The time will come when you want to buy something to flip. How will you deal with seeing your cash go down? Or will you account for it some other way?
I’ve been thinking about it a lot and I’m not quite sure how to handle it. I have thought about only leveling up one level each time we get a windfall and opening a checking account with the rest. I don’t want to deal with the hassle and fees of another account. On the other hand, I’ll need a way to track buying, repaying that account, and putting some profit into the Money Game.
My son-in-law and I talked about it and he said no business goes straight up in profit. There is always some ebb and flow. When you play a game, your score goes up but you can lose life, etc. when you get hit by the bad guys. Or you start running out of time or space (think Tetris where the puzzle starts building to the top and you’re about to get killed!)
Perhaps the best analogy is Monopoly where you hold cash and titles (or perhaps the dollar amount of inventory).

Have fun and level up!
