This interactive game about the Roaring Twenties asks if you have the wherewithal to survive that tumultuous decade. You’ll have to decide what are the best clothes to wear, the appropriate way to behave, and how to navigate society of the time. You can choose to see the options a man would have in four different situations, accumulate points if you make the right decisions, lose points if you don’t, and then try your hand at comparing the man’s options with a woman’s. See what is acceptable on vacation, at a night club, at the office, or at university. This game is presented by a museum in Canada, but the history is very like what happened in the United States at the same time period.
