           http://pbskids.org/cyberchase/quest/

  Cyberchase, the math-mystery cartoon on PBS Kids Go!, has
  just launched a new online game. Cyberchase: The Quest is an
  interactive Web game that lets kids create their own cyber
  characters, and go on action-packed quests throughout
  Cyberspace, all while developing money-management skills to
  help defeat the bad guys.

  The game is designed to help children develop financial
  literacy skills such as earning, saving and spending as part
  of the Cyberchase: Know Your Dough financial literacy
  campaign.
