    Like Gon, I also failed “miserably” to strive as a cotton millionaire. I ended up in debtors’ prison and my results said that I “[had] had major problems since investing in Cumbria”! Nonetheless it was still a lot of fun!

  2. Catu Grosso says:

    My result was sad, I made lots of mistakes mostly by choosing my location. I went bankrupt and now im in prison of debtors

  3. Delfina nicora says:

    My result after playing this game was that i went to jail and i satyed without money this was because i chose the wrong decisions from the beging. Apart from that i really enjoy the game.

  4. Delfi Miy Uranga says:

    After playing the game on the BBC website I was sent to jail …(ò_ó)

  5. Rocio Hartmann says:

    The first time I played I went to jail after choosing to improve machinery instead of working conditions. The game was very interesting.

  6. Joaquin Venini says:

    My result said that i should survive, but a crisis in the economy could ruin my business.

  7. Gonzalo Vazquez Avila says:

    I played the game “Who wants to be a cotton millionaire?” and I enjoyed it very much even in spite of loosing miserably and going to the debtors’ jail.

  8. Luna Pérez Muniz says:

    First of all I chose the location of Cumbria, where we did not need to move. It was not a wise choice since the main city was nearer to the other location. Following, I chose to hire women and hildren since they are much more cheaper than men and it was an intelligent choice indeed. Afterwards, I decided to invest on the steam engine instead of in more workers or in a windmill in order to incrase energy. It was a smart choice given the fact that it was the “technology of the future”. Finally, I was asked to invest in better working conditions or in new machinery. I chose new mchinery. The game told me that although I had made good decisions, choosing to stay in Cumbria undermined my long term profitability.I might be able to survive, yt itwill be tough. An uncertain future!

  9. Lucila Giambruni says:

    After playing Cotton Millionaire, I got a result in which I had spent too much money and not focused so much on my workers and the factory conditions. Therefore, the game questions me whether I would be able to “leave the people filthy” while I “grow fat”.
