Balancing Act is a card matching game for 2 players that aims to inform players about basic money management principles. The purpose of the game is to educate players on different money management concepts in a fun and engaging manner. This paper will discuss the story of Balancing Act, the development of the game, and how the design of the game seeks to inform the player of its purpose. It will also include a post mortem that details the challenges of developing both a board and card version of the game, the overall outcomes of the project, and future directions for the game.
