World of Cents is a fun and engaging, kid-friendly game for ages 5 and up designed to teach kids currency recognition and coin values. Brought to you by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), this educational game focuses on basic math skills and the concepts of earning, saving and spending money.

The Game
Choose a character to participate in a vibrant world full of whimsical playhouses. Then, select one of three levels to challenge your math and matching skills. Switch between your playhouses and coin matching game to earn money, then decide how to spend it building your own magical world. See how much money is earned and how much is being spent by watching your bank account go up and down as you make decisions to buy, sell, or upgrade your playhouses. Each playhouse costs money, and needs to be maintained. The game creates an easy-to-understand money-balancing simulation that teaches kids the value of money by:

• Learning coin values and applying this knowledge through simple and complex math;
• Showing how to spend and save money wisely;
• Demonstrating how small, incremental savings add up to more money; and
• Teaching the necessity of earning and saving money to maintain your world.

Augmented Reality - Using the camera on your mobile device and a downloadable image, bring your world to life with the option to view your world in 4D!
