Prove You're Financially Literate And Win At Online Soccer!

We’re not sure what “soccer” is—it looks like it might be some sort of real-world Quidditch without the brooms—but Visa and a bunch of soccer players have released a fancy-schmancy (for a website, at least) online version that tests your financial literacy. You can try it out at instead of working this morning.

We started the game dreading the inevitable edu-boringness that these sorts of things always deliver, but actually it’s not that bad. At crucial points in the match, you have to answer a question to determine what happens next. Answer correctly, and your team will successfully make the kick/tackle/snitch-grab (I really don’t know soccer). Prove you’re a financial idiot and your team will lose. To make it more interesting, the really valuable shots can only be completed if you answer harder questions.
