Cashflow 101 Board Game

Have you played Monopoly 百万富翁? A friend invited me to try out Cashflow 101. It is created by Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.

The game gave a good overview of cashflow rat race and how to achieve financial freedom. For sure, it is not as easy as in the game, it is a mock game. However, it does gave some good overview for one to put more effort in his own financial planning.

What is your dream? Does your dream need money to buy? If so, please remembered to buy dream that you can afford beside doing investment/saving. Delay gratification is a key to rich was one of the key summary by the organizer. However, I would say Delay gratification is a key to achieve financial freedom.

Let's have a quick overview of the game. If not mistaken, maximum 5 players are allowed. Each draw a card with to start with., e.g. salary, debts and etc. Then we will write it all at a piece of paper provided, which is a summary of the role financial blueprint. We start with the rat race circle. Each one use the dice to make a move. While moving, there will be pay check cycle, doodads, charity option to roll two dice, small/big opportunity, the market and etc. Those are life mock situation. One of the organizer brought out a good point that in the game, when we hit doodad, we have no choice but to pay, but in real life we have a choice not to buy certain item. In the game, we have an opportunity to invest only when we hit small/big deal opportunity. In real life, we always have a choice.

It is recommended to play with experienced player, so they can give guidance in terms of the playing instructions and also the steps to achieve financial freedom relate back to real life. Thanks BL the organizer, SH and (oops I forgot your name, but I remember you :) ) the game coordinators.

It is available for sale in Mega Mall, Prai, Penang.
