What is the Payoff game?

The Payoff game is an immersive experiential game for teens to learn about financial basics easily. The game is played in a web app that simulates a mobile phone where players can chat with characters, check their bank, open fake websites, check their emails, and more.

How to play the game

Students have access to a banking app with a checking and savings account where they can transfer money from one account to another.

  • Ages 14 years old and up
  • In The Payoff game, play the role of Alex or Jess, two up-and-coming video bloggers
  • Prepare for a life-changing video competition while managing your finances and handling unexpected events
  • In the immersive game, help Alex and Jess make smart financial decisions within the tight three-day deadline

Most choices impact costs, some of them impact their future savings, and others have consequences later in the game. Your scores go up when you save money and make sound financial decisions. It goes down when you spend money or make poor decisions.

The main goal is to complete the video challenge while maintaining a high score and preparing for a rainy day by saving what they can in case of the unexpected.

Teach students about money

In the classroom, teachers invite students to join the experience. When everyone is ready, the teacher starts the game, allowing students to play. There is an option to log in as a teacher, student, or solo player.

Make it a part of your classroom curriculum with three lesson plans and student activities prior to teens playing The Payoff. Each lesson plan is structured as a comprehensive teaching tool for easy integration into your own classroom curriculum.
