Awesome game! Fun combination of different activities during which you can earn money. The earnings are then used to purchase items for your home. By doing so, the game allows you to reflect with young people about budgeting, needs and wants and which items are important to them to create a cosy home. Feel free to adapt the activities on the disk to your local context.
