Interactive Life games Flash
From IRAs to social security to emergency funds, it can be pretty difficult to figure out what you (or your kids) should be doing with your money at each stage of life. BillShrink decided to help you out with these decisions by creating The Financial Game of Life (you remember, that awesome board game where you got to pick your house and career from a deck of cards?) Spin the wheel to move onto the different life stages and see how much your savings can grow but watch out for unexpected life events!

The game, in non-fun and non-interactive text:
Financial Stage 1 (10-16 years old)
It’s crucial to encourage your children to start saving at an early age. Whether it’s birthday money, weekly allowance or a gift from the tooth fairy; make sure your children are putting away a percentage of that into a piggy bank or, even better, a savings account that will earn interest.
Financial Stage 2 (16-18 years old)
With 16 comes many newfound freedoms and opportunities. You’re now able to get a job, which will give you some extra cash (without going to Mom and Dad) and will look great on a college resume. Of course, you’re also able to start driving, which means you’ll need to save some of that money for gas.
Remember to put some of your paycheck into savings. You can continue to contribute to the savings account that was opened for you in Stage 1, but a CD will yield higher interest rates. You can also open a Roth IRA with your parents and start saving for the unthinkable – retirement. With compound interest, you can put in a thousand dollars and that will turn into hundreds of thousands when it’s time to retire, meaning you won’t need to save as much in the future.
Finally, it’s time to think about something a little more imminent, going to college. With student loans becoming the number one debt in America, you want to do everything you can to avoid them. Luckily, there are millions of dollars out there to help you pay for school so start applying for as many grants and scholarships as you can during your senior year.
Financial Stage 3 (18-22 years old)
If you are responsible about spending and paying bills, you may want to get a joint credit card with your parents. This will help to build your credit score, which will come in handy when you’re looking to buy or rent a house or purchase a car. Be careful though, a credit card is not free money. Don’t spend more than you have and make sure you’re only buying what you truly need.
If you have a part-time job during college, make sure you are automatically putting a percentage of your paycheck into savings – even if it’s only an extra $50. Small contributions are better than nothing and you’ll just need to eat in a couple of times.

Hi Monahlissaby blueworm
I'm open to anything Flash related, even pure coding (ActionScripting). However, I've spent the last two years working on small educational games and improvements on my web page.
Perhaps web shorts, interactive tutorials, something in eLearning, eye candy. Whatever, my current skills could get me at this time really.
Hope that isn't too vague...
