How do you define success? Whatever your definition may be, this game allows players to imagine life in different scenarios while teaching real life application of money in everyday situations. The object is to become the first player to gather eight success pieces on his Success Combination Card. Some success pieces might include having a career, finishing your education, having a spouse and kids, investing, starting a business, or giving to charity. A player gathers his success pieces as he lands on spaces specific to his card and is able to pay for his piece. Also, if a player lands on a space that is not on his combination card, he can sell this piece to another player at a negotiable price. Each player begins with $3,000, which might quickly grow or dwindle depending on what spot he lands on around the board. For example, a player might collect lawyer fees on one turn and pay for a wedding on the next turn. There are home, vehicle, cell phone, and other bills to be paid, but also money to be earned from career incomes and investments. If a player is in financial trouble, he can sell back a card to the bank but will only receive 50% of its value (learning the concept of depreciation). The first player to gather their eight success combination cards without going broke will win the game. What a creative way to teach about real life finances while having family game night! 2-8 players. Ages 8 and up. ~ Gina
