OBJECTIVE OF CHANGE CHAMPION: The objective of Change Champion is to collect more change than any other player. 

NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 3 or More Players 

MATERIALS: Loose Change 

TYPE OF GAME: Pool Party Game 

AUDIENCE: Ages 8 and Up 


Change Champion is a perfect pool game for those that are strong swimmers, as it requires you to go under water a lot. Players must dive under to collect as much change as they can. The catch? The players are only allowed to grab one coin per hand before they have to come back up before they can go back under! 


For setup, simply have someone throw some loose change in one section of the pool. It is recommended to count the change beforehand, that way all of the coins can be accounted for.  


Once all of the change has sunk to the bottom, the game can begin! Players will dive down and grab up to two coins, as they may only get one coin in each hand. They will then come up and place the coins in a location of their choice, creating a pile. They can dive under as many times as they like.  

The game continues in this manner until all of the coins have been collected.  


The game comes to an end when all of the coins have been collected. The players will then tally their coins, adding them up to dollar amounts. The player with the highest dollar amount, wins the game.
