    Description

    From Game Booklet:

    "This fun, interactive board game teaches children ages 9 to 13 how having financial goals helps families make smart money choices and live quality lives. Pick a character; choose a path. What sharing, saving and spending choices will you make to reach your character's goal? Roll the die and see where the money choices you make lead you."

    Ostensibly, this game seeks to teach children the pros and cons of different spending profiles. Players choose a character mat featuring one of the characters, including Craig Cautious, Mike Mega Purchase, Wella D'Versified, Livva Below Means, Minnie Miserly, Charlie Givva, Sandy Status Quo, and Sammy Spend-a-Lot. Each character has a salary, a cash goal, and varying goals in four categories: Necessities, Save, Share, and Spend.

    Players choose a path on the board among Share, Save, or Spend, and move a pawn down that path collecting a card from the appropriate stack on every move. Each card has actions for the player to carry out, such as "You received interest on your savings -- Receive $50 for each {Savings Token} you have." Players can change paths when they reach a corner or when they reach a transition bridge space. In addition to the decks for Save, Share, and Spend, there is a Wild deck that players draw from when they land on a Wild space; Wild actions are a bit random and are to simulate the ups and downs of life.

    At the end of the game there is a guided section for parents to discuss the game aspects with their children, on topics such as: the importance of sharing, the value of saving, the value of investing, and further opportunities to engage children in learning about successful money management.
