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.

I thought this would be like the Pay Day game I played as a kid in the 80s. However, instead of paying rent, utilities, etc., it appears all the activity centers around sweepstakes, lotteries, casino night, and jackpots. I don't really want to embed the idea of gambling in my kids, not that I'm a prude, but there are way too many people in our area who are addicted to it, and it is obviously not a reliable source of income, budgeting, or financial management, as I had hoped this game would teach. I don't think it's even the same manufacturer, the graphics are different, it is definitely NOT the "classic edition." I dislike it so much, I'm not even giving it to Goodwill, instead threw it in the trash. Seems moronic, given the financial crisis of 2008 that we don't produce a game that's fun and intelligent about finances. And while there's a weekly gambling event, the board only allows for buying groceries once a month--guess that shows the manufacturer's priorities.

Our 8 year old is in love with this game that my sister and I played back in the early 80s. I'm feeling like a kid, again, too. Mama-in-law even commented on how it is a good depiction of "life" (i.e. paying bills, getting mail, getting paid). Our 6 year old enjoys playing it, too, but just doesn't quite grasp the concept yet.

A Kid's Review on July 21, 2005
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....

Got this for my kids for Christmas and we've had a challenge going twice a week ever since. I didn't really know much about this game until we played it. I love that you can choose how long you play for beforehand. For example 2 months will take almost an hour, 4 months will take about an hour and a half, and so on. Love that flexibility.
