Best New Game of the Year

The New Zealand Investment Game has been award Best New Game of the Year by the NZ Games Assn (link >>>). The Judging panel included students and teachers from a cross-section of New Zealand schools and regions. It also included two celebrity judges, Jim Mora and Judith Dobson (both avid family game players), plus highly respected educational and child psychologist Lynne Beresford. Frank Newman said he was absolutely delighted to win the award. "It's a credit to the team that worked on the project for two years to bring it to market, particularly to Kim Shepherd our IT specialist and Aaron Moore from Fix Creative who worked on the design features." - 5 November 2009

Review by Alistair Helm, realestate.co.nz

"As close to real investing as you can possibly get... far more challenging and engaging than Monopoly...more of an education that a pure game, however it does not lack that aggressive and at times manic pace of ambition which pervades any good team game." Read full review >>>

The game combines the traditional board game approach with the sophistication of a patented software package. No two games are the same and all of the paperwork is done for you, which gives you more time to get on with investing.

urs you will learn a lifetime of investment experience, and it's crammed full of educational tips - you can even ask for advice from Frank!
