The only game that kids need is Overwatch! You can even bet on it and If you want to know how then just read More.... Believe me, your family will only benefit from you doing it. I only want to help you, don't be afraid.

Learning the meaning and value of economies is curcial nowadays. Especially since most adults can't manage it well.

Very interesting. It's always nice to teach kids the value of money. This tool could do a great job at it. I recently went to a theme park for kids that made them "work" for tokens that they could later use in rides etc. My nieces really enjoyed it.

@anandvy...What do you think about an online entity like EBN, having a section on the supply chain where kids of all ages could blog and create a discussion about supply chain concerns impacting their lives.

In this way, the game becomes a learning tool instead of just saying to a child, "Don't smoke cigarettes because they are bad for you."

@Douglas, I believe what you have suggested is very innovative and effective teaching tool. I am sure such innovative methods will help kids understand the different aspects about supply chain which will help them make right decision in their life. I really hope schools and colleges will build similar methods to teach all the kids about supply chain.

@Flyingscot...the game is just an idea that I am not marketing at present. I just wanted to make a point that kids need to understand as early as possible that their present choices will impact their futures in a myriad of ways. If they stop eating cereals with chemicals, the manufacturers will be forced to change their ingredients to healthier choices. As long as kids drink cokes with added phosphoric acid and mostly artificially flavors, then Coca Cola will still produce sugary, diabetic inducing flavors. We have a huge problem with childhood obesity and early child diabetics, but I do not expect Coke to step up and say that they will cease production of these drinks any more than the cigarette companies will change their deleterious and malicious practices. Parents and Grandparents need to give priority to this kind of education as much as they are giving to the 3 R's. The game grows with the child's understanding. And as the child grows, that understanding can become foundational to personal and corporate choices that will determine if this world will one day be manufacturing all of its food or will the practices change so that you will never have to say to your children, "once there were real strawberries"

Yes if the kids today are exposed to supply chain they will be more concerned individual when they grow up. Also they can be told about what happens when we consume them, like the pcakaging is it recyclable or not.

I am glad to see you are thinking of the future needs of supply chain management.  If your Supplychainopoly game becomes a big hit then we will have great well educated leaders for the future.

@SP... My granddaughter is always being given little gifts here and there and I hope to instill a sense of cost in terms of labor, the environment, and social implications. I know that teachers traditionally teach the three R's, reading, writing, and arithmetic, and I had a hard time with math because I couldn't see any connection to my real world. Sure, if I had three apples and I gave you one, I would have two left. That made sense, but I did not understand the value of things. I was not told that my tennis shoes were made by kids my age who did not get to go to bed or eat dinner without first making their daily quota. Or that my baseball cards were products of trees and how my marbles were made. Where graphite in my pencil was mined and processed. I am making sure that my granddaughter, who is becoming a prodigious consumer, has a sense of where her toys come from and the real cost associated thereby. It is a game where learning can become very fun and immediate, because it teaches about the world in its many forms of business, practices, and people.
