I used this as a way for students to build budgets and create statistics for marketing purposes. All students kept day to day inventory in a spread sheet. Students were rewarded based on who made the most profit in a month. Students were able to complete at least one full month of sales in an hour.
The site is borked. You can sell cups with no lemons, ice or sugar. Students soon figured that you could cheat the game and they did.
