Abundance - should I be worried?
So I recently started helping book events in the common space for our neighbourhood, and there's apparently a games night group who comes in there every few weeks. I had been curious about them but hadn't found out their deal until recently. Their head booked a new night for an event and when I asked what kind of games they played, they answered that it's a board game night, but they mostly just play one game: Abundance. They described it as "a tool to learn about investing with integrity and building relationships", and also mentioned that they sometimes offer the option to purchase tickets to other events (that take place elsewhere) at the cost of something like $100 a ticket.
I had never heard of this game, but the way he described the game nights set off a red flag or two, particularly the one that's gone off ever since a friend once managed to trick me into going to a Quixtar/Amway meeting when I was younger. I'm not sure what to make of this game, though, because information seems scarce. Google mostly just shows me stuff from the game maker's website and other meetups of players; there's not much info on BoardGameGeek
other than some eyebrow-raising descriptions about spirituality and getting rich.
The only substantial lead I have is that it is apparently linked to Cashflow 101, which I have also never heard of. In hindsight, I now remember that the game night organizer said they also sometimes play this game. Judging from the comments and reviews on that game, I can see that it's polarizing, so it's hard for me as an outsider to accurately judge that one either.
So does anyone know anything about either game? Should be worried that there's some kind of scam being run out of our common space? Or are they just harmless folks and I'm worrying over nothing? The people running it live here and seem nice, and their players seem happy, but the same could be said about Amway people so... ???
