About the Game


Bring the world into your classroom with the ASX Sharemarket Game

While you teach your students about the Sharemarket, they can put into practice what they are learning. Students receive a virtual $50,000 that they can invest over a 10 week period, in 200 companies listed on the ASX. The prices students buy and sell at are the same prices as they would get in the live market so this is as close to real life share trading as you can get.


 As a result of playing the Game your students will:

  • Develop their knowledge of the sharemarket
  • Learn how to research companies 
  • Discover the importance of wise investment decisions 
  • Gain a greater knowledge of economic and world events
  • Begin to learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future
  • The Game can be part of a school subject or an extra-curricular activity offered to students
  • It is free to play and as a bonus students can win great cash prizes

How the Game works

  • If you are a teacher, you need to register for the Game and then sign your students up to play the Game.
  • If you are a student, you need to ask a teacher to sign you up. 
  • Students compete either individually or in a group of 2 to 4 students  
  • Students do research and decide which companies they will invest in
  • They buy and sell shares 'online' in any of the nominated ASX listed companies
  • Orders to buy or sell shares can be placed at any time. Orders will be executed when ASX TradeMatch® is open (10 am to 4.10 pm)
  • Orders will be processed as they match with what is in the live market via TradeMatch
  • Students can monitor their shares via their Game portfolio
