Goozex was created in part to avoid the difficulty of hunting for a suitable trade for your game — in other words, to bypass the normal barter system. A barter system is a system in which goods are traded directly for other goods. This has some obvious shortcomings, the main one being that the person who has what I want may not want what I have to trade.

Goozex created a similar setup using a medium of exchange creatively titled “Goozex Points.”


I've heard of a system like this before. It's called currency. We already have many of them (e.g., the dollar) that are extremely effective.

I assume the big obstacle is that kids don't have bank accounts and credit cards?
