Games


Tithing- A simple game to help reinforce tithing to young children. Each player is given 5 tokens (play money, poker chips, milk caps, etc.) to represent their tithing (money that they have put aside to give to the Church). Put one small basket on the table to put the donations in. Players take turns rolling the die and moving their marker along the board. When a player lands on a space that has a basket on it, they pick up a Game Card and read it out loud (if they cannot read it, someone else can read it for them). On each Game Card is what the Church will use the money for that you donate (to help pay for the Church expenses and contributions for the community and around the world). The player then puts their donation (1 token) into the basket and their turn is over. The first player to donate all their tithing money wins.

Christianopoloy- The object of the game is to learn the responsibility of good financial stewardship; making the right decisions about the money we have and managing it wisely. This includes being able to pay necessary bills at home, putting aside for the things you want, and taking care of your family. Not only do you have bills to pay, mortgages, insurance, etc. you must pay taxes, make donations and do tithing as well.

Tithing: How much do you tithe?- Players move around the board while figuring out how much they should tithe. If you land on the piggy bank that is hungry, you did not put God first and spent all your money. You did not leave any money to do tithing and therefore lose your next turn. If you land on Tightwad, all other players say out loud “TIGHTWAD!” because you refuse to give any money so you must change places with the player that is closest to START. Players roll the die and continue to move around the board. The first player to FINISH wins.
