Comparative advantage game

In this game, students try to assemble as many happy meals as possible. The cost of manufacturing each component (burger, chips, and a drink) varies between students, so some will find it relatively cheap to manufacture certain items, while others will find it more expensive.

In the first round, no trading is allowed, and students must manufacture everything themselves. But in the second round, they can trade freely -- allowing students to specialise in the components they can manufacture at the lowest cost, increasing overall benefit!
