I’m so, so excited to announce the second Summer Bored Games! Many of you heard about and/or participated in SBG 2018 and I’m thrilled that it’s returning this year.
If you don’t know what SBG is, you’re gonna need to read the rules if you want to find out. And if you already know, read it again because 1.) you should take time to appreciate all the hard work Clara put into her graphics, 2.) we changed some things, and 3.) we made a really fun trailer this time which you should definitely watch!
Without further ado…
The Summer Bored Games is a fun and creative way to bust boredom this summer, with dozens of wacky challenges, from thoughtful missions to completely random activities. Collect points by completing challenges, and enter to win an awesome prize!

Clara // Clara & Co.
Megan // A Barefoot Gal
Allison // A Farm Girl’s Life
SBG hosts Clara, K. A., Megan, and Allison will take turns posting new challenges once a week for the entire month of July.
Each post will include 35 challenges, all assigned a certain number of points. The harder or wackier the challenge, the more points it gives you!
Participants collect points by successfully completing challenges. The number of challenges you finish is up to you; however, you must complete any weekly challenges in that week alone for those points to count. If you miss a week, feel free to do the challenges just for fun, but they won’t earn you any points toward the giveaway.
In each of the challenge posts, a survey will be provided that participants can use to send their points from the completed challenges to a host blogger for a chance to win a prize (host bloggers are not eligible for the prize). However, if a participant would rather conquer the challenges just for fun and not win a prize, they can simply complete the challenges however they wish and not worry about keeping track of points.
SBG PHOTOS: You can earn up to 15 extra points by submitting up to 5 pictures per week relating to challenges you’ve done. Each photo will earn 3 points, so if you enter the maximum amount of photos every week, you will earn 60 bonus points. However, it is up to the hosts’ discretion to decide whether or not the photo should count (i.e. if you send us a photo of a computer for “follow a new blog”). We love to see any and all of your photos so you don’t have to stop at five, but you’ll only get points for five photos each week. Unless you say otherwise, we may add your photos to the next challenge post so others can see what fellow participants are up to! We’ll provide an email address for you to send the photos to in each weekly post.
Prizes come in a three-tier winner system. Participants are entered for a chance to win the prize corresponding to their point range.
If, at the end of the challenge, you have 0-50 points, you are not eligible to win a prize. If you are in the lowest prize tier, which is for participants with 51-200 points, you have a chance of winning a $10 Amazon or Etsy gift card. If you are in the middle prize tier, which is for participants with 201-350 points, you have a chance of winning a $15 Amazon or Etsy gift card. If you are in the top prize tier, which is for participants with 351+ points, you have a chance of winning a $20 Amazon or Etsy gift card.
At the end of the challenge, we’ll tally up each participant’s total points, fit them into the proper point tier, and random-generate the winners. If you work hard, you can earn yourself more of a chance for more of a prize!
