What we're about

As a single parent, I came across some unique challenges, when I wanted to kick off the 9-5 Rat Race after I retired from the US Army. I want to share the struggle with other families in the area.

(we are open to all single people and families, but our focus still remain on Single Parents)

I find Rich Dad Poor Dad as a valuable tool to grow personal and achieve financial independence. Let's meet & Play this game and learn from each other.

Goal of this group is to provide Parents and their kids 14+ a short time away from their responsibilities, and allow them to hang out with other people in similar circumstances, and help them learn in a playful environment. An awesome way to teach your kids how money works.

The Ultimate Investing Game Is Now Better Than Ever!

How Will You Escape The Rat Race?
Battle your way out of the Rat Race by acquiring property, stocks, businesses and precious metals. You're not just playing against each other; you're playing against the housing market, the stock market and even Mother Nature.

CASHFLOW® starts you in a typical 9-to-5 job (that's not the fun part) and takes you on a journey to build up an arsenal of assets that will propel you into the fast track where real wealth is built (the fun part).

How can a game make you wealthy?
What makes CASHFLOW different from other financial resource games? CASHFLOW not only teaches you how to invest and acquire assets but most importantly how you behave within investing scenarios. You can test out strategies for building wealth you might never try in real life. If you're a saver, try aggressive investing. If you're a risk-taker, try slow growth. Win and Learn!

After almost 20 years of teaching the world how to create cash flow, we've updated the single greatest investing game of all time to be better than ever.

Updates:
Faster, more interactive game play
New ways to win
Updated cards, professions and spaces
Beautiful new art and style
New custom dice and mice meeples
More intuitive income statement
More fun and learning than ever!

We plan to meet once every month to play the game at the SUJU's Cafe at Stevenson in Fremont.

Lessons Learned by Playing Cashflow 101

There are a lot of great things that can be learned by playing Cashflow 101. Here are just a few that I have found.

1. There Are Various Investing Strategies

Many people do not realize that there are various strategies for investing. The game provides a portion of the available strategies that allow people to start to realize how many different strategies there are, such as stock, mutual funds, bonds, real estate, small businesses and large businesses.

2. The Market Changes

Anyone that was investing in real estate around 2008 probably learned this first hand. After years of appreciation and property values going up, the bubble burst and property values fell a lot in some areas. The game shows changing markets and their impacts on the investing strategy that you are using.

3. Financial Freedom Can Mean Different Things

A lot of people think that being financially free means being rich. The game shows a different approach, which is financial freedom by having more passive income than expenses.

4. More Income Does Not Always Make Financial Freedom Easier

The first time I played Cashflow I was disappointed that I was the teacher when others were doctors and lawyers. The light bulb moment I had that game was that I was able to get out of the rat race much faster than them because my expenses were much lower as the teacher.

5. Your Risk Tolerance

It is very important to understand how much risk you are comfortable with. As you play the game, you will be able to understand your personal risk tolerance and that of the people you play with.

6. The Impact of Your Risk Tolerance

Different risk levels carry different rewards in downsides. The riskier investor may score big one game, but go bankrupt the next. The risk-adverse player may not get out of the rat race, or may take a longer time. Understanding the impact of your risk tolerance will assist you in setting realistic expectations and goals.

7. What Income Statements & Balance Sheets Are

It is important for everyone to understand their personal finances and how they are calculated, but it is especially important for investors. The game provides an introductory way to learn about 2 two important reports, how to generate them and what they mean.

8. Paying Down Debt vs. Investing

There are different schools of thought on whether it is better to pay down debt or invest. In general, you want to pursue what has the highest return, but you can try out both strategies in the game.

9. Partner Thoughts

Many people invest in real estate with a spouse or other partner. Playing this game with your partner will allow you and them to understand each other’s risk tolerance, investing thoughts and strategies. After the game, you can review the game and discuss the impacts to your real life investing.

10. Your Ability to Partner

Many people see real estate as a cut-throat industry where other investors are your competition. In reality, there are a lot of benefits to partnering with others, especially in a situation where you have a good deal but don’t have the means to complete it alone.

11. Impacts of Life Events

The game contains life events such as losing a job, having children or getting divorced. This allows you to be aware of these events and figure out how to handle them when they occur.
