Cashflow Night by Walton could show you to break out of the rut and win big

A board game could help you take your first steps to aligning your life goals by re-looking your approach to cashflow and investment. "You could learn to be wealthy and that would be life changing. You could also learn to be wealthy by playing a game and that would be amazing", reads the website for Cashflow the Boardgame. The game was developed by Rich Dad Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki, and first played in Singapore in 1996. It has become popular worldwide, with a community of 1.5 million according to Kiyosaki.

While the marketing may seem too good to be true, the reasoning is that good investment principles cannot be memorised out of a handy textbook. On the other hand, trial-and-error experiments in real-life investing can be costly. CASHFLOW 101 (there is an advanced version called 202) was created to convey the principles of investing and wealth-building more effectively. In essence, players in groups of three to six manage assets and liabilities, trade stocks and fight their way out of the Rat Race - what Kiyosaki calls the daily grind that doesn't seem to provide any way to get to the next level.

Experience Cashflow the Boardgame in Singapore with the Walton International Group, which is hosting Cashflow Night in Singapore this June. While the game can be played online, face-to-face games with a good facilitator who can explain the nuances of the logic behind the gameplay can be crucial, explains Faith Ong Yan Ying, VP, Walton International Group. The company is a multinational, privately-owned real estate investment and development group concentrating on the research, acquisition, administration, planning and development of strategically located land in major North American growth corridors.

"I have personally learnt quite a bit from this board game myself," she said, noting that Cashflow the Boardgame can hone techniques for retirement. Initial games can be illuminating as they are most indicative of how a person's attitude towards money, she added.
