Rescue The Market

December 30, 2008 -- From Dan, a reader from Toronto, Ontario, who is affiliated with the site.

Rescue The Market is a trivia game where correct or incorrect answers influence a virtual stock market. When users answer questions correctly the market goes up, but if you answer incorrectly it will go down. The stats are updated in real time and the virtual markets performance is then compared to the Dow Jones, thus making the game more fun and interesting to play. It is available for free and suitable for kids 9 or up. The trivia questions are strictly business related and teach as you play along. Try it out and test your market knowledge!
