Test Your Budgeting Skills with This Highly Educational Finance Game

Seeking to increase the financial I.Q. of today's app users and gamers for teenagers and older. Fortune and Venture LLC introduces the FREE financial board game CashCrunch 101. Derived from the financial term "cash crunch" which means the failure of any enterprise to continue functioning due to insufficient money the game tasks players to avoid just that. Players take on the role of a college student working at a restaurant called Cash Crunch Cafe as he attempts to raise his savings and overall net worth.

Players start with a checking account containing 1000 as well as 3000 in savings. Net worth which the player has to try to raise is determined by the sum of the two.

Real-world financial factors such as income and expense values daily activity options and choices are needed to be made whilst multiple choice questions test your knowledge.

Objectives and achievements are given as the player gets a good hold of his finances which becomes more difficult as ea one is achieved.

The Ask Brian feature offers an in-depth tutorial on the mechanics of the game as well as a glossary of well—defined financial terms for self study.

Much of the aspects of CashCrunch are centered on the educational and decision-making features that would be encountered in real life. Money management mistakes should be made and learned from in the CashCrunch 101 "virtual world" and not in the potentially costly and less forgiving real world.

For more information please visit www.cashcrunchgames.com for links to the various App stores or to play CashCrunch 101 on the website and use the learning resources based around the game.
