BBC NEWS | Business | Money matters in cybercash game

"In the bank's Stagecoach Island game, players explore an imaginary world using virtual money, which they earn by answering financial questions.

It uses one of the existing massive multi-player environments on the web, Second Life, developed by Linden Lab.

The game lets players create their own characters and interact with others.

A pilot version of Stagecoach Island was launched for young adult Texans in San Diego and Austin over the Labor Day weekend earlier this month. The pilot will run until mid-November."
