I found my old game of Payday while visiting my mom's home in the summer, and played it many times with my kids, 8 and 4. They loved it, so I decided to buy a copy of the new version for our house. They still love playing it, but we are disappointed with some of the changes:

1) No savings option -- this is really disturbing, actually. You aren't given any incentive for saving your money anymore. There used to be a 10% interest payment on whatever you had in savings at the end of the month. For my money-conscious 8 year old, that was a GREAT lesson. Yes, they do still charge 10% interest on loans, but he has learned already not to borrow unless he has absolutely no other choice...

2) No insurance cards. The '70s version of the game had insurance cards that you could buy to protect yourself from automobile or medical bills. This was also a GREAT lesson that my son picked up on early. A shame this is no longer possible.

3) I wish there weren't quite so many "windfall" type opportunities -- too many lottery spaces, gambling options, etc. Too few regular bills and real life events. Nothing at all about work -- would have been nice to have some "you got a promotion" spaces that give you a salary raise (though I admit this is really hard to track in the Game of Life), etc.

In general, though, I agree that this is a fun game that even young kids seem to like (my 4YO is asking me to play it several times a day!), and a good way for kids to start learning about everyday money management.

I have an orginal pay day game from the 1970's. The new game isn't practical. When the smallest paper bill that you can use is a 100.00 bill then it isn't something that the average eight year old can comprehend. I had been using my old GAME as a tool for tutoring a child. He loved the game so I decided to purchase a game for him as a Christmas gift. He was disappointed in the fact that the game was so different. He could count the money and connect it to real money with the old game BUT with the new game he can't relate to the money because he has never seen the money(VALUES) that he is playing wilth. If I had ordered the game for myself or my child, I would've sent it back. VERY POOR AS A REALITY GAME TO HELP CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT THE REAL VALUE OF MONEY!

Be advised, this 30th anniversary edition only has 4 game pawns versus the 6 the older versions have - so only 4 can play. This edition also lacks the "mad money" cards - a favorite of ours. The game PayDay is fun and educational but this edition is disappointing - I don't know why they changed a good thing....

We found the "original" version on ebay (used) and it has 6 pawns and "mad money" cards - my daughter enjoys the original version over this one. But these minor changes might not be important to you - it's personal preference. The overall goal of the game and how it is played is not different between the two version we own.

I was expecting the same PayDay game I had as a child. This one is way too easy to make way too much money. The denominations are so unrealistic it doesn't give one a sense of reality (life) like the old one did. I am very disappointed.

This game is very fun. it can be as long or as short (time wise) as you want it. You learn about money and bills and such, but don't really see it as a learning game because its fun....

The game that I purchased said Classic edition, but it definitely was not the same one I played as a kid. Half the board is Deals and Found a Buyer and it strongly encourages loans while no longer including a savings option. It seems many more lottery and gambling type option. We plan to modify the board to make it more fun to play, but overall, a disappointment.

My son learned this game at camp this summer. We got him his own for his 7th birthday. It is great for his math and planning skills. Some of the concepts are way over his head (ie. borrowing money). But that makes this a great game he'll grow into over the next few years. He loves Monopoly Junior, but it's almost too young for him at this point and "grown up" Monopoly is still a bit too advanced. This game is perfect.

This game is enjoyed by the whole family. Our children are 3-10 (the 3 year old plays on a team with someone else). This game has made our 8&10 year old realize that money needs to be budgeted. They watch as there money gets taken away for their bills, vacations and unexpected repairs. It has started many converastions about the importance of saving money and how important it is to budget for emergencies. We have enjoyed watching them use their real life allowance more wisely since playing this game. What a fun lesson and game all in one.
