H&R Budget Challenge

I start my economics and personal finance class a week from Monday and so I just found this H&R Block Budget Challenge.  I wish I had had it in the spring as I had my AP Economics students do their own budget challenge, but on a spreadsheet.   But this game allows teachers to set up a course and have their students compete against one another by paying bills, investing, setting up retirement accounts, taking quizzes, etc.  Thus your students will be both challenged and at the same time feel as if they are playing a fun game.

As a teacher you set up an account and are given a code so that students do not need to set up their own account.
