Advantages of playing Cashflow101 – by Robert Kiyosaki

If you have not played the board game Cashflow 101 by Robert Kiyosaki you should.

Strong advice I know but I do believe everyone can benefit by playing this game.

Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad is also the creator of the board game  CashFlow 101.

In this game the objective is to get out of the Rat Race and into the fast track.

The way you do this in the game is to build your passive income to be greater than your living expenses. You can land on things like “divorce” “being downsized” tax “audit” and other things that happen in life.

Cashflow 101

There are many advantages that come with  playing this game.

It teaches you a lot about investing and how to become wealthy. It teaches you how to build a passive income and get out of the rat race.

It is much better to learn from a board game than make costly mistakes in real life with real money.

Most importantly it teaches you about yourself, your attitude to money, your spending habits and much more.

I share how it works and my story when I first played this game in the video. I also show you the game.


As I said in the video I have a business degree, I am a CPA and a Financial Planner.   And I have learned more about money, my mindset to money and wealth accumulation from Cashflow 101 than I did at University or in any of my studies.

When I was working with the company that promoted Robert Kiyosaki in Australia and New Zealand I sometimes heard people say the game cost too much.  Compared to what – degrees? Or costly investing mistakes?  This game is a small investment for what it teaches.

It is also a lot of fun to play Cashflow 101. We formed a group several years ago and played CashFlow regularly. We graduated to playing in teams which was really interesting and I found I learned more about my behavior in this situation. And we had fun 🙂

I also have learned it does not matter which profession or job you start with in this game. We can all get out of the rat race if we learn the skills.

If you have not played Cashflow 101 and you are even vaguely serious about building your financial security then I really encourage you to play it.

Advantages of playing Cashflow101  – by Robert Kiyosaki

Robert says “how you play the game is how you play in life”. I think it is better to learn  about attitudes that do not support our success in business and investing by playing a board game than by having the lessons in real life.

I am not suggesting you will not have any “learning experiences” in real life because you played  CashFlow 101  but you will get to know more about yourself and the choices you make. It is a good way to get those subconscious beliefs you may not know you have out on the table.

Please leave me your comments below and share this post as I know it will benefit people.

Make it a great day.

    Hi Sue,

    Cashflow 101 sounds interesting indeed 🙂

    Well, I wouldn’t say I’ve played the same game or perhaps we don’t have it our end , or I might not be knowing about it. But we do have a similar game called ‘Business’, which again has developed and got better than what it was earlier. I think perhaps it might be quite similar to Cashflow 101.

    Oh yes…we love playing that and it’s often on the long weekends when the game carries on more than a few hours to a few days instead. I guess the whole game takes a lot of time, as compared to the other games, that’s what makes it more interesting. And you are right, there are a lot of choices you make and that helps you decide which one is a better option.

    It does teach you a lot about money, how to place it and save it up, and what more you can do with it. Yes, even the taxes and the way to deal with finances, only makes you better. My kids learn a great deal about their money habits from this game. It is an intelligent game and makes you very aware, focused, and it’s fun alongside.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

      Hi Harleena

      Maybe the game is not marketed where you are as there is a physical shipping that has to happen. Although I know it is in China and South Africa which are both far from the USA 🙂 It is available on the internet.

      Do you have Rich Dad Poor Dad in bookstores? Just curious 🙂

      Sounds like you have a very similar game anyway and I am glad you play that. It is so good you play it with your kids too. So many of us grew up without proper education on money habits. For me it was just work hard and get a good job which I know was common thinking.

      When I was a kid I was addicted to the game Monopoly. Do you have that? I think it must have originated in England as it was based on English streets and places. Although I bet the Americans had their own version 🙂

      I have just seen so many people play this game and I know it brings up some deep beliefs that need to be brought up and dealt with.

      Thanks for your comment and so good to hear of another similar game. You too have a great week Harleena.


      1. Harleena Singh

        Hi Sue,

        Perhaps it’s not marketed this end, but yes – Monopoly is something we played when we were kids too and that’s a lot like Business. I think that really taught us a lot about saving, counting money, and where to invest intelligently, what to sell, what to buy, and all this helped us a lot when we were kids.

        We now have Business as another alternative and quite like Monopoly, which I play with my kids, though been ages since we sat down to play. 🙂

        Thanks for the reminder though 🙂

          Hi Harleena

          Glad you have monopoly. We have played it many times with out kids too. Now even though they are grown up when they come to stay they still love to play it. I think we are all quite competitive too.

          It sounds like CashFlow was not marketed over there. There are shipping logistics to be sorted of course. Also a local partner to sell etc like we did here in Australia.

