You’ll all enjoy Dave Ramsey’s popular game called Act Your Wage. Dave Ramsey, the money management guru, has produced an entertaining and educational game for the entire family. Ask Granny’s online guide for grandparents agrees children as young as six or seven can play, and teens enjoy the quest to get out of debt and stay that way as much as the adults.

In addition to being a game of chance, players will learn the benefits of having and sticking to a financial plan. They’ll pick up financial vocabulary and the meaning of  concepts such as taxes, taking out a loan, interest and much more. You’ll hear your kids saying things like, “Can I afford it?” and “Do I really need it?”

The family will enjoy the competition of the game while learning about spending and saving habits. Many say it’s a game similar to Monopoly with the additional benefit of teaching crucial money-managing habits.
