Product Description:

This board game stresses the importance of home ownership, insurance, and investments. You set a time limit, for example 1 hour, start playing the game, and whoever has the most money and assets with the least debt, wins! If anyone runs out of money, they must drop out of the game. Spin the wheel to move along the board and experience dental bills, groceries, collecting interest of saving certificates, repairs for appliances, renting, buying clothing, and that's just the beginning. This game exposes the realities of economics and the value of being financially independent. ~ Jon
