The idea of the game.
The idea of the game is to earn as much virtual money as you can. You have a virtual balance of £100,000 to invest in a collection of FTSE100 companies. Remember - the money isn't real, it's just a game!
Your Portfolio is made up from 5 different sector groups. In each group, you have the virtual cash of £20,000 to invest.
You can change the company within any of the 5 groups, but you can only do this once per day. You can change it at any time in the day, or leave it until another day if you prefer
You can only have shares in 1 company from each group, so if you want to change one of the companies, the stock you hold is sold at the current price, and then whole shares are purchased in the new company. You can only have whole shares in a company, so any cash left over after the purchase of the new shares is lost. Think of it as a broker's fee!!
No prizes are given, just the honour and the admiration of being in the top 5 competitors.
