About the game
The aim of the game is to show how important it is to have a budget and how this can help you save towards your goals.
Designed for between 3 – 5 players, each player chooses a budget sheet, which has a set of expenses and a unique savings goal. Then it’s time for players to show off their money skills and play smart to balance their expenses and reach their savings goal. Action cards add an exciting twist; players can use these cards to their advantage. The first player to complete their budget sheet wins the game!
Maximising the learning benefits
Teachers can download a guide that can be used to as a lesson plan to help ensure that the game is easily integrated into the curriculum as a learning tool.
