Wongamania Family Day @ Toa Payoh Library
Partnering with Singapore's National Library Board, we held a family friendly Wongamania: Banana Economy event to help the heartlanders to have fun while picking up some basic personal finance and investment knowledge.
Held during the June holidays, the 2-hour session saw heartlanders of all walks of life entering the Universe of Wongamania.
As a light-medium board game, the Wongamania Banana Economy was easily picked up by the 40 participants who joined us in the event.
From enthusiatic school children to curious retirees, players navigated the economic ups and downs with the goal of achieving 3 trust funds during a typical 30-45 minute game play.
There was never a dull moment as the players helped themselves to multiple rounds of Wongamania Banana Economy in exploration of the best card combinations to maximise their profits and wrecking damage to their opponents.
The game play concluded with a short debrief conducted by our game designer, Xeo Lye, where participants were introduced to the various financial concepts behind the design of the game.
Our team spent a fun-filled afternoon interacting with the heartlanders of Toa Payoh, and would look forward to organising more sessions in future to engage the public in financial literacy.
