Pay Day or Payday

  Pay Day has been around awhile, and the version we have is from 1975. It's another garage sale find, a game I remember from when I was a kid.
  My kids enjoy the game because it's the right level of difficulty, not too hard or simple. The board looks like a calendar month, and the game takes you through life events until the last day of the month, pay day. Players decide how many months to play, and whoever has the most money at the end wins.
  It's fun to get postcards and bills in the mail, to buy antiques with the hopes to resell them, and otherwise feel like you're managing your money. The graphics on the board, cards and money are bright and fun.
  Pay Day does have a few rules to read through. It might be best to read them before you intend to sit down and play. The game gives kids practice at counting money, adding and subtracting. There isn't a lot of challenge for logic and decision-making.
  For ages 8 to adult, 2-4 players. Cost: About $12. (I think the game is supposed to be spelled as two words, but amazon spells it as one.)

Our rating: 3 out of 5 stars
