The game includes a game board, play money, investment sheets and various cards. Players start by receiving an investment sheet and a seed capital of $100,000. Game play continues with players moving around the board, landing on fields like Housing and Bank, and drawing from three decks of cards: News Flash, Knowledge and Wild.
The player who doubles her net worth and acquires a proper home, retirement plan, and insurance wins the game!
As in real life, players must invest in education to start a career, save the down-payment and get a mortgage to buy a house, start early to save for retirement, get proper insurance for their health and property, and so on.
All along game play, players are confronted with breaking news from the worlds of politics, economics, business, the law, and technology. They must figure out what each news event means and are given a chance to adjust their portfolios before it actually happens! They then learn the actual market response and reap the rewards or pay the price for their decisions.
