Have you ever thought how much you actually knew about insurance as a kid? 
Of course not! 
But we did at Almeida & Carlson and thought it was worth sharing. 
Here’s a list of a few classic board games that taught us about insurance before we got to middle school!
For our customers' sake, we've all spent many more years learning about insurance so that you don't have to.

Someone is paying for you to be sliced and diced. 
And then there’s the fact that an imposter doctor is doing the poking and prodding. 
Let’s hope he has good coverage!

Your ship sinks. 
Or better yet, you sink your best friend’s ship. 
Now what? 
Do you have the right coverage to get yourself a new boat?

In this classic, you actually could buy insurance, which was always a very confusing part of the game. 
You go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, retire; you know the drill. 
Along the way there’s health insurance, car insurance, pensions, life insurance. 
Sprinkle in some wedding insurance and a schedule for your rings and you've lived a full life!

Don’t Break the Ice
What happens when you fall and break the ice? 
The game is over or in reality you get really hurt and you start to deal with medical benefits and legal liability. 
That part isn’t so much fun.

If the name doesn’t sum it up, you haven’t learned much about insurance. 
Short and sweet – insurance covers you against risks.
We're just not certain we can get you a world domination policy.

Those pesky Community Chest and Chance cards taught us all the fun stuff about bonds maturing so we could collect more money.

Pay Day
Another one of those games where you could buy car and health insurance to protect you against out of pocket expenses.
It was usually worth the extra money to put you ahead at the end of the game.

Which is your favorite?  Did we forget one?
