My final project, Leverage, aims to demonstrate the potential of subliminal education in games as a tool for tackling financial literacy in an ambitious scope. It will also challenge the widespread lack of financial education.

Leverage is an engaging board game based on a volatile stock market scenario. Players must buy stocks at a low price and sell them when the market is high. Stock values are influenced by playing or withholding news cards which can either boost their stock value or harm their opponent’s stocks. The game consists of players reading news cards and learning to understand how real-life events impact stock values.
