    Question Board Games about Money

    There are so many board games that teach about money, it's hard to choose which one to buy. Do you have any favorites? Thanks!

    We have Money Bags - http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Resou...4473600&sr=8-1 - and the kids have a lot of fun with it. It really helped ds learn coin values and it's helping with adding and making change. DD can play with a bit of help.

    Our kids liked the play money you can buy just about anywhere--bills and coins. They would set up a "store" or "restaurant" and charge for items, make change, etc.

    We usually have a Monopoly game going on our dining room table. Plus the girls like to turn their play kitchen into a grocery store with everything priced and then they go shopping with real money.

    The Game of Life is popular here, and I like it because it ties in the concepts of work, college, family, unexpected expenses, insurance, etc. Gets the idea in their heads that money isn't free.
