The Banking Game | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The Banking Game

Pretend that you are ten again. You and your little playmates are out on the playground or roaming the neighborhood after school and you decide to play a game. It's called "Banking".

So you choose one of your friends to be "The Banker" and you all agree that he can cut up pieces of construction paper and stamp them with his "Special Stamp" and put spots on the pieces of paper --- 1 Spot, 5 Spots, 10 Spots, 20 Spots, and so on.... and from then on, you will all have to use this "Money" and you will have to give pieces of this Money valued at "20 Spots" to another playmate playing the role of "The Government" if you want to access the playground equipment in the school yard.

If you don't have enough of The Banker's Money to give to your pal playing The Government, you can't swing on the swings or play on the monkey bars or slide down the slide anymore, because you are "too poor".
