Mundane Household Item Challenge (d-Infinity Live! Series 6 Episode 19)

The d-Infinity crew is challenged to come up with a game mechanic that makes use of a common household item. Will our intrepid game designers be able to make a game out of spoons, a blender and throw pillows? Tune in to find out.
 
The rules are as follows:
* Find an item in your house (this item cannot have an overt gaming purpose)
* Create a game mechanic using this item (a game mechanic here refers to a rule that helps determine outcomes in your game, rolling dice is an example)
* For bonus points create an entire game using your new mechanic as  the core means of playing it
 
Hosts will share their choices and explain their gaming use.
