Can You Keep Your Summer Job?

Congratulations!  You have just landed your first summer job and it is down at the Jersey Shore!  Your boss has put you in charge of his boardwalk booth.  The boss has asked you to design a game that will attract customers but still make a profit.  You are responsible to design and create the game so the boss makes a profit.  You will present your design ideas and after they are approved, create and present the game.
