The primary objective by Robert Kiyosaki in creating this board game is to share his financial knowledge of the Rich Dad Poor Dad ontology. He encourages self education on the money subject and had a wonderful insight on how to generate more income through the study of financial statement or how to make your money grow with little effort, which will eventually get you out of the ‘rat race’. All the teaching conducted by Robert Kiyosaki in this Cashflow 101 board game is about passive income and how to think out of the box.
This is not only a magnificent board game, but it is also fun to play with. What’s more, it teaches you a thing or two every time you play it, even after you had played it for a hundred times. How? The idea of passive income itself requires more creative thinking to fully grab hold of how it actually works, hence, with the help of this board game; you can have a brief idea on how to manage your everyday businesses without much hiccups.
As stated in his writing of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki incorporates some of his personal findings into this cashflow board game. Such can be seen as this board game comes in two stages. One is ‘the rat race’. In this stage, players’ objective is to escape from the ‘rat race’ by generating positive cash flow or ‘passive income’. This can be achieved with the purchases of properties, businesses or investments like mutual fund or stock. The key is to make sure your earnings exceed your expenses. However, during this stage, no winners will be named.
Once you have successfully fled from the ‘rate race’ and stepped into the second stage which is call ‘the fast track’. You will obtain a ‘new earnings’ by increasing your passive income by 100. In order to win, your goal is to purchase your ‘dream’ which will be selected at the beginning of the game; or by achieving a set target, with an additional $50,000 through purchases of business opportunities.
While playing, ‘score cards’ and financial statement will also be included. Players have to jot down their financial statement for easy reference. Sounds pretty interesting right?
