    9. 9. The Story of the Traveling Georgia Artist Chris is a young but very talented artist. Chris is 18 years old and lives ina very small Georgia town. Chris loves Georgia, but has never traveledmore than 50 miles away from home. Although the family admires Chris’screative work, they really don’t understand it. Chris wants to go to collegeand become a great artist, but Chris’s family is very poor. No one in Chris’sfamily has ever gone to college. Instead, everyone in the family went towork in the family business right after high school. Although Chris hasearned the HOPE scholarship, this only pays for tuition and Chris’s familyhas no money for room and board. Chris’s family is supportive of Chrisgoing to college if Chris can find the money. Chris decides to borrow a friend’s old van and travel all through the Stateof Georgia selling the works of art Chris has made. If Chris can earnenough money, Chris will attend the University of Georgia in the Fallsemester. But, if unsuccessful, Chris will have to return home to help out inthe family business. This is Chris’s big chance to see Georgia, earn a reputation as a realartist, and get the opportunity to go to College. Home Page

    11. 11. Game Directions• The goal of the game is to make as much money as you can for college selling your art as you travel the State of Georgia.• You start off with $500 and must earn enough money to pay all of your bills along the way. Keep your bank account up-to-date along the way.• Each player puts a game piece of their choice (fun graphics are provided on a separate slide, but a button, paper clip, etc. will also do just fine) anywhere in the State at the start of the game. Each player takes turns rolling the die, moving that many spaces. If you travel on the Interstates, you can move between blue dots or cities in one step. You have to move that many spaces and you cannot move to the same square twice during the same roll of the die.• If you land on a Quiz square and answer the question correctly, you earn double of your last sale, up to $300.• If you land on another player, that player must pay you $100 for an “art lesson”.• If your account drops below $0, you must drop out of the game.• You select a “Sell Art” card when you reach one of the Georgia cities (red squares). You cannot select a card if you visit the same city twice in a row.• At the end of every turn you have to select a “Pay Expenses” card.• You win if you are the first person whose checking account reaches $2000, or if you are the last player remaining in the game, or the one with the most money when the teacher says that time is up.
