This holiday season, don’t get sucked into buying toys that will just end up in tomorrow’s donation piles. Give your family the gift of financial literacy – starting with the board games, CASHFLOW and CASHFLOW for Kids, recently redesigned for a new generation of players.
From the New York Times best-selling author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and the Rich Dad series, Robert Kiyosaki, these educational board games were created to give families a sneak peek into strategies to create lifelong financial freedom including how to invest and how to build wealth as well as tips for maximizing passive income. Like his books, Kiyosaki uses the games to teach players investing strategies, financial mindsets, and secrets of money creation that only the rich know.
“The reason I love games, and the reason I created CASHFLOWand CASHFLOW for Kids, is because whether you did well in school or not, the more you play the games, the smarter you will get financially,” said Kiyosaki. “My poor dad thought making mistakes was bad. The only place making mistakes is bad is in school. In the real world, a person who makes the most mistakes—and learns from them—wins.”
Kiyosaki added, “With these games, I want players to make as many mistakes as they can, try new things and, most importantly, learn. Players should set out to have fun and take risks—after all, it’s only play money.”
CASHFLOW and CASHFLOW for Kids aren’t your average financial literacy games. The award-winning personal finance games use the best components of stock-investing games, business–building games, and real estate–investing games to challenge players’ perceptions of how to generate and sustain wealth.
The object of the board games is to increase each player’s financial IQ so they can maximize earning potential, build more passive income through investments, stop working so hard and find ways to make their money work for them. Ultimately, players will learn how to get out of the “rat race” and onto the “fast track” — both in the game and in the real world.
Updated CASHFLOW and CASHFLOW for Kids game elements include the introduction of “dream” spaces on the Fast Track portion of the board. Robert and Kim Kiyosaki, creators of the CASHFLOW games, believe having a dream is a remarkably important element to keep people motivated when times get tough. Additionally, gender stereotypes were removed from professions cards, paper money was reintroduced and the board is more visually appealing with new images, fonts and more vivid colors.
While playing CASHFLOW won’t teach you how to get a promotion or find a better job, it will enable you to evaluate opportunities, understand markets and debt, and test your risk tolerance—all while building toward your dreams of traveling the world, curing a disease or saving the rainforest. This unique board game about money will give players the motivation and a valuable roadmap to retiring young and rich and providing a better life for their families.
Plus, with the newly refined CASHFLOW for Kids, youngsters will learn core principles of income, debt, cashflow and capital gains as well as assets and liabilities in a fun, easy-to-understand way. Playing CASHFLOW for Kids uses real-world examples to get kids to practice investing, acquiring assets and dealing with the perils of liabilities. Parents can use the game as a springboard to discuss important topics like money, investments and debt in a practical way.
“When we play games, it is the truest example of our real-life behavior,” added Kiyosaki. “Kids learn lessons by playing games, it’s the best way for them to create smart money habits they’ll use later in life. CASHFLOW for Kids helps develop a strong foundation of financial intelligence and encourages kids to develop a mindset about money that challenges their imagination and puts no limits on what they can achieve in life.”
Since its release in 1996, CASHFLOW has been played by hundreds of thousands of families around the world, making it one of the most popular board games ever. Thousands of CASHFLOW Clubs are hosting game events around the world as “people teach people” how to put their money to work for them, instead of working hard for money all their lives.
