MONOPOLY Tournament Volunteer

Saturday, October 23rd, 2021 from 9:00am to 2:30pm (ET)


Edna Martin Christian Center is holding a MONOPOLY Tournament. Proceeds from the event will help fund our youth, family, and senior programs. Volunteers receive a gift card, one raffle ticket for door prizes, coffee & doughnuts, snacks, lunch, and a T-shirt.

PPE is encouraged (and provided!) but not required.

This is an officially sanctioned, three-game tournament. All contestants play the first two games. The four players with the highest aggregate scores advance to the final game. Each game is timed and concludes in 90 minutes, with a 30-minute break between rounds. Official tournament games must be played according to the official rules that come with the game.

Volunteer Banker:
In official tournaments, players may not also act as bankers. So we will need one banker per table. To enhance social distancing, attendance is capped at 48 players, so (at a maximum) we will need 12 bankers for each of the first two rounds. Only one volunteer needed for the final game.

Schedule / Time Commitment:
* Please arrive at 9 AM for orientation
* Coffee and doughnuts start at 9:30 AM
* The first round starts at 10 AM sharp.
* Lunch starts at 11:30 AM
* Second round starts at 12:30 PM
(Most volunteer bankers will be finished after the second round)
* Refreshments are available between rounds, and lunch is served after the first round
* The final round starts at 2:30 PM and concludes at 4 PM


Before the game:
* Attend orientation at 9 AM.
* Get some coffee or other refreshments (on the house!)
* Set up Game board.
* Shuffle and set out Chance and Community Chest cards.
* Count out $1,500 in game cash for each player and distribute.
(Two $500s; four $100s; one $50; one $20; two $10ʼs; one $5; and five $1s)
* Set out and display deeds, 32 houses, and 12 hotels in an orderly and obvious way.
* Welcome players, have them greet each other and shake hands.

During the game, act as a banker with responsibilities such as:
* Pay $200 salary when players pass GO.
* Handle all property transactions, including selling, auctioning, mortgaging, and house and hotel building.
* Receive monies from fines, income tax, Chance and Community Chest card fees.
* Act as referee for your table. At orientation, we will review the rules, some of which are not well known, such as:
* No side deals -- a player may not offer a future consideration in lieu of payment.
* Germane deals only -- a player may not negotiate with incentives unrelated to the game.
* No money under Free Parking -- all non-rental fees are paid to the bank.
* No conspiracy -- players may not form partnerships or teams.
* The tournament judge will be on hand if you need help.
* Keep it light and fun! This is a game after all.

After the game:
* Each player should count his / her assets and complete a tally sheet at the end of each game.
* Verify that each player has the assets claimed, including counting the game cash.
* Double-check each sheet for accuracy, sign, and turn in the sheet to the judges table.
* Collect game cash, deeds, tokens, and ready the set for the next game.
