I like the mini idea - so long as it's stuff that will get our heart rates up or make us sweat a bit for at least 10 minutes - get our metabolisms up outside of our regular workout times. Might be a problem for those who work outside the home though... would have to be 24 hours per mini?

PS LOVING amazing race. Gives me a place to 'brag' that I've done my minutes for the day lol.

I think an ongoing challenge consisting of lots of mini challenges would be fun. I have heard doctors say that it's good to work out in smaller increments through out the day...

Say 3 months...

On most days there are new challenges...say Complete 5 Advanced Rythm Parades or Play 30 games of practice tennis and submit best score, highest score wins extra points (3 points), walk 15 minutes, etc... and every one that completed the challenge receives 1 point. At the end of the 3 months you could come choose different winners...highest score...highest scoring team...most motivated...most weight loss...ya know...something like that.

I sure enjoy doing mini challenges. It would be awesome to do as many as I could through out each day. It would keep me on my toes.

How about bowling, or a where are U going type challenge, kinda works like this, several different areas in the US etc. are picked and the miles are calculated. each team has to make it to that specific location before they can proceed to the next location. kinda like the amazing race.. there can be road blocks ect... or we can do a tag team type challenge. just a few to think about..

I'm going to copy over part of my post from another thread since it seems to belong here.

As for the Olympics, over a year ago I created a Wii-lympic challenge for this team to run during the summer Olympics and you could just alter it to run during the winter Olympics. You could use that format and perhaps just add or change games/events. It's a fairly easy set up but requires daily attention to run. Lots of daily attention. Anyway, here's the link to the original thread:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

geboard_thread.asp?board=6329x6743x1R>7006114


The first post has the instructions. You'll have to look through to see the posts of winners and event announcements. Also we sent Sparkgoody medals to the 3 medals winners of each event.

Wiiolympics using the Fit Plus sounds like fun. I also like the Biggest Loser idea.
I haven't been impressed with the Jilian Michaels Wii DVD. It would get boring pretty quickly for me.

I know there has been talk about a possible challenge with the fit plus but I didn't get it for Christmas but if it is worth it I would buy it for a challenge. If a challenge comes up using the Biggest loser game or the new Jillian Michaels (which I havent tried yet) game I am ready.

Ya'll are doing a great job on the challenges. I know the amount of work that goes into creating and then running them. Brava!

As for suggestions, I've always been fond of a ninja training school. Or an ongoing D&D one where you build your character and go on quests. Gotta never give up the dream right?

For something more doable, I had an idea I was going to originally use for the D&D challenge. It was going to be for the schools (to learn a class) but I think it works well enough as just a general race - a 2 tier obstacle course. One course for advanced exercisers and one for beginner exercisers. You'd exercise to travel between obstacles (why mess with what works). Then each obstacle would require you either perform certain tasks or achieve a certain score in a game. In order to accommodate the various games people have and don't have you could give multiple ways through an obstacle.

Setting it up would take work, but it would run easily once posted since people would be responsible for tracking their own progress through the course. And if they wanted to run it multiple times to improve upon the time (days) it takes them to get through, they could do that as well.

Brain doesn't like mornings, but hopefully that made sense.

Suggestion for a Wii Fit Plus challenge. The cycling has some variations. We could do a particular level and see who can find all the flags the fastest. I've had to give up sometimes without finding them all. Once I was kicked out because I wouldn't give up and it just kicked me out! (I guess you only get to try for one hour at a time!!)

Just saw the message regarding a Bingo game. I've got one that is done in Excel. It creates the bingo cards and generates the numbers (or words) called.

To make it work for the Wii, we could come up with a list of words that are Wii related. With all the games available we should be able to come up with a fair number of them. We could use SPARK as the free space. We could have a different game each week. Regular Bingo, Letter X, Cover all - whatever - just like at a regular bingo game. Any interest?

Since the bowling league might be coming back around...what about a golf challenge or a tennis challenge of some kind. I stink at the golf but I like the tennis. Plus the boxing. Another DDR challenge would be great as well.

I like the idea of keeping the draft to the leaders so no one knows who was chosen last. We would have to figure out how many players we need and then have a sign up time before the draft. That would be fun for the leaders.

