A STUDY GUIDE

Grades 7-12

Karma Tycoon is a new kind of video game.
This free on-line game
has cool, splashy graphics and is fun to play, but instead of trying to make a million dollars, users are making the world a better place by running nonprofit organizations (homeless shelters, animal shelters, youth centers, senior centers, and performing arts centers) indifferent cities across the United States.

The goal of the game is to serve as many people (or animals) as possible, which will maximize karma, so players can move on to
the next city and make a difference there, too.

Karma Tycoon is an engaging, competitive, and nonviolent real-time strategy game that is both educational and entertaining.
What are you waiting for? Check it out below!

Karma Tycoon rocks the gaming world by offering you a thrilling ride through the world of social entrepreneurship as you earn Karma in virtual communities across the US.
