Are you tired of long lectures delivered with PowerPoint presentations? Do you wish there was training you could do on your own time, on your mobile device, when you have a minute or two at the airport or waiting in line to place a food order? Do you wish trainings were fun, engaging and taught you something valuable that you can use immediately when you finished?

Play Misadventures in Money Management (MiMM), a cutting edge, graphic novel meets choose your own adventure virtual learning experience that trains future and current servicemembers how to navigate financial landmines in a fun and interactive way. The program is available for use by all U.S. Armed Forces. 

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Office of Servicemember Affairs created a fun, gamified learning program that tackles tough financial topics such as consumer financial decision-making, choosing a financial institution, understanding protections under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), avoiding impulse purchases, and understanding how debt can impact a military career. 

The CFPB asked young servicemembers and military leadership what they wanted in a training about the tough topic of personal finances. They told us they wanted it to be fun, something they could start but come back to when they have a few minutes. They also wanted to save the world from outer space alien invaders, fight zombies along the way, and see the consequences of their actions if they made less than optimal financial choices. 

MiMM does all of that. By incorporating gamification throughout the program, servicemembers can have fun as they save the world from financial chaos. Try it today! Go to MiMM.GOV and press Play to get started with your adventure.  No need to sign in or provide any personal information, just start playing right now.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Servicemember Affairs has useful tools and resources for servicemembers, veterans, and military families.
