From the Rules Booklet - In this game you will play a fictional role - either as an adult individual or a married couple. You will make investment decisions for your character over an imaginary 25-year period of his or her life or lives. You will be faced with a wide range of investment options - some safe but sure, others risky but potentially very rewarding. Whatever investments you choose will be affected, favorably or unfavorably, by the economic climate - which rarely remains stable for very long. The object of the game is to provide your character with as much financial security as possible. To be successful, you'll need a combination of skill and luck, as you try to anticipate changing economic times while also taking into account your character's special strengths and weaknesses.
