About

Finally, a chore chart kids love!

Chorey Charts are easy to build and easy to play. You can adjust the game to your kid's abilities and age. Chorey Charts can help you teach your children concepts like gratitudeaccountabilitydelayed gratificationcontractingnegotiation, and life hacking.

How do you play Chorey Charts?

Take the Chorey-entation to learn how:

Turn chores into a game!

With Chorey Charts, your kids aren't doing chores; they're playing a game! When players can see the rewards they can earn, don't be surprised if they're asking for more things to do every week.

You and your child can enjoy both a weekly and a long term record of tasks completed and good deeds done. Chorey Charts can be put anywhere that supports a magnet, and you can write on every piece with a dry erase marker. It's adjustable and stackable, so you can play any way you want. 

Words are scarce in Chorey Charts so the game can be played with younger children still learning to read and those with special needs.

All pieces are:

  • Modular:  Chorey Charts is stackable can be set up any way you want. It grows with your child and can be customized to their needs and abilities.
  • Dry Erase: Each token and strip in Chorey Charts is dry erase. Feel free to draw on and modify them until you and your child are happy.
  • Magnetic: The chart system is magnetic and can be put anywhere that can hold a magnet. This could be your fridge, a dry-erase board, a toolbox, or even a locker!
Chorey Charts are easy to build and easy to play.

The story thus far...

Nick Maglione came up with Chorey Charts when his first daughter was a baby. She didn't have much use for magnets and was terrible at chores.

He shelved the idea until she was 4 and some chores needed doing, then he created the first prototype. She's 9 now and they've been playing it every week since. Her 6-year-old sister plays, too.

He built Chorey Charts kits for friends to try and he refined the design over the years. When he showed it off, folks would often ask him where they could buy their own.

When he looked at what it would cost to bring the game to market, he found that the costs of printing were more prohibitive the fewer he ordered.

That brings us to the very Kickstarter you're reading. With your help and enough preorders, the price to print each game becomes low enough to spawn a business and bring Chorey Charts to awesome parents like you.

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

When building a game as pretty and unique as Chorey Charts, there are chances for mishaps along the supply chain. We've done everything we can to get the game ready for printing, but here is where we see the risks:

When Chorey Charts finalizes contracts with the printers, we might be sourcing parts of the game from a few different places.

This could lead to quality control issues and delays in assembly.

To mitigate this, we plan on ardent press checks and close collaboration with our printers. We'll use reputable assemblers and distributors to make sure our supporters get their games before the start of the next school year.

Chorey Charts doesn't exist without her supporters. A preorder is a contract and a promise. If there are delays, Chorey Charts will contact every sponsor affected and do everything possible to make them happy and whole.

And, the irony of a company that builds chore charts flaking on a promise is just too great. We don't know if the world can take it.
