The Dice Game Booking Tool
A week never passes that I do not get asked for information on the dice game.
The dice game is a fun game that targets bookings.
Brenda Smith, Director 9 with Melaleuca, shared her professional-looking version of the Dice Game on the Cash Flow Show Radio a couple years back.
I think Brenda should package and sell this!!
The Dice Game
You do not need to get as fancy as Brenda does, but as she says, the real game look and feel along with the ability to pass it around makes it more effective!
For this game you will need a pair of dice, 11 envelopes with cards numbered 2 – 12, a grand prize of greater value and several goody bags or inexpensive gifts.
The grand prize does not have to be expensive but should represent good value to the winner.
The goody bags or inexpensive gifts can be anything.
A collection of things in your product line, excess inventory or items such as lotion, candles, body wash, recipe or tip cards, etc. work great and can be purchased cheaply from your company or at a discount store.
Recruiting gift bags would be perfect for this.
The envelope numbers are important:
- Envelope #2: the card inside should be labeled Grand Prize
- #3, #4, #10, #11 & #12 labeled Win a Prize
- #5 – #9 labeled Book a Show.
The numbers take into account the probability of each number coming up, with a 2 appearing only 2.78% of the time and numbers 5 – 7 resulting most often!
The Dice Game Works Like This
Tell your guests that you have a great gambling game and the players have a chance to win really nice prizes.
Make sure that you explain the game well and be transparent so that the guests understand that they can choose not to play if they are not willing to host a party.
Each player will roll the dice and will receive the corresponding envelope to the number they rolled. For instance, if they roll a 2 and 4, they will get envelope #6.
Explain the game and the prizes and be clear that if they choose to play, then they must follow through with the envelope they get. So…
- If they get the Grand Prize, they may take the prize home with them.
- If they get Win a Prize, they get to take the goody bag home with them.
- If they get Book A Show, they MUST book a show which helps the hostess and entitles them to receive free products at their own show and a very special gift at their party too.
At this point it is always good to explain the great hostess benefits and all that they will get when they have their show.
Be clear so they don’t feel tricked!
The only rules are that the winner will do what their prize says and that they can choose not to play if they are not willing to have a party.Brenda Smith, Director 9 with Melaleuca
Before anyone opens their envelopes, tell them that anyone who dates their party in advance will get the prize you are showing to them AND they will get what’s in their envelope.
Party Plan Games Must Be Fun
Make sure you get winning hosts to pick a date on the calendar even if it is a tentative date!
Every home party plan consultant wants more bookings. Be sure that your games are FUN because if they are not FUN they will have the opposite effect!
