The Settlers of Catan – Personal Finance and More

In order to produce the podcast and keep content up free for you, I work with partners so this post may contain affiliate links. Please read my full disclosure for more info.

My husband and I enjoy playing video games.

We've tried to manage our time and money spent on them and we've been pretty happy with what we have.

I haven't, however, mentioned that we also enjoy board and card games with friends. Both of us grew up in families that enjoy friendly competition.

Recently we've gotten back into games and we wanted to try something new besides our regular stand-bys of Scrabble, Cranium, and Rook.

I heard about Settlers of Catan and tried the game out first on my tablet.

Loving it, I ordered the basic set from Amazon for game nights. For those who haven't tried, I highly recommend it.

The game is designed to have you interact with other players to trade resources.

Next paycheck I'm ordering the expansion so we can have 5-6 players with the game. 

So imagine my surprise when I saw On Target Coach's post this week about 10 Reasons Why Personal Finances Are Like The Settlers of Catan.

It's not only fun, but there are also some really good points on how you can improve your finances.
