The purpose of the game is to accumulate Happy Points (HaPs). Every player needs at least one Health Point (HeP) to survive. The player who reaches the finish first receives three extra happy points and ends the game. The player with the highest number of happy points wins! Dr Irina Burlacu of Researchista created the game.
How to play the Mobility Era Game
The game has four sides (blue, red, green and yellow), representing the four cardinal points North, East, South, and West.
They correspond to four phases in life:
- Old age
Every square on the board shows the age of the player in the game. The game starts at age 11 and ends at age 99. As you move across the board, you work in different countries and earn money called European Currency Units (ECUs). As in life, as you age in the game, you will have to pay taxes on your earned income. The Mobility Era Game is also equipped with a map. The game can be played with up to five players. The game takes between 60-90 minutes to complete. Players learn valuable information on the European Union’s four freedoms, including each member state’s income taxation levels.

Improving financial literacy by using our research based board game and app
The Mobility Era game teaches young children and adults alike about life in the European Union and how moving from one country to another within the European Space can affect your taxes, but also can contribute to your health and happiness. I had a lot of fun playing this game, which is highly relevant in my opinion in today’s world.
This great game can turn out very competitive, but also very educational and informative. It gives you a great lesson in life: what matters most is happiness and health. I strongly encourage all EU citizens to try it out!
Nice board game. It actually provides additional knowledge to an individual about the ever-prevailing tariff system of any society. Not only an entertainment one but imparting some valuable knowledge.
