What do you get when you cross an RPG with ADD?

This is not a sponsored post.

The answer to the title question is not, in fact, every 12-year-old boy in every American middle school, ever.

My husband - a supergeek manchild with ADD . . . whom I love - was demonstrating the prowess of a new organizational app to my friend First Laura for her tween son.  I realized this app is genius, must be shared, and could perhaps save the world.

The app of which I speak is Epic Win and it is basically a to-do list for the Dungeon and Dragons set or, for those in the know, an RPG for the ADD.  That last sentence was a whole buncha alphabet for a whole buncha awesome.

Epic Win allows you set up your to-do list as a quest itinerary, one for which you will be handsomely rewarded with all of the lovelies you'd come to expect from role-playing games: gold, health, hearts.  

First, create your avatar.

Next, start listing those chores or tasks and assign them a reward of your choice.

Once you have achieved your task, you can chart your progress on the map of Mordor.

Never has dishwashing seemed so appealing!

The app is available for $2.99 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Go forth and conquer (that load of laundry)!
