MDI is a card game that has players take turns being a customer while the other players try to convince them to purchase their products accumulating market share in the process.
There are two ways to win by either having the most market share at the end of the game (combined money and resources) or coming up with the best product idea in the game.
ReBuildUp will be debuting a new card game for 2-8 players (great for families) that teaches about salesmanship, cost of goods sold, and gross margins in a fun way. It works great as a pre-Economy, Jr. game and with a few extra card decks, you can have a tournament with up to 32 players at a time.
Teens in Greensboro are invited to come out and play on Tuesdays January 13th through 27th at Greensboro Library’s Glenwood, McGirt-Horton, and Hemphill branches. Visit our Events page for specific dates and times.

We are excited to announce the follow up to our successful Economic Literacy Summer Series at Greensboro Public Library with the Teen Entrepreneur Fall Series sponsored by Summit Credit Union.
Here are the events dates:
Tuesday, Nov. 18th[Postponed to February 2015]
PUBLIC (FREE) AUDIENCE EVENT
Downtown Greensboro, NC
(Players Chosen from Participants of Teen Entrepreneur Events)
This series is different in two big ways:
1) Each Teen Entrepreneur event consists of our Pitch Drill and Cashless Incubator games held back to back per event to help players learn in a fun environment the basics of developing a business plan, presenting it, developing product ideas, market testing those ideas, and how to trade their skills for resources with little or no money. The Cashless Incubator game will be using headlines from the News & Record to come up with product ideas.
2) After completing a Teen Entrepreneur event, players have the opportunity to submit their own teen business idea to compete with seven others at our November 18th PitchPocalypse contest with $300 going to the winning startup along with great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners. Details provided on the entry form available to players of our Teen Entrepreneur Events.
The PitchPocalypse will have judges from the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, Summit Credit Union, and UNCG’s North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center for the November 18th event at the Greensboro Public Library Central Branch. Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur Group, is helping organize each of these events.
