In-class games have been implemented into economic courses to improve student engagement. With the worldwide spread of COVID-19, more classes have been converted online. Compared to traditional in-class teaching, online teaching has limited face-to-face interaction, making in-class games impossible. This paper presents four simple online games targeting different topics in economic courses. These games are free and easy to conduct using the basic functions in widely used eLearning platforms, including Webex and Zoom. No installations or registrations are required. These games reduce disadvantages of online learning and maximize student engagement. More importantly, they facilitate an understanding and appreciation of the basic economic concepts. This paper points to methods for more effective online teaching as the pandemic continues.
