Good board games to teach new people about idea of trading?

  1. So I want to figure out a way to explain to my in-laws and my parents what my husband, who is a trader, does and how he makes money. I looked into a few board games since both our families play these. I looked at Stock Rush! A Week of Trading on Wall Street and other such games. Can anyone recommend any that are better than others, focus more on trading, experiences playing these games, etc.?
    Thanks alot.
  2. For most traders, it's a lot like Snakes & Ladders.

    That's a good game. It might not be a perfect fit to explain trading, but it's fun and not a boring old stock market game which many are. Even if you know nothing about trading, you can quickly and easily get into that game. Can get intense if you get some competitive people together.
  4. General Amazon Search

    I did a search on Amazon for Stock Market Games and there's more than I expected. Might pick up a few for myself!
