I played this game for the first time last night. What can say, it was awesome! My friends started playing about 3 years ago, and its helped them think about how to get out of the rat race.
To get out of the "rate race" your passive income needs to exceed your liabilities. The game is played mostly on a ballance sheet. You roll dice and get or lose opportunities. Very cool..
Remember in my long term goals , I stated that I wanted to test my strategy with this game. Because I was learning the game, I didn't quite follow my strategy, however, I think it would have helped me get out of the rat race to minimize by liabilities.
Anyway, I was surprised that my wife enjoyed the game so much. She's kinda of competitive so she enjoyed kicking my butt. ;-) She said, that's the most fun I've done with real estate yet.
If your into real estate, I recommend this game. I checked ebay and you can get decent deals on the game.
So, goals today are:
- Write a letter to the gal who has the big lot to express my interest in purchasing it. I need more details before making her an offer.
- I have another guy who called me that has a big lot. This might be better than the first one.
- I will do a walk through w/ a double wide today. Apparently she's asking a pretty fair price.
