Product: Presto Change-O
Presto Change-O teaches money skills. Included in the game box is a bright and colorful game board, 4 game pieces, $1 & $5 bills, .05, .10, & .25 coins (no pennies) and a dice. The ultimate goal is to accumulate a given amount of money. We found that to take longer than another game involving money and real estate. Although Presto Change-O is designed to accommodate 4 players, an additional 2 players could easily be added.
Themed as a Magic Show (get it? Presto-Change-O), players cruise the board after a roll of the dice, performing the action landed on. Actions are primarily “receive” and “spend” with a bank where players make ONE deposit and earn interest each time the space is landed on or passed. The ever present game downer, lose a turn is also a favorite. But, our favorite space on the board was “lose a tooth” because the Tooth Fairy gives money!
Providing hours (if you have it) of fun, or setting a specified time limit makes learning the concept of making change, adding and subtracting money, changing coins to bills or visa-versa is a winner in our book.
My nephew walked around pretending to talk about the game and asked me to video his review. The sound isn’t the best, but he had a blast. These are his thoughts and words. He would have talked for hours, he loved the game so much.
