Though she was in the process of editing her latest book and working as a freelance writer, Ché LaRhue could not deny it—she was so bored. Always the most creative person in the room, she took inspiration from her quarantine boredom to create Bored as F**k, her “bored” games company. Her eponymous flagship product is a speed-based strategy game.
Sharee Jones, a.ka. Ché LaRhue, is a published author, public speaker, entrepreneur, and a master coach. She has been making the most of quarantine—no matter how boring it has been—by diving into work, hosting workshops, and launching her own company.
Ché started hosting Airbnb comedy workshops to beat quarantine boredom with other people. She also took a deep dive into viral online challenges, which are popular on social networking service TikTok. These fun and quirky challenges led to the creation of her “bored” game company. She has created four “bored” games in total: Bored as F**k, The “Greatest” Bored Game, Say It Ain’t So!, and Who’s Got Jokes? She has also created an app to go with her games, which will roll out in the summer of 2020.
She believes that her new and innovative board games are the perfect opportunity to come together with people from all walks of life, have some laughs, make new friends, and build a strong community that sticks together when boredom sets in. To aid COVID-19 relief, she will donate 5 percent of all net proceeds from each purchase to Direct Relief to support communities suffering from the pandemic.
Ché hasn’t stopped writing even in quarantine. Her latest book is a summary of all the lessons that she has learned in her adult life. Aptly titled Comprehensive Guide to All the Sh*t They Didn’t Teach You in School, the book unlocks her secrets on how to live a happy life, make money, and meditate, among many things. With this guide, she hopes to teach people the things that will help them live a happy, healthy, and productive life.
She published her first book in September 2009, A Diva’s Guide to Surviving a Recession. The book features Jane, an out-of-work marketing specialist navigating a recession. The book will be adapted into a short film for Amazon that will be produced by BPG Film and Television.
In addition, she is the author of children’s book series Anne Can!, The Nice Nice Book, and Bully Me, Bully Me Not. This year, she is releasing the story of her life so far in How I Got Here, which is partly a memoir and partly self-help. Ché is familiar with navigating through hard times. After suffering a back injury, she lost her career as a carpenter and had to start all over again. She hopes that with her book, she can become an example to readers who are facing difficult times and show them that they can create opportunities even in the face of obstacles.
