Games Mentioned On The Show:
<27:09> Cash Crunch Games
Talking about money and finances can be boring enough to endure as adults. So why do we expect young kids to be running around with the knowledge of Warren Buffet? The good thing is, learning about money doesn’t have to be painful for kids. This is where Cash Crunch Games comes in. Kids can gain some financial literacy, and have a little fun doing it too.

<43:28> Letters From the Mailbag
Karen: Where does one look for board game recommendations that aren’t marketing ploys?
Spencer: Pandemic Legacy is a favorite board game for me and my wife to play after the kids go to bed. What are some other great cooperative games with a good story my wife and I can play together?
Kevin: What are some good two player board games?
Nikki: Which boardgames have translated excellently to digital format? What kid friendly games would you introduce an aspiring gaming family to (ages 5-12)? If you could only take two games to your next family gathering – what would they be?
Rory: I have one that the introvert in me has always wondered, are there any 1 person board games? Also what about the future of board games? Are they going to take a different direction due to technology changes that have shifted the dynamic of who is playing and what they are playing etc.?
