Want to see how your lifestyle choices will affect your financial future? The MONEYTOPIA game provides a good simulation of how financial decisions you will make over the course of your lifetime will affect your ability to live your future dreams.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation developed the MONEYTOPIA game to teach basic money management to military personnel and other young adults - though it is appropriate for all ages.

Playing the game for a simulated lifetime can take the better part of an afternoon or evening. (But it might prevent you from making huge real world mistakes.)

HINT: It is important to live within your means and to invest for your future.

The website has numerous tutorials to teach you aspects of money management and personal investments. The tutorials are accessible either within the game (which will earn you additional money in the game) or separately on the website.

The game and tutorials are available at
