Dice Booking Game - submitted by Harriette 8/9/2007

Supplies needed:

One pair of dice

11 cards with envelopes numbered 2-12

2- GRAND PRIZE

3,4,5,9,12- WIN A PRIZE

6,7,8,10,11- BOOK A SHOW

Several goodie bags (I put a votive and/or a tealight)


Here’s how to play:

Ask, "Who here likes to gamble? Great because I’ve got a gambling game for you! The game is optional to play, but you will win something for playing every time.
The way the game works is you roll the dice and you get the coordinating envelope for the number you roll." (For example, if they roll a 3 and a 2 they get envelope #5.)
"Inside each envelope is a prize.
In one envelope it says ‘GRAND PRIZE’, which is ________ (hold it up for them to see…if you don’t have the item, show them a picture of it in the catalog.)
Some of the envelopes say ‘WIN A PRIZE’. If you get this envelope, you will get a goodie bag to take home tonight.
The rest of the envelopes have the best prize in them…’BOOK A SHOW’!
Now, the catch is, whatever envelope you get, you have to follow through. So, if you get ‘grand prize’, you have to take home the grand prize. If you get ‘Book a Show’, you have to book a show. And just so you know, having a candle party is so easy. All you do is give me a guest list and I send out the invitations for you. And then you reap all the rewards by getting loads of FREE products! So, do I have any takers?"

Let them roll the dice and take their envelopes, but tell them not to open the envelopes yet.
After everyone has rolled that wants to, tell them, "Okay, I have a deal to make with you. (Hold up trumpet jar)
You can, regardless of what your envelope says, without even looking, go ahead and book a show. If you do so, you will get a free jar candle like this one at your show AND you will still get the prize that is in your envelope. Again, you will be helping _____ out, and earning lots of free stuff for yourself."
Let them decide what to do.
Coax them along by reminding them they have a chance of getting ‘book a show’ in their envelope anyway, and this way they get the jar too! After everyone has decided whether or not to make the deal for the jar, let them open their envelopes.
Give prizes to those that earned them and book the shows with the people that made the deal or got ‘book a show’ in their envelope.
Make sure you book the show THAT NIGHT.