          Thanks for popping back here. I love knowing what more about other cultures. There are always so many similarities as we become more global. I love that.

          Have an awesome week Harleena.

    Hi Sue,

    Thank you so much for sharing Robert Kiyosaki’s signatory game. I have heard a lot about it but have not played that before. I have not a shadow of doubt that it would be a great way to open the eyes for a lot of people regarding our attitude towards our career path.

    Thank you for sharing your insight, from a CPA and a Financial Planner’s perspective!

    Wealth creation indeed depends a lot on the choices we make. Focus on one income? It is risky in today’s economy when there is no such thing as a ‘secure career’ anyone. Those like you who make a conscious decision to create wealth through internet marketing or other means are onto a more secure future!

    Thanks, Sue!

      Hi Viola

      I was sure you would have played the game. Not sure why but just imagined you would have as it really is about creating passive income to get out of the rat race so very inline with Network Marketing.

      It is a great game to play as a family too.

      Oh yes wealth creation does depend on the choices we make and as you know I have made some bad ones along the way. Of course then there are things like the GFC where many people lost money. We can not plan for every event in our life. And the game is a bit like that too. You can get downsized for instance 🙂

      Thanks for your comment Viola I appreciate it very much.

    Hi Sue,

    I am sure this game would teach more about ourselves and especially create a new mindset. We may think we have the necessary skills, but mindset is so important.

    I never played the game, but read his books and it really changed my perspective on how I now view money. I’m not one that keeps books, I read them and pass them on, but certain ones I love to keep. “Rich Dad Poor Dad” is one of them.

    Sometimes when I get befuddled, I go to that book to reinforce myself. I’m sure this game would be good practice for that!

    How wonderful it must have been to work with him. Robert is one of my “heroes” because just reading his books have helped me climb out of my box.

    Thanks for the share!

      Hi Donna

      Oh you really should play the game when you are caught up again after your shift. You would love it. Yes it teaches us a lot about our mindset about money and there is a fair bit of property stuff in there.

      I know the game very well and when we started playing with friends we all became so competitive. It is a lot of fun.

      Rich Dad Poor Dad is a classic for sure and one I too will always keep. Not sure if you have read The Cashflow Quadrant but that is my favorite of Robert’s books. It is one I think most home business owners should read because many do not understand they need to outsource. I know you do 🙂

      You know Donna I am blessed to have worked with Robert but to me he is sorta like someone I knew who became famous if you get me. When you know someone before they are so well known you hold them in a different context. He does have a brilliant mind and I love listening to him. My favorite times were when we just hung out as a group.

      Thanks for your comment here and see you day after tomorrow 🙂


  4. Dragan Palla

    Hi Sue,

    Cashflow101 sounds interesting and like you said it can be very helpful in real life. I think it’s better to practice on trials and errors on this game rather than in real life.

    Another interesting thing is through this game man can realize some bad habits and actually work (play) to correct’em.

    Thanks Sue for sharing this interesting post.

      Hi Dragan

      Yes much better to learn on a game than in real life. It is an awesome game and has helped many people. I think that we get to understand our own mindset is so important.

      Dragan I tried to comment on your guest blogger’s post yesterday and I was taken to a page that told me I appeared to be a spambot. I did leave a message via your contact form not sure if you saw it. Would love to comment 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts here.

      Hi Karin

      The game is available in an online version so probably can do on mobile now. To me it was not the same as I love the old fashioned board games. But I know many people are into online games.

      Thanks for your comment Karin.


  5. Adrienne

    Hey Sue,

    Confession time! I’ve never read any of Robert’s books and have never played this game. I’m not a finance person and have always been horrible with math. I didn’t even enjoy playing Monopoly when I was a kid so I know this would have bored me to death.

    I don’t have a head for finance but I also don’t spend above my means. My Mom handles all investments and when she’s gone it will be my brother. I know, that’s just not my area of expertise and I honestly have no interest in it at all. My mind doesn’t function like that I guess. I’m sad, I know.

    You being the finance gal I can see where you would actually think this is fun. You’ve got to get out more Sue! 😉 Just kidding, you know I love you. I’m sure this game is very beneficial which is why it’s still around today.

      Hi Adrienne

      Sylviane left you a comment on your comment you should read it as she says she is not a numbers person either but she loved it. I will let you read her comment.

      Now first to his books. Rich Dad Poor Dad is a mindset book. You can hate maths and numbers and still love it. It is about taking control. I think I know you well enough to say I think you would be pleasantly surprised. His next book The Cashflow Quadrant is my favorite and that is about business.

      Anyway read what Sylviane said. 🙂

      Oh and I should add Robert is not a numbers person either. True. He used to have Ivan come up and do the detail at his seminars here. Robert is a big picture person.

