Bean Counters was a Club Penguin mini-game that could be played by clicking on the java bean bag in the Coffee Shop. In this game, the player had to catch flying bags full of coffee beans coming out of a truck, while avoiding flying objects. The player must have also loaded the bags onto a platform. You could not hold more than five coffee bean bags, as you would be crushed by weight and would lose a life. You could collect more lives as you advance in levels. There were five trucks to unload, therefore, there were five levels. If you finished all of them, you would receive an extra 60 coins added on to the amount of coins that you had already earned.
On November 14, 2010, the game was updated with new music.
There were various flying objects that came out of the truck, referred to as obstacles. Starting from the second level, anvils showed up and always landed near the truck. Starting from the third level, there were fish which always landed near the unloading platform. In the fourth level, flower pots began to fly out and landed always in the middle. The fifth level was similar to the fourth level except it went a bit faster.
- Coffee bag - The player was supposed to catch and load the bags in each level: they will then appear on the counter.
- Extra life - These tokens gave the player one extra life. They only appeared in levels 3 and 5 as a penguin's head on a star-shaped background.
- Anvil - Anvils always landed near the truck.
- Fish - The fish always landed near the unloading platform where you put the coffee bags.
- Flower pot - Flower pots always landed in the middle.
In level 1, the player just had to catch bags at a slow pace, with no obstacles. The player must catch 20 coffee bags. Your score must be 100 in order to proceed to the next level.
In level 2, the player must catch bags while avoiding flying anvils that came out of the truck.
In level 4, the player must catch bags while avoiding flying anvils, fish, and flower pots that came out of the truck.
In level 5, the player must catch bags while avoiding flying anvils, fish, and flower pots that came out of the truck, but faster than the previous levels. An extra life would also appear in some point of this level.
If you held any bags when any truck is unloaded, keep loading them to the platform before the next level starts, and you would earned 50 coins for every bag you unload when you did this. Each obstacle also fell in the same place each time.

If you clicked the bottom edge of the top bean bag and clicked the jellybeans. From there you could choose the difficulty: hard, expert, or extreme. Rather than unloading coffee bags, it was jelly beans you were unloading. The goal of this game was to only unload the colors of jellybeans that were shown on the color wheel. You should get the highlighted colors to the unloading platform. Make sure to grab every bag, but the ones with the wrong hues would be tossed back in the truck.
- There was a cheat to make money when you went to play and clicked the igloo button before the box asking if you want to play popped up, then playing at your igloo. You would keep clicking exit to upload your score. The Club Penguin team has fixed this glitch and you will be removed from the server if you try it.
- If you got an extremely high amount of points (probably only possible to reach at Jellybean Counters extreme/hardest difficulty) there was a chance that the game would glitch and award you one coin.
