To Make a Dollar

A game of buying and selling fruit to make a profit
To Make a Dollar is an economic game that is meant to teach kids about managing their money, making a profit, and the concept of supply and demand. The player is tasked with buying fruit when the price is low and selling when the price is high. Each fruit only has a shelf life of 7 days before it expires so they must decide if they are willing to risk waiting for the perfect selling price or if they need to settle for a smaller profit margin. The player with the most money at the end of the game is the winner.