      Thanks for sharing here Adrienne.

      See you tomorrow.


  6. William Butler

    Hello Sue,

    The game sounds valuable from the learning perspective. I think anything that is useful in teaching us more about life is valuable. I had never heard of the Cashflow game before.
    I trade most of what others would deem as leisure time for time on ongoing projects.

    May your week ahead be terrific!

      Hi Bill

      I am surprised you have never heard of it but then again I am sure many people have not.

      You know when I worked with the Rich Dad organization where it was played in workshops to me it was very much work. Then I never wanted to play it in my time off. Now I would call playing it personal development time as I always learn something more about me.

      Thanks for sharing here Bill and may you have a successful rest of your week. I only have one day left in this work week down here. But I am going to be working this weekend.


  7. Sylviane Nuccio

    Hi Sue,

    I’ve played Cashflow a few times with a group of like minded people back a few years ago. Eventually I stopped going due to my schedule that didn’t allow me to keep going, but this game is really the best game I’ve ever played.

    It’s not only a game but we certainly get an education when playing it. I don’t have a way of playing it now, but I’m glad your reminded me of it on this post, may be in the near future.

      Hi Sylviane

      I am glad you have played it and enjoyed it. It does take time though doesn’t it? When we first started playing the games would go for hours but over time they have become much quicker.

      It is an education for sure. Thanks also for commenting to Adrienne. I am glad you did that. I have played with people like that who as soon as the game is open say things like “I can’t do maths” , ” I am not good with this stuff” etc etc. That is exactly why Robert invented the game so we could deal with our blocks. He very much understands LOA. He is actually very much into metaphysics.

      Thanks for sharing here Sylviane. I appreciate it.

    Hi Sue,

    Even I am surprised that Bill didn’t know about CASHFLOW game as well 🙂
    Well, I was introduced to this game right since I read his book, “Cashflow Quadrants” and not just the game, I got so fascinated with his ideas, I read all the books in the Rich Dad Poor Dad series upto “Before You Quit Your Job”.

    Robert Kiyosaki is an awesome teacher, a great educator especially when it comes to financial education.

      Wow you did dig into Robert’s books and work. That is great as his teaching is excellent. I feel very blessed to have worked with him and learned so much from him.

      You mentioned the Cashflow Quadrants, that is my very favorite of his books and I think one every business person should read.

    Hi Sue,

    I attended a Rich Dad Poor Dad seminar about five years ago. It wasn’t Richard himself but a representative, yet the message was still affective.

    I’m like Adrienne, I’ve never heard of this game but the video you shared made understanding the purpose of it and how it’s played better for me and got my attention.

    What interests me is that I can learn about investing. My husband and I have talked about investing but don’t pursue it because it just sounds scary. Sounds like it’ll give me some valuable information to get started on it.

    Thanks for sharing this game with us Sue. Have a great day.

      Hi Corina

      Great you attended a Rich Dad seminar even if it was not Robert teaching.

      If you want to learn about investing then maybe investing in the game is a good way to learn. It does not teach you the ins and outs of property or other investments but it teaches us about ourselves and our mindset around money. I know many successful investors who said they learned a lot from this game.

      Thanks for visiting my blog and for commenting Corina. You too have a good day.

    I have almost bought this game so many times and never have. You have convinced me now to buy it.

    It is now on my list to buy.

    We are getting together with my kids for Christmas at a Vaction House and are bringing games. I am going to get this game and bring it.

    Thanks for the great video.

      It will be awesome to play it with your kids.

      It is fun and educational at the same time so that is a double benefit.

      Thanks for the feedback on the video. I thought that was the best way to explain it.

      I hope you are having a nice weekend.

  13. Dana

    Hi Sue,

    Oh how I used to love playing Cashflow. I was addicted to it – to be honest.
    I had it on my laptop and I would take it to work with me and play in-between clients – back in 2007.
    I had first learned about the game at a women’s networking event I went to and we would drink wine and play the board game.

    It was certainly an educational type of game – and made you think…but to me, it was also a lot of fun 😉

      Hi Dana

      I am glad you enjoyed playing it. I agree it is fun as well as being educational. So you have also played the electronic version. You know I only ever played that when Robert was beta testing it. I was in Phoenix with a whole bunch of us that were connected to Robert business wise and we played it. Now that was so much fun. Other than that I have always played the board game.

      Hey nice to see you face again. I hope all is good for your Dana.

      Hi Ankit

      It is a great game. There was an electronic version at one stage and maybe there still is I know when it was released it did not take off so well. The board game is designed to play with a group of people and that is half the learning and fun.

      Thanks for leaving a comment here Ankit, I appreciate it.
