Cashflow 101 or the Cashflow board game as it’s also known, has been dubbed “Monopoly on Steroids”. This educational board game is a game designed as a learning tool for teaching basic accounting skills and financial management. The game has been created as a method of re-enforcing the information contained within the already popular books released by Robert Kiyosaki. The most notable being the number 1 best selling financial book of all time called “Rich Dad Poor Dad”.
The game achieves it’s educational value by simulating real life financial situations and strategies, thus allowing players to gain insight into their own personal finance and investing without having to bare any of the risks usually associated.
Cashflow 101 is split into two sections, the “Rat Race” and the “Fast Track”, the Fast Track allows you to proceed around the board much quicker but it also means you have more money and more investments to make in order to prevent your cash from being lost to lawsuits and tax. The Rat Race is a somewhat slower pace and in contrast to the two dice rolled in the Fast Track you only roll one dice. You move around the board drawing cards from four decks, the deck you select from depends on which space you land. Some of the deals you’re forced to make may be good and some maybe bad and lead to financial loss.
For a game which teaches finance, accounting, investing and management at the same time, it really makes the learning experience fun.