I don't know what the next challenge will be but the next one will be run by someone else as I'm going to be needing a break after this one. Plus around the same time MOMMY_T's new baby should be arriving so I expect she will be pretty busy.

A couple of thoughts I want to offer for consideration. Firstly not everyone wants to do bowling so could there be an alternative to run at the same time? More work I know, sorry. Secondly, the idea of drafting team members is all very exciting for the team leaders, but for those drafties that are not so active it could be rather demoralising being left til last? So if this sort of thing was used, maybe it could be kept private between the leaders, so no member knows if they were first or last choice? That way it's encouraging for everyone? Or am I being too soft?

Oh, and if you go with the snakes and ladders idea you may want to make it more than 10 hours per square as a couple of the teams in the Amazing Race can do 20 hours per day. I imagine it would be hard to organise if a team clears 2 squares per day?

We have a team goal of 10 minutes of Wii exercise games activity each day. We also have weekly challenges. But usually the activities are a bit harder and they're usually done in teams, so that each member is helping the team and not having to go all alone.

I could see a lot of things you could do with a "games of chance" (i.e. BINGO, Roulette, cards)

Like exercise X much by this time to earn a roll of the dice, or a Bingo number, or a card.

Ok, here's a thought that's been circling around in my brain, kind of like a roulette wheel. B I N G O - B I N G O - B I N G O and BINGO was his name oh! Sorry, get carried away sometimes, just be thankful you don't have to listen to me sing it.

Seriously, I think a version of Bingo and/or Roulette is doable and maybe could include some of the things everyone seems to want to try.

P.S. I love the drafting idea, something like the Fantasy Football I play. Each team leader alternately gets to choose from the draft.

Not saying it wouldn't be fun...just that we really haven't had any challenge ideas that are that flexible...lol.

well, another thing is that we usually have a set number of teams based on what is going on...like this one that's currently running was set up to have either 8 or 10 teams (definitely an even number, as the teams challenge each other at each stop). For the Leprechaun Hunt, we had to have the right number of teams for all the challenge squares (team against team) to be used right.

So, it would also depend on how the challenge is setup--if it would allow that...and there would probably have to be a delay between sign-ups and the game starting to allow for the adjustments to how many teams there were.

I'm sure it would pose some logistical challenges (ok, nightmares!), but it sure would be fun to be able to pick our own teams. Perhaps there could be a challenge with X number people on a team, you can sign up as a team if you have enough team members, those who don't have a team or don't want to try and recruit others could post in a "Draft Me" thread. This could even be part of the challenge - have "qualifying" stats posted like high scores for several games so people can try and draft players to compliment their teams.

Oh, I can see the possibilities...and the very hard work to make it happen...

Have I thanked you guys enough for all the great challenges you have put together and all the hard work that you do? We all really appreciate it!

picking teams could be hard--there's lots of people that sign-up for the challenges. Also, we try to balance out the ones that have Wii Fit and the ones that don't to the teams (that's why we always ask).

For a future challenge it would be great if we could pick our own team. I think it would be fun trying to recruit people for a team.

I love the snakes and ladders idea (that's what it's called here in UK). Especially working out by hours exercised, as that allows us to include any exercise we do. I can include my cross-trainer too that way. I need a push to up my exercise more.

I'd like to third (or sixth, or whatever number I am) the suggestion of a bowling league. It might be one that should wait for fall, though; I guess it would be difficult to keep everyone indoors this summer!

lol.

Leaders need a bit of a break--and also some time to plan out some stuff.

If you subscribe to new topic notifications for the team, you'll get one someday that will be sign-up for another activity.

Guess we do need to get back to weekly challenges too. Meylose just needed a little break after doing so much with the Leprechaun Hunt.

Not to be impatient, BUT, any idea when the next challenge might start??? I keep checking everyday waiting for information to be posted. I loved the last challenge, even though I was only participating for a short time!

Ooohhh I like the ideas you all have been brainstorming about here. I spent many hours playing chutes & ladders as a child & then with my child, so liking that idea a lot.

Amazing Race -- Love the show, would love the challenge.

Yes, I watched the Mole too, VIOLETTE1. Good idea to tie a challenge to that approach too. Have to admit that I always got lost in the Mole and at different times, suspected almost everyone. LOL
