Stock Investing Games

Introduction...

 

* Royce's Notes about fun Stock Market simulations for all ages. My goal is to list all popular educational stock simulations, and some rough context about what they are good for. Most are bland boring charts, but some have fun 3D graphics and are an engaging videogame. I'd love to know about any super-fun 3D videogames. This is a ROUGH list to give ideas, not a review. It's not advice. These are grouped by education and not by fun, but I'll note some that felt fun. I've not used many of these, I'm taking continual notes on them.

* Context I hope to cover is how educational a stock game is, what the pros and cons are, how FUN it is for kids, if it's free, where to access it, and usage tips.

* Another goal is to list an abundance of websites who review Stock Market Simulations.
