Pick Up Quarters
Sent in by: Lydia of Detroit, MI

Put in your two cents, or take out twenty-five!

To set up the game, pick two players, blindfold them, and have them put on rubber gloves.

Put some warm water in two large containers.

Put 10 pennies, nickels and dimes and 5 quarters inside each container.

To play, players pick out the coins one at a time. If players think that they don't have a quarter, they can put a coin back.

After one minute, players see how many coins they have and then add up their score.

Quarters are worth one point, but pennies, nickels, and dimes are each worth negative one point.
