The Lemonade Stand game shows the concepts of the business world through the use of tricks and tactics such as demand and supply. In the game, the players are asked to create their business lemonade stand and to set the prices for the lemonade based on the customer preferences and the weather conditions.

From the instructions and direction given to play the game, I thought the game would be easy, but this was not the care when I started the game. In my consideration, I decided to stock the products that I will use in production including lemons, cups, sugar, and ice. To ensure that I achieved maximum profit, I set a higher price for my produce but due to the weather I had no customer and most of the lemon rotted and the ice melted. I did not anticipate this to happen since it was just an online game……..
