Comments & reviews
Quality Mark assessors comments: 

This game will give children the basic skills and understanding to be able to manage their own bank accounts. It has good potential for enjoyment and interest. The game can be repeated several times emphasising different aspects of the processes involved. The game can be used as a one off or it could form a sound motivator for a more prolonged topic.
