The Cost of Living Board Game.

A printable board game that explores the hardships faced by people living in poverty.

The purpose of this game is to show that not all those living in poverty have a choice of how they got there, some people just roll the wrong number on the dice. When faced with difficult situations it can be hard to make choices based on current  life circumstances.

We hope that by playing this game participants can develop more compassion and understanding towards those that are doing it tough and living in poverty. We need to understand the causes of poverty before we can make a real difference to the lives of those living in poverty. This game has been created as an educational tool to help people begin to understand some of the causes and effects of how individuals in society end up in financial hardship leading to poverty and homelessness.
