Wise Money: The Town of Financial Literacy is a team based game for 2-12 players geared towards ages 13 and up! This makes it a great game for an upper level classroom split in half as well!
What is Wise Money?
Wise Money is an educational game that teaches kids (and adults) about real-world financial situations, and helps older kids learn how to make decisions as a team and discuss problems openly. It is a fantastic pre-cursor to your tween or teen going out into the “real world” by teaching them about financing, credit, identity protection, banking, payday, budgeting, investing, and so much more in the form of a challenging game!
To start the game the first player rolls the dice- both the one with colored dots and the numbered dice. Move your little guy whatever your number dice shows, then find the card that coordinates with the color on your circle colored dice. The team player on your right will draw the card and ask the question.
However if you land on a “Destina” place or a “Discovery” place then you should draw that card. If you answer the card correctly then you can advance to however many numbers the dice is showing. If you answer incorrectly the other team players will have a chance to get it right.
Can your teenager answer all of these questions?
