A new game at Checking Boxes!

First of all, check out the new blog header for Checking Boxes!

That's not the most exciting part. Now click the baby.

Woohoo! Now you can play Beat the Paperchase at Checking Boxes! The instructions should appear, including a Play button. You need a score of 1400 to beat the paperwork.

When you've had a play, fill in the poll on the left to let me know how you went. (Poll will be active for 60 days, so if you're reading this through the archives it won't be there).

I should note that I haven't tested this on any machine than my little Mac using Firefox, so it would be great if you would let me know whether it's actually working out there in different browsers etc. It's taken me hours of playing with code to get it to work in Blogger, so I hope it's all functioning correctly!

All credit to my magnificent friend and colleague Kristine (check out a couple of her many websites - like Flash Classroom or Games in Learning). Thanks Kris, love your work and appreciate our new header and game heaps. It'll give our adopting friends something to do during the loooong wait!

How are you guys? I was thrilled to see your comment, I haven't heard from you in such a long time.
Yes, deer here can be a nuisance. They try to control the population by having a scheduled hunting season each year.
I'm not big on hunting myself, but my husband's family is filled with avid hunters.
Keep in touch!

Love the header! & great game. We finished our individual interview and got 2 more pieces of paperwork back via mail so it's been a little exciting around here. Though I do hope they don't write up every single question they asked. Then the government would know more about me than my best friends! Hope your interview went well.

Great fun, but as expected I was overwhelmed by paperwork.

Aw, then I tried 4 times to get you a baby and didn't manage at all! Lucky I don't give up so easily on the real thing!

I love the game - it's so cute!!!
