Playing the Best Business and Money Games for Kids
As I was looking up money hacks and other ways to earn online, I came across an opportunity to try some business and money games, all of which left me feeling relaxed and mentally sharper.
It’s from MortgageCalculator.Org, a safe website that offers free mortgage and loan amortization calculations. I thought it was cool that they had a gaming section.
Well, the games are actually for children. They are fun, colorful, and the educational concepts are simplified. But kids at heart can play too. You can still benefit from them because the games can improve your judgment skills and boost your imagination.
Here are the best ones I’ve tried:
Wind & Solar
If you want something light, try Wind and Solar.
The goal is simple: to generate as much electricity within the given time. There are two things you have to do simultaneously to achieve this. (1) Keep the solar panel under the sun by dragging it as the weather changes. (2) Catch the air by moving the wind turbine in its direction (also by dragging it).

If you want to brush up on your basic arithmetic skills, I highly recommend Supermarket Numbers. What you need to do here is to click on the correct number blocks that, when totaled, would correspond to the number on the left (your goal).
Note that as you level up, the number blocks drop faster (this means you have to keep up and think of the equation quicker too).

Real Estate Tycoon
The last one on our list is my favorite. It's called Real Estate Tycoon (I played this before). The goal is to reach your target profit by buying and selling properties. It's a simple game, but it can do wonders for boosting your alertness because monitoring the prices drop and soar requires full attention.
You can choose from any of the three modes:
Career Mode- you start with a balance of $150, have a time limit of 5 minutes, and a mission to earn $1,000
Time Trial Mode- you start with a balance of $100, have a time limit of 10 minutes, and a mission to earn $20,000
Endless Mode- this one's pretty self-explanatory, play as long as you like (this game can be addictive)
