All U.S. Real Game Series programs were developed by NLWC and the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (NOICC) and its network of State Occupational Information Committees (SOICCs). When the NOICC-SOICC network was de-funded in 2000 and The Real Game Series partnership was transferred by the U.S. Department of Education (OVAE) to America's Career Resource Network Association (ACRNA), a voluntary association of former SOICC Directors. Real Game Series programs have been shipped to over 30,000 U.S. schools and community agencies to date. Many long-time users of earlier editions are now migrating to The Real Game 2.1 Digital Edition.

All programs are effective for a range of ages. For example, The Play Real Game for primary schools is effective in juvenile justice with teens and young adults with low reading levels and attitudes are issues. The Real Game 2.1 Digital is ideal for middle grades, but works well in foster care settings, summer camps, and adult settings where literacy, readiness and behavior are challenges. The Be Real Game is ideal in high schools, and effective in colleges and universities.
