VIDEO: Realism - the investment board game

New family game "encourages kids to get away from their computers".
Publish date:

A board game that teaches the fundamentals of investing - called Realism - has launched.

It's the brainchild of John MacNamara, a retired IT banking manager, with nearly 40 years’ business experience.

MacNamara says it helps players learn the difference between ‘good’ debt and ‘bad’ debt.

He told ToyNews: “It’s a sophisticated game which is easy to play at the basic level with a subtle form of competition, where, unlike other money games, winners don’t succeed at the expense of other players, so the whole family can enjoy the game. 

"It’s a traditional style family board game which I’d like to think will encourage the kids away from their computers, to sit down and play a game as a family."

Realism has also aunched in New Zealand.
