Used with the cashflow mobile app, this game is life changing. I've read several of his books, yet, learning through concept vs innate strategy is a different ball game. Having opened the box after a family dinner ( bought it for myself and my brother ) it was so well designed and fun, everyone decided to play. Interesting to see how the game reflects reality in someways. Habits and purchasing tendencies ( and dare I say money fears ) after a few rounds became clear in the choices of each player. I found it fascinating to watch one person go from gambler to emotionally stuck due to frivolous purchases and start to make riskier emotionally driven moves as he fell behind. Behavior changes reflected his bank account, which was a total shock to all. 2 of us are big fans of law of attraction and abundance excercises. He's never been a believer, but the numbers and body language was clearly in need of help, there was no denying it. So we ran an experiment. 5 rounds we cheered him until he laughed and THEN made the choice to roll. The results. The more he had fun, the less emotional value he gave to money, the more his brain could make choices from a place of "it's coming now," vs " I don't have". Eventually hitting it big on a stock sale, he actually danced. After that sale, it was like a business mogul was unleashed. Moves became smarter and mistakes learned.
Family members who we thought would win didn't ( total shock as they are great in business in real life ) and those whom we thought would lose, won. It made us all realize that our financial intelligence (and emotional attachments to money) needed a tune up. So much so we've decided that game nights are in order and will be buying the 202 version after mastering this one.
The product itself is top notch quality and came in 2 days even though we selected free ground shipping. In conjunction with the app, its a much more favorable experience than doing all the math by hand. Allowing us to focus on strategy first.
I'm a designer and attention to user interface, legibility, easy learning curve are important. The quality and organization of the game is very good. The box itself is not as big as I thought, but after unfolding, the game goard extends quite large. Can't compare to the classic as I've never seen one in person. As a first time user, the layout was simple, great color printing, durable paper stock and the dice & mice materials are of solid quality.
The guidebook is fairy easy to use and navigate. There were a few questions that were not in the game rules and in a way had to create our own interpretation or fall into the answers during play. Such as how do you sell gold? Does one have to put back cards after property purchase or keep them like monopoly?
These are more during the learning curve phase. The first time, it took us about 4+ hours to play with 4 people. Turns, learning rules and making decisions do take time. It was so much fun, can't wait to get more family members involved. Everyone is reconsidering their finances and some have already looked into more business opportunities and debt consolidation to get out of the rate race.
Needless to say thank you for this game. I can only hope 202 carries these same standards and results. ( and app, love the app hope 202 gets developed soon )
If you want to learn to change financial habits and/or pin point where growth should happen in your life, get this game, now.
Not knowing what to expect at first, I thought that the occupations would be unbalanced; for example, it would be unfair to be the lawyer who makes so much more than the janitor. However, as a game this balance works very well, since the higher income salaries will typically have larger student loans, credit cards, or house payments to overcome. The higher salaried occupations have a steeper challenge initially, since the passive income level to be reached to outweigh higher expenses is necessarily higher. However, once these higher salaries climb out of the inner rat race ring, they have a huge windfall in the latter fourth of the game that dwarfs those with lower salaries. This creates different strategies for the two occupations but keeps balance.
The expense "doodads" built into the game, as well as available real estate investments or market changes feel realistic to current day prices. It is obvious that each card was written with a lot of thought behind it; many of the Deal cards read just like newspaper ads you would see for investment opportunities in the "real world."
Everyone has different ideas on the best way to treat your money and savings; at the least this game will open discussion to some more advanced financial topics. The game does a good job of introducing the basics on the idea of passive income by way of real estate and investments.
If you use the paper ledgers, Cashflow involves a lot of bookkeeping. You'll absorb a 2 BR/1 BA mortgage, taking out a $5,000 loan which changes your mortgages ledger, which changes your expenses ledger, which changes your passive income ledger, your total income number, and then finally your monthly income number. All of those changes will involve heavy use of your eraser. There is a free app to use with the game (Cashflow Statement Calculator on Android and iOS) that works great and calculates a lot of this automatically.
It can be frustrating sometimes to spend several minutes working out a decision, then by chance land on the Downsizing space and ruin your strategy. For a game that asks so much of you to analyze and plan, there are a lot of random events built in. For example, if my goal was to pay off my credit card and bank loans, I sure wouldn't be buying a cappuccino machine for $300! To balance these sorts of things, it would have been cool to build in a "quality of life" mechanic where you could decide to take a family vacation, join a gym, or something similar to increase a quality of life quotient - not that happiness can be bought, of course!
Cashflow at first glance looks at best, challenging, and at worst, like a spreadsheet simulator. You'll start the game by being presented with a cash ledger and a financial overview tracking sheet (unless you're using the app). If that doesn't scare you off, you'll then be assigned an occupation. Within a few turns you'll learn that it does have a lot of chance game elements and feels somewhat like typical American roll-and-move mechanics in that way. You'll land on the "downsizing" space, which hits your bank account immediately with your current monthly expenses and costs you two turns. Or you'll land a card that offers you the opportunity to win a $10,000 windfall by rolling a number larger than 3.
Cashflow has a lot more to it than chance, though. The meat of the game is spent juggling constant decisions on which Deals to buy, when to sell (if at all), when to pay off debts, or when to take a chance offered on one of the game cards. The free App allows you to spend less time doing the actual math from turn to turn and more time actually deciding what the best option is. Still, though, some players enjoy the turn to turn bookkeeping; my wife for one. To each their own.
The last fourth of the game is not as interesting strategically as the first three fourths; but that does work thematically. You have spent "years" building your wealth and then you can sit back, "relax," and just roll die - relying on the luck of the roll. This can be a little frustrating or exciting, depending on how you feel about luck in games. In our game, one player was the first one into the final round, but hit each of the first four worst game spaces, knocking her out of a first place chance.
A review of the game would be remiss without some thoughts on the educational value of the game. As I understand it, that is the purpose per the game creator. I'd say that he definitely succeeded on both fronts: it doesn't get bogged down in the minutia of interest rates or finance, but opens up the conversation of different investment options, the importance of saving, and anti-materialism. Plus it's a lot of fun to play.
