1. Read the book first before playing, otherwise it will probably all seem boring and too weird.
2. The game makes clear: The way to make passive cashflow is NOT on the positive cash flow from rental properties. (Suprised?) The rental income only secures the property, which you must be able to sell for a profit. The money made on the gains from selling the houses is then used to buy businesses - these are what give you the passive cashflow to finally "get out of the rat race."
3. Take the income statement sheet you've used playing the game and fill it out for your own life. You'll be surprised how little your free cash flow, and passive income really is. Use the excel worksheet to track your progess month to month. An excellent motivator.
Game Design Problems (and Fixes):
1. The cards which allow you to buy insanely low priced shares of stocks for $1, which you can be certain will go up to $20 or $40 later when the right card comes up. Life is not that predictable. Remove these cards from the deck.
2. Other players will frequently advise on what is a good deal or not. This is a mistake, because it doesn't allow other players to MAKE mistakes, and takes much of the fun out of the game. Instead, allow each player to make their choice to buy a property (or not) WITHOUT input, and only after let the other players give their opinion on this course of action.
3. The game takes a loooong time with 5-6 players.Read more ›
This is a good way to help you think in a financially healthy way. You see that spending money on “doo-dads” doesn’t help your bottom line, that borrowing from the bank is sometimes necessary to purchase a good property, that the stock market can dramatically grow - or shrink - your capital, what to look for in rental properties, and you get an appreciation for the “big picture” – that you have to work toward increasing your passive income and not sweat little expenses. It’s all about helping you and your friends train your minds to think “passive income is preferable to a paycheck from my employer”.
Some people have criticized the game for using dice (like Monopoly), for not allowing people to decline the purchase of a “doo-dad”, and for having a bias toward using large stock market profits to catapult players into the fast track. The game is not perfect, it’s not identical to real life, and there will forever be ways to improve it.
Cashflow succeeds in it’s mission to teach you and your friends some of the roads to financial freedom.
This is my biggest problem with the game, because after playing it a lot it is very clear that buying these types of stocks and then selling them when the price goes up for huge profits is the best way to get your hands on enough cash to invest in the amount of real estate it would take to get you on the "fast track". This is not the lesson that the game should be teaching (just like the lesson of getting lucky) for people to become wealthy. Robert Kiyosaki even advocates in several of his books how stocks are risky and unreliable b/c of the baby boomers, enron-like companies, yada-yada-yada... and then he includes them as a necessity to winning a game.
If you're like me, you bought or are considering buying this game because you think it will be one of the best ways to condition yourself to think and act in a way that will create wealth. And like me, you either are or will be disappointed if you buy the game and have already learned the basic concept of creating wealth through real estate.Read more ›
