They are a bunch of funky people keen on making a difference in people’s life. They believe that in order to excel in the game of life, a player must be a master of game theory and human behavior, which can only be learnt through actual interaction with another human being. They crack our brains to blend psychology, financial principles, humor and a dose of fun to create games that are simple to learn, but difficult to master. They want to inspire and attract those who shun the game of finance, to enjoy the games that they create and master the basic money rules, so that they can engage financial professionals in a more meaningful and profitable manner. They aim to empower and equip educators and institutions, to improve their level of engagement and interaction with their students and customers.
