Who's Got the Quarter?
Sent in by: Julia of MA

Hands down the coolest game ever.

To play this game, you'll need a quarter, a table and some pals.

Players split into two teams, Team 1 and Team 2.

Teams stand on opposite sides of the table.

Team 1 starts off with the quarter. They pass the quarter to each other under the table.

Team 2 then has to guess which member of Team 1 is holding the coin.

When they think they know, they say "Hands Up," and Team 1 balls their hands into fists and takes them out from under the table.

Team 2 says, "Hands down. One, two, three," and Team 1 has to put their hands flat down on the table at the same time, being careful not to let Team 2 hear the coin drop!

Now, Team 2 has to guess which member of Team 1 has the coin.

If they guess correctly, they get the coin and a turn at hiding it.

If they guess wrong, Team 1 keeps the coin. You can play as many rounds as you'd like!
