Treasury: Check Into the 'Bad Credit Hotel'

It's unclear how this interactive game tests credit know-how.

Check it out. The Treasury's trying to get us to swallow the bitter pill of credit education with an interactive game!

It's called the Bad Credit Hotel, where you "check in and learn the basics of maintaining good credit." At first, I got excited because I thought it might be like Choose Your Own Adventure. And it may well be. But either I'm not good at this game or I'm missing something, because after the hotel clerk ushered me into the parlor, a man in a top hat asked me to find his spectacles, and I gave up after clicking on everything on the page. Luckily, I can check out anytime I like!
