Join Families Across the US and CA to Tally One Million Minutes of Family Fun! @PatchProducts #MillionMinuteChallenge

Million Minute 02

You Can be a Part of the Million Minute Family Challenge!

Last year, families across the US and Canada made a deliberate effort to spend more time together having fun by participating in the Million Minute Family Challenge.  This year, you can join in, too.  It is FREE and it is EASY!

The challenge simply asks the registered participants to spend time together playing non-digital games and to log the amount of minutes played via the website.  The goal is to have a group total of at least one million minutes logged in over four months time.

Last year, 1,232,187 minutes were recorded!

I hope you will join in and spread the word - it is a valuable exercise!   It could also make it easier to incorporate regular family game time into your schedule after the challenge has ended.  It really is so much fun.  We love our game times, and we are always asked to bring our games along to parties and get togethers.

The challenge runs from September through December, and it is a great reason to plan for unplugged family time.  Registration is now open for 2012.


In addition to having a wonderful time, sharing some laughs, and enjoying each other's company, there are other benefits for joining.  Here are  few:

  • Online organizational materials, including a tally sheet to track minutes
  • Access to a community where members share stories, photos, and videos
  • Weekly featured games - and corresponding game night ideas
  • A teacher's area with lesson plans and a history of Games
  • A parents area with ideas and advice to make your game nights a success
  • A Facebook community for those who enjoy social media
  • Special discounts and occasional giveaways of games
  • More face to face family time.
