BANK ON IT™: STATE SOCIETY RESOURCES

Background

The concept for the game was designed by high school students who won AICPA’s Project Innovation Competition . Their submission focused on creating an accounting version of a traditional board game. The game features over 1,300 questions and was based on 14 high school accounting textbooks. The questions have been reviewed by a team of CPAs and the game provides incorrect-answer explanations and rationale to increase student’s understanding of the accounting profession. In addition, the game weaves in real-life professional scenarios and reinforces principles already being taught in their classroom.

Students can play at one of two levels and can focus on one of three sectors, business and industry, public accounting or non-profit accounting. The game is won by reaching the winning bank balance set prior to starting. Players earn money by answering questions correctly and landing on other strategic spaces as they move around the board.
