Gold Rush is an interactive game for 1-4 players. You select a player (as seen in picture) and lead them through their personal journey during the Gold Rush.

A very good resource to use while teaching about civics and citizenship, as it gives students a choice they must make; perhaps gaining wealth versus ignoring their responsibilities as a citizen.
