This is a game I have created to complement my Economics for Kids unit.

The object of the game is to get a home, clothing, and food (meat/fish/eggs, bread, AND vegetables). You may barter goods or combine cards to make what you need. For example:
wheat + fire = bread, sheep + shears = clothing, sheep + fire = meat
bricks/sticks + tools = house, seeds + water = vegetables,
cow/pig/chicken + fire = meat

If you have chickens, you can use them as laying hens, and use the eggs instead of meat. If you have a cow, you can use them to get milk (for advanced game below). You may work in teams (recommended for large groups) or individually (for up to 6 players, or you will need to print out more than one set of the cards).

Several variations of play are included. Also included are specific task cards to make the game even more challenging. Printable money ($20 and $100 bills) are included if you would like to add monetary negotiations.
