Read an Excerpt

WE'RE IN THE MONEY
When money talks, it says baby's name.

When
before/after baby is born

How
Everyone needs a pencil and dollar bill to make this run for the money.  Announce the names that mom has chosen for the different sexes for her little dividend, such as "Heather" if it's a girl and "Robbie" if it's a boy. And spell out the names.

The first money manager to find and circle all the letters in both names on their bill wins the game. There are many letters on the front and back of the bill. The only rule is that letters can be used only once (for example, two different "e's" should be circled to spell Heather). Since time is money, tell everybody to start circling!

Variation/Tips
- While the dollar bill has most letters of the alphabet, it doesn't have all of them. Check beforehand that both names can be found on the bill. (See more about this in the last variation.)
- If the baby's name hasn't been decided on, have people seek out mom and/or dad's names or the names of any other special person in baby's life, such as grandma or grandpa. 
- Another twist on this money madness: players race to be the first person to circle all the letters of their own first and last name on the bill. 

Depending on the series of the bill, the signatures will vary, meaning it's possible to find some letters (such as "J") on one bill and not others.  Suggest to players they might want to empty their pockets or pass the buck to find the bill with the letter they need.

This is the first baby shower I have ever planned and was at a loss for what games to play. I did not want the typical games that women have become bored with, nor did I wish to copy the games from the other showers we have attended. Since this book offers some of the old and newer games, it was easy to come up with games that our guests would not be bored with.
