#899. Play the lemonade game

The Joy of Lemonade

Ah, the lemonade game. I remember it from sixth grade when we would beg Mrs. Collins to take us to the computer lab to play it (that and the Oregon Trail). It's a simple game of budgeting and projecting the weather. You see, you must buy lemons, sugar, cups and ice. Then you check the weather to guess how many people on the street are going to be interested in buying from you. After that it is a simple matter of deciding your recipe and setting your price. After that, it is a glorious waiting game. You watch with great interest as customers walk by and decide whether to purchase your lemonade. It may sound boring, but it is one of those things that is terribly addictive. It's a perfect way to waste 30 minutes. I, personally, like to experiment with the recipe to see if you can save money by selling an inferior product. It really all depends on the weather. Fun! Try it here: and thank me later.
