Mobility Era Board Game


The Mobility Era Game is an educational board game and app that will improve your financial literacy by the usage of official statistics and fun facts about life. It is inspired from a PhD thesis, and it combines elements of geography, math, public finance, entrepreneurship and civic education. Mobility Era Game is a holistic game on life and income trajectory one can experience from age 14+.


The Mobility Era Game is a board game that teaches financial literacy in a fun and engaging way.

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:

  1. Youth
  2. Midlife
  3. Maturity
  4. 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.

“I had a lot of fun playing”

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.

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.
