There's three endings to this game: 5k, 10k, and 20k dollars. My goal is to get just enough money for the worst ending, then deliberately kill myself. I start off at the beginning by getting the mouse trap three straight times, which puts me one hit away from game over. If you hit the mousetrap the fourth time and you have enough money to win, then you get the ending the same as if you completed all 30 days.
I think the only route that would be faster is boxing-doctors-cash-trivia-???-trivia. That replaces the second doctor game with the ???. However, that would require getting $1,000 on both the cash and the ??? (which only has a 50% chance of giving you any cash to begin with) and I'm sure the odds are extremely against that happening.
You can get enough money after only one day by picking crackers and doing really well, but it turned out to be slower.
