The world in general obsesses with academic intelligence, and in recent times, emotional intelligence. While both are important components to success, there is another important ingredient: financial intelligence. Unfortunately this is seldom, if ever, taught in the education system or in working life – no, accounting, banking and financial knowledge do not necessarily translate to financial intelligence!

The Rut to Riches board game was created to teach financial intelligence by simulating real-life scenarios. Players get to make various financial decisions and experience the outcomes of those decisions. As they learn and adapt their strategies, they will discover why the rich get richer, the poor stay poor.
