I didn't like this game. The instructions said: "Your job will be to run a Dairy Queen and keep customers happy by filling their orders. Earn at least $50 to complete your task. To play, click on the ingredients to make the ice cream dessert pictured. Drag the order to the customer who requested it before time runs out. Click on the money to collect it. To restart the order, drag the ice cream to the trash." It required no skills other than to point and click quickly; no problem solving and definitely no strategy.
Also noteworthy was the banner across the top of the game page that read for Male Gamers Only Warning Adult Content. Not the kind of links we want readily available to our students in class.

This game is useless. I searched for business management games and this is one that popped up.This shows you that you don't always get what you searched for on the internet. -Deese2017 3/9/14
