I made this game while my students worked on their APCSP create task. You are a loan shark trying to get to $100. You can loan money to people and use goons to collect on debts. The people to whom you loan have varying levels of interest and credit. See how fast you can reach $100 bucks!

It's fantastic! Economic simulation is more than simply a game. Such games typically depict real-world market procedures, educate survival in the stone jungle, and promote corporate development. These games are played by all Mortgage Advice Birmingham staff. Even the competitors act almost identically to how they do in real life. In pure simulation games, you usually don't have to develop your business from the ground up; instead, the player is given a ready-made business that he must either not wreck or, at the very least, lead to spectacular success and place his name on the Forbes list.

Thanks for your job. I really love it. I am a developer from this website https://paydaysay.com/) and sometimes it is hard to create something that will be used by a million of people all around the world and they will appreciate it, I spend a lot of time just to be able to create a calculator that won’t drop when a lot of people are doing the same activity and you created a simulator. You are a really good creator!

It's an engaging game, lol. I don't think learning from books is a waste of time @MagnoliaYY. The books are a credible source and always have been. Anyway, this game looks like a suitable method of training the brain. I'm a student in Finland, and I bumped into a loan company. You can see here https://www.edullinenlaina.com/40000e-laina/ - their website. I wanted to take a consumer loan(10 grand), and because of my lack of history, they evaluated my annual interest by about 12%. I had to do some maths and see if I could cope with it. All I want to say is that such games can develop your ability to understand loans better. It's a great job!

Very ingenious from you. This is how the students should study nowadays, not only theory. Learning all the material from the books is also a waste of time. They should only focus on what is really important and apply that knowledge in real life, otherwise our brains are programmed to get rid of the information which we don't use. I am glad that I had the possibility to start my own business while I was student yet, with the help of https://www.uplyftcapital.com/marketplace which gave me a loan and I could turn my ideas into reality.
