Playing games as a family kept my family together for a very long time. My sister and I would play and my dad would referee for as long as I can remember. Parents should encourage family time and there are quite a few fun games out there for teens too! I just received a came called Thrive Time for teens. Thrive Time puts life into perspective for kids, the players are presented with real life scenarios and you have to make smart decisions. All of the real life scenarios are geared toward teenagers. Do you want to buy a car, do you want to save your money, can you manage money. Money management is something I think should be taught in school. Yikes, I’ve seen firsthand how hard it is for some to learn how to manage money. Whoever gets to the end of the board first wins! Woo Hoo! Have fun, make decisions and be a family! A great board game for teens. Oh, and my favorite part of the game is that it encourages giving to charity. Now that is my kind of game!!
You make decisions and take action!
- Smart Spending
- Going to College
- Giving back
- Buying a Car
- Using Credit Cards
- Starting a Business
How to Play the Game:
You pick cards from the draw deck and make decisions based on the information given on each card. Document your decisions on your Game Sheet and move your Player Piece on the Board.
Some of the Choices You Will Make:
- Is it the right time to buy a car?
- How will I pay for college?
- Should I start a part time business?
- Should I pay for those concert tickets with cash or use my credit card?
- How will I give back to my community?
How to keep Score:
While the Board tracks your Thrive Score, the Game Sheet shows the true impact of your choices.
On the Game Sheet you will:
- Track the money you make (INcome) and the money you spend (EXpenses).
- List your new businesses and investments.
- Watch your savings grow.
- Monitor your credit card balance.
- See the full cost of car ownership.
- Follow your college finances.
