Conquer Cashalot Game:
Conquer Cashalot is a single player educational game set in medieval times. This game is designed to teach high school students the importance of making sound financial decisions.
Players start their adventure as a ranger, make financial decisions throughout the game and advance to knight then wizard. Players must pass all three stages of the game and save enough money to travel the kingdom and retire. To facilitate the game and solidify learning, Money Mentor’s Youth Presenters will be going out to the Grade 10 classrooms to deliver the presentation. Additionally, we encourage high school students to play this game at their leisure time.
Playing Conquer Cashalot on a direct or Wi-Fi internet connection is advisable to reduce data consumption.
