Be the first player to pay off 20 Manatee Coins worth of Student Debt.

Each round has two phases:

Place your manatee token on any of the four cards on the left OR any of the four fixed spaces on the right. You can purchase a business venture or gain another benefit. Business Ventures can pay off by giving you more coins later in the game. Having the toast token is helpful because it gives you first dibs on what you want.

Risks and challenges

Jason and Zach plan to ship all of this stuff personally. Things can get complicated when outside companies are brought in. Jason has shipped 6 different crowd funding campaigns himself, he will bring his experience and enthusiasm to making sure it is a smooth shipping process. Any potential problems will be dealt with openly in the updates. Plus Zach lives in Florida and Jason has never been there, good excuse to escape the harsh Toronto weather.
