Help students see the relevance of math skills. Each player begins with a checking account balance of $100. In turn, each player sees how many spaces to move and picks up an “unexpected event” card. According to the card’s instructions, the player either adds or subtracts an amount from their account (e.g. receiving a birthday gift or taking the cat to the vet). The first player to reach the end receives a bonus amount. Players then add up how much money they have in their accounts, and the one with the most money wins. Game board comes with 50 unexpected events cards, 20 sheets of a check register (reproducible), and 6 game pieces. For 2-6 players.
