Review of the site: Spent = http://www.spific.com/
“Spent was launched in February 2011 as a collaboration between McKinney and Urban Ministries of Durham. earn more about UMD's mission at umdurham.org”
My take: This online game is designed to teach players about the challenges of living on minimum wage. Players select a job and make choices trying to survive the month without going into debt. The player's account balance is adjusted after each choice. In addition to the change in the player's balance sheet, each choice is followed by an explanation of consequence of the choice made. I recommend this game for late middle school and high school students.
