Gamification is a method of improving engagement amongst users. Corporate companies started using gamification to retain clients, elicit personal information or generate additional income from their clients.

In the end, the company covers less risky drivers, and drivers feel gratified because they beat their own score and pay lower premiums. This concept of gamification could be applied to teach children to do chores.

Enter, Extreme Chores. On the cover, tools are displayed, such as a rake and shovel. There is also a TV on the cover that shows the game in action. It really looks like a very entertaining video game that turns chores into fun.

But that is not the case. The only game being played here is by the parents, since there is no such game as Extreme Chores. The only thing that is real, however, is the box with the enticing pictures on it.

Extreme Chores is only an empty box that parents can use to prank their children. The empty container could be used to put the real gift inside, thereby tricking the child but also surprising them with a gift they really wanted.
