! 😀

  3. WHOOP. (Though I’m afraid I’m getting busy and won’t be able to do very many again, but I’m amazed I’m still on the top ten list!)

  4. Ooh!!! So FUN! I think it’s awesome you put the sign language alphabet. That is really good to learn! (I am learning sign language now, and love it.) Anyway, sooo excited!! 😊😂

  5. Ahhh, I’m so excited! These challenges look like so much fun! I completely forgot to submit last weeks points (-_-) but I’ll make up for it this week. 🙂

    Oh, I have a question. *nods* For the last challenge (learn the sign language alphabet)… what if you’ve already learned the sign language alphabet? :/

    1. YAYYY! Aww, that’s too bad. :/ I hope you have fun this week!
      Good question. If you already know the sign language alphabet, good for you! You can still collect the points. 🙂


    1. Aww, yeah. We tried to make the challenges mostly do-able for everyone, but some won’t be possible for everyone. :/ I’m sorry about that! You’ll probably be able to do some that others can’t do, though! 🙂


  6. Argh, Allison, I’m sorry but I think I’ll have to drop out. 😦 I’ve been really busy lately, so I don’t think that I can do this anymore. It was so much fun, though – it’s been a blast! 😀


    1. Aww, we’ll miss you. ❤ That’s okay, though – it’s really no pressure since you’re not on a team or anything. If you’re busy, then yay, you’re not bored! If you’re bored later, feel free to join in again. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it, though!
