The American Dream
The American Dream is a game that allows players a low-stakes, trial-and-error run at experimenting with spending and budgeting decisions over their simulated life. It’s a “choose your own adventure” type game, with a twist of reality.
How The Game Works: In the game, players choose their own starting point by picking almost any career. They must spend, save, and strategically plan to achieve the best possible outcome. Each new day of game-play represents a new year of life, and all of the challenges, both planned and unplanned, that come with it. Players can monitor their relative success by comparing scores with other players in the same social network or classroom.
The game-play throughout the length of the game will represent roughly 60 years in a person’s adult, financial life.
