This is a great upfront/audience game that gets everyone involved but without complete chaos!
Buy play money or print off monopoly money. Print off one page then you can use your church’s printer for the rest.
Give one bill to every person who comes that night, right when they come in. When you’re ready to play, call some people up to the front – suggestion: 3 people for every 100 kids.
On, “Go!” your three volunteers run out in the crowd and grab as much money as possible – the crowd lifts up their monopoly money. Set a time limit. The one who runs back to you with the most money wins.
