Increase your Bookings using the Dice Game!

YOU NEED—

  • 1 pair of dice
  • 11 cards (be sure they cannot read the card through the envelope)
  • 11 envelopes (Number them “2” to “12”)
  • Goodie bag(s) with inexpensive items in them
  • 1 Grand Prize

 

Goodie bag prizes should be under a dollar. You can use candy bars, inexpensive samples from the company or little gifts you pick up at the dollar store. Have one “Grand Prize.” This could be a discounted product or something you can get at a bargain. It should have a $20 to $30 perceived value.

 

SET UP—

·        “Grand prize” card is in the envelope marked #2 (The odds of rolling a 2 is the lowest of all the numbers we’re going to use.)

·        “Win a Prize” cards are in envelopes #3, 4, 5, & 12

·        “Book A Show” cards are in envelopes #6, 7, 8, 9, 10, & 11

 

EXPLAIN the “Dice Game” at your shows:
(Dice Game should follow the pretend hostess game or showing the hostess benefits)

“Ok, everyone, it’s time for us to have some fun! My customers always love this game! Denise, will you hold these dice for me?” We’re going to play a really fun game! It’s a game of chance!   (This is important! Putting the dice in their hand makes them more likely to play, and once someone starts, almost everybody plays! Choose someone who is enthusiastic so far in the show.)

 

“This is how it works:

I have 11 envelopes in my hand. Inside each envelope is a card. Some of the cards say, “win a prize,” some say, “book a show,” and one says, “Grand prize!” Tonight the grand prize is … (describe whatever you’ve chosen as a GRAND prize then repeat the sentence above.)

 

If you choose to play, you’ll roll the dice and whatever number you roll, I’ll give you the corresponding envelope!

 

Don’t open it until the end! At the end you’ll open your envelopes together and see what you’ve won, and you’ll all be winners. You’ll either win a prize, or an opportunity to book a show and get everything Kathy, our pretend hostess, had in her arms, or the “grand prize.” Now here’s the rules! If you “win a prize”… you have take the prize. If you win the “grand prize”…you have to take the grand prize.” If you win “book a show”…you have to book a show! So Denise will you start us off?”

 

(You don’t want to say “who wants to play?” You need to say, “So, Denise, will you start us off?” Then after Denise plays, you go to the next person and say, “Stacy, do you want to play,” then after she plays or doesn’t, you ask the next person. Ask every person in the room!

Then after everyone has played, (this is optional), you say, “Don’t open your envelopes yet. I have another chance for you! If you choose to book a show before you open your envelope, you win the grand prize for sure. I’ll bring it to your show. Plus you take home tonight whatever is in your envelope!” Then you go around the room and ask each individual again, “Would you like to pick a date and get the grand prize?”
