Players roll a die and move around the board, collecting paychecks and writing checks for rent, utility, and phone bills. They also encounter unplanned expenses and windfalls, deposit funds in a savings account, pay credit card debts, and collect interest on certificates of deposit. Ideal as enrichment for a money-management curriculum, the set includes a sturdy 20″ x 20″ game board, realistic game money, 92 punch-out game cards, worksheets (including credit card receipts, blank checks, checking/savings registers, and budget sheets), and a detailed instruction booklet that contains reproducible masters of worksheets. Players: 2–6. Approximate time required: one hour.
