Road to Riches

Road To Riches has been developed in partnership between Eliora Educational Games and The Financial Times. FT.com is free for secondary schools worldwide. Teachers at UK schools can register for a free copy of Road to Riches.

Gameplay

Road To Riches is a board game for ages 15+. It can be played by up to 8 players. A typical game lasts 45 minutes.

You need to build a secure financial future by investing in education, a home, retirement plan, and insurance. You also need to accumulate savings and make shrewd investments.

All along game play, your financial savvy is tested through knowledge questions about basic financial principles, and how you respond to changing news. Be smart, think ahead, don’t put all your eggs in one basket (especially one with holes…). And beware: as in real life, unpredictable events – or tricky opponents – can upset the most well thought-out plans…
