The Budgeting Game puts your child in the role of being a college student with a part-time job who will learn to manage their variable weekly income from their jobs to balance their known bills and their unknown/random expenses to try and hit their savings goals at the end of each month. Each “Month” in the game takes about 45 minutes to complete.
To play, Your child will roll virtual dice to progress through the game, moving forward a couple days at a time. At the end of each dice roll, they will encounter an unexpected (and usually unpleasant) event that will impact their cashflow – a flat tire on the way to work, an unexpected inspection from their landlord, and hundreds of other realistic situations. Your child will also choose how to spend each weekend – work extra hours for extra cash, study for their classes, take care of chores, or spend time with friends.
