one of my colleagues shared this stock market simulation with me. A couple of days ago, one of my colleagues 

was looking for my set of the simulation’s cards and I worried that the directions were lost.

Because the simulation is timeless and technology helped me find the details again. (I also downloaded the pdf for safe keeping!) 

I hope history/econ students you know can enjoy the simulation too.
