How does it work?

Each penny equals one point. All paper and silver money equals a negative amount for your team. See rules for different coin and paper money values at right.

The team, unit, or office with the most positive points (or lowest negative points) will be declared the winner! “Sabotage” other departments with silver coins and paper money. No money can be removed from the jar for any reason.

Rules:

  • Each penny equals 1 point. (1¢ = + 1 point).
  • All paper and silver money equal negative points for your team.
  • $1 bill = -100 points      $5 bill = -500 points      $10 bill = -1000 points
  • Nickel = -5 points  Dime= -10 points  Quarter = -25 points
  • You cannot remove money from any jar for any reason.
  • Any rolled coins need to be opened and placed as loose change in the jar to count towards your jar total.
  • The shop/office/team with the most positive points, or lowest negative points will be declared the WINNER!
  • Sabotaging others jars with silver coins and paper money is encouraged!
