Cafe Boss needs you to operate the cafe so that it can earn a profit. Learn the forms of payments and cash in on your earnings to buy new equipment for the shop.
Café Boss is a game based on financial literacy where the player must earn points through café item sales to gain money and equipment. The game uses math and reading comprehension to develop financial literacy skills. The touch mechanic of the game engages children and teenagers in a hands-on learning process, implementing kinesthetic learning.
The game incorporates math comprehension attuned to the particular grade level, based upon excerpts from grade-appropriate SOL math materials and Economic Personal Finance objectives.
