Act Your Wage FAQ

What ages is the game for?

Act Your Wage! is designed for kids ages 10 to 110.

What is the goal of the game?

The goal of Act Your Wage! is to live within your means, pay off debt, and be the first one to scream, “I’m debt free!”

How many people can play the game?

Act Your Wage! can be played by two to four players.

Is there anything I can do to shorten game play?

During setup, have each player draw two or even one Debt card instead of three.

What does it mean to double my emergency fund?

Baby Step 1 of Dave’s program says to put $1,000 away in an emergency fund. Nevertheless, there are circumstances, such as a pregnancy or possible layoffs at your company, that suggest saving larger amounts.

What if I run out of money?

If you run out of money, you are out of the game. Please note, however, that in real life we have seen people in the worst of financial circumstances take stock of their situation, commit to Dave’s Baby Steps, get gazelle intense, start working their debt snowball, and come out on the other side screaming, “I’m debt free!” for real! Listen to the radio show every Friday and hear them do it. Their stories are amazing!

Why are there two spaces for groceries?

We designed each cycle around the board to resemble a month. And, since most of us buy groceries intermittently, we devoted two spaces to it.

Which of Dave’s principles are reflected in the game?

Act Your Wage! is built around Baby Step 2—getting out of debt by paying off everything but the mortgage. But there are other principles in play as well, such as habitually saving, avoiding credit, setting financial goals, budgeting, and, of course, acting your wage.

Why do I have to have my emergency fund and my expense envelopes fully funded before I can pay off any of my debts?

Because that’s what grandma would say.

How do I pay off debt if I can’t keep money in my envelopes or emergency fund?

You should call The Dave Ramsey Show at (888) 825 5225.

What if I deplete my emergency fund? Can I borrow from another player?

The Bible says that “the borrower is the slave of the lender” (Prov. 22:7 ESV). So, no, you may not borrow from another player.

What should I do if I draw a Give card?

No game can ever replicate the deep satisfaction that comes when you’ve lived like no one else and can give like no one else. Nevertheless, we tried to make the point as best we could by turning Give cards into opportunities for players to give or receive.

When I draw a Save card and it says I save an amount of money, where does that money come from?

In the case of Save cards, players receive the stated amount from the bank. For example, if you draw a card that reads, “You sell your collection of eighties-era baseball cards. Save $200.” You will receive $200 from the bank. Think of it this way: Amounts obtained from Save cards represent an additional source of income. Regular income is paid out by the bank, so, for purposes of game play, secondary income is as well.

Is it okay to make up house rules?

As long as Grandma would approve. We’d love to hear what you’ve come up with. So why not tell us about it in an email to actyourwage@daveramsey.com.

This game would be so much better if . . . I love this game because . . .

Why not finish your sentence in an email and send it to actyourwage@daveramsey.com?
