Who does this idea benefit, who are the main players and what's in it for them?

Children, parents of children, people interested in board games.

How is your idea specifically using the power of communities to improve financial opportunities and resources?

Playing games is essentially a community event. You need multiple people to play games and you learn from each other and work with each other.

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

create a prototype game

What skills, input or guidance might you be seeking from the OpenIDEO community to help you build out or refine your idea further?

help me refine this idea

This idea emerged from:

  • An individual

We have a bunch of ideas about apps, but what about a board game that teaches financial literacy? Almost like the Game of Life, you would have to go through steps and make decisions about your life. You might start off rich and loose all your money, you might start off medium class and go into credit card debt, you might start off poor and win the lotto. You need to figure out how to earn enough money to feed your family, pay the rent and have some fun.
