La Cité Argentée Silver City is a Canadian game for children aged between 8 and 12 years in which we learn to save money.

Once the character is created, a goal set including:
Party at the zoo ($ 200 saving)
Pet dog ($ 300)
Air travel ($ 400)
Bowling party ($ 200)
Trip to the museum ($ 200)
Ski trip ($ 400)

The target, a budget of $ 40 is allocated to us. We finally arrive in Silver City. Then simply move the mouse cursor on the map and explore the city.
