Learning how to be more financially aware.
Don’t Be Jack™ brings to life real financial principles by stressing the importance of spending less than you earn, having a written budget, having an emergency fund, saving for the future, understanding insurance, understanding your benefits, and being aware of fees.

  • Knowledge: Financial seminars, terms, resources, benefits.
  • Saving: Retirement, emergency funds, kids’ college, large expenses.
  • Planning: Budgeting, proper insurance coverage, preparing for large purchases.
  • Spending: Fees, credit cards, flex spending accounts.

The game takes 90 minutes to play and accommodates
