If you want home party plan game ideas then you should read all 200+ comments below! The comment section includes games for all personalities and business goals.

Home Party Plan Games For Your Shows

The most popular topics that I ever get questions or requests about are BOOKINGS and home party plan GAMES.

It seems like every direct selling – home party plan consultant wants more bookings and party game ideas!

Read the full article to learn how to get your FREE electronic “talking” book of “Powerful Party Plan Games“!

Games Make Shows Fun

Have you ever put together a home party show presentation and wondered how you would create an interactive atmosphere?

Getting people to interact at your shows is important to generate the fun factor. Home party plan games provide the perfect opportunity to get everyone involved. They are fun, interesting and can help to sell a product very quickly.

If everyone is having fun at your party, chances are they won’t be so concerned with time which will give you the chance to recruit business consultants as well.

Icebreaker games are a great way for everyone to get to know one another. They can also provide valuable information in a light-hearted manner. You will host some parties where most of your guests will already be acquainted with one another. Other parties, however, will be full of people who have never met.

The games e-book has a wide variety of games, but for the purposes of this article, we’ll assume that everyone at the party isn’t related to or friends with one another.

Name and Number” Home Party Plan Game

One great icebreaker game is called “Name and Number”.

Upon arriving at the party, each guest is given an index card containing his or her name on one side and a number on the other.

Guests are then required to wear the card with the name side showing.

This will introduce everyone to one another. Guests are encouraged to make these introductions personally so that everyone will become acquainted with the various names.

After a while, you can then request that your guests turn their cards over thus showing only the number.

Everyone will then receive a piece of paper containing all the numbers. The object of the game is to fill in as many names as can be remembered beside the corresponding number.

“I hate”” Home Show Game

Another fun home show game is called “I Hate”.

In this one, guests write down the chore they hate the most and accompany it with two reasons.

Everyone is then required to read their statements, but there is a twist.

The chore is to be replaced verbally by a word that is completely out of context. For example, the statement could actually read “I hate cooking. It takes too long and I always burn something in the process”.

When read aloud, the word “cooking” could then be replaced with another to make the entire statement humorous.

The I hate game can be used with any “I hate” question that is compatible with your business:

  • I hate (this chore) because
  • I hate (cleaning the) because
  • I hate (a TV show) because
  • I hate (my job at) because
  • I hate (running this errand) because
  • I hate (the way this room is decorated) because

You pick the word or words to substitute. So, maybe you decide that the substituted word is sex.

When the guest reads these statements with the substituted word:
“I hate the way the living room is decorated because the green is ugly and the couch is uncomfortable.”

“I hate cooking. It takes too long and I always burn something in the process”.

They become:
“I hate sex in the living room because the green is ugly and the couch is uncomfortable.”

“I hate sex. It takes too long and I always burn something in the process”.

This is a fun game that will be enjoyed by the guests and will be certain to break the ice.

Pass the Parcel

You can also choose to utilize party games to showcase what you are selling.

Here, “Pass the Parcel” or a treasure hunt can be a lot of fun. Each person asking the consultant a question in a predetermined topic gets the parcel passed to them.

The winner gets to keep the product if they are holding it when the time is up.

The most often used question topic is “Ask me a question about MyFantasticCompany”.

The game then becomes a tool to share information about the business opportunity and it gives the distributor the ability to determine who has an interest in becoming a consultant.

One word of caution, don’t let this type of game run on too long. You’ll know when it’s time to declare a winner and can then move on to something else.

Direct Sales Games E-Book

There are so many direct sales party games that we have a whole home party games category on the blog!

Come up with some of your own to liven up the party and incorporate them into future presentations.  Make sure they are FUN though…. a boring game will do exactly the opposite of what you are looking for!

    I love the purse game because you never know what people will pull of of their purse that starts with the letter you asked for. Another favorite is the amazing actress game because it gets guests interacting and laughing at the actresses.

    I love the left right game. It’s so fun, guests pay attention so they don’t get bored and they each want to win the prize. Looking forward to the e-book to see all the different games. Thank you Deb!

    The left/right game is the most popular with my party guests or the purse game but another one is the Island Game. You give each person a piece of paper and a pen. They cant (tell them to look up lol) while you tell them to draw an island – then you on the island then put you holding a product (purse in my case). Draw a palm tree etc and who is the most accurate gets a prize – or 1 2 and 3 if a big group. Gives you the opportunity to talk about the business and how you can get free products from incentives as well as trips for sales etc. A different angle. Thanks for all you do Deb! We appreciate you !

    I like to play Stealing Hearts. I have 2 or 3 bags with a small gift hidden inside. I have 2 suits of cards, Hearts and Spades. I give each guest a chance to ask questions about my business and when they do, they receive 1 or 2 cards from the Hearts group. After all cards are distributed I then take the Spades and call off each card 1 at a time, quickly. Guests grab whichever bag is available or steal from a different guest. The last ones hold the bags are the winners. I like this because it helps zero in on potential recruits.

    I like to play the left right game with two gifts. I start with the host and the person beside her and I read a poem with the words left right in it. When it finishes, the one with the gift in her hands wins it!

    I am a new consultant and I haven’t had my first party yet. This book sounds so interesting and I will give me a way to break the ice not only for the guests, but for myself also. Thank you for writing a book of frames and sharing it with all of us.

    I love the “I hate” game, what a hilarious idea!

    I usually play the “right-left” game as it gets everyone laughing and relaxed. I wrap the gift/prize in nice paper which gets them guessing about what it could be.

    I LOVE this article and question!

    I have done the left/right game but the most fun we have had is when we do a scavenger hunt at my new Idea Book Open House. I sell scrapbooking/crafting products.

    What I do is create projects or have the product around the room. Each participant has a piece of paper that sends them on a more “traditional” scavenger hunt through our Idea Book (catalog) BUT they get extra tickets when they find either the product they have seen in the room OR the products used to create the projects they see. They call me over and shod me the page to get the extra tickets. It’s hilarious to watch grown women hiding their pages from the other guests to show me what they found. TONS of fun!

    I usually use the LEFT/RIGHT and have used Book to Look envelopes before. I like the use of the Balloons – Festive and Fun. Thanks to all who have given me more ideas.

    My first party I played the left right game. I was so nervous, I actually read “GASP” out loud rather than enacting it…lol I’m so glad it was a good friend that was hosting :) Thank you so much for the offer of a free e-book! Can’t wait to get it and use it!

    I’m pretty new and only had one party so far, and I didn’t know about any of these games or what to do so I didn’t get any bookings. I am so glad I found this sight I will be booking at my next. I think I will try the balloon game first! Thanks for the ideas – oh, and I would still love to get the game e book if I can please!

    I do chocolate tasting & pairing parties. When guests introduce themselves they have to do so in terms of chocolate… for example, what kind of chocolate confection best describes who they are.

    LOTS of great ideas here… That is a good one, Stephanie!

    Hope you all read down through the comments because there are so many games here that you have got to be able to find one that meets your needs.

    I have gone onto print bingo.com and created my own bingo cards.

    Each square has a word or phrase that I specifically chose to reflect my business. Either the founders name, a product we sell, a hostess reward, etc…as I mention each item, the guest gets to mark off their board. The first one with a BINGO gets a prize.

    I took pictures of 12 items from catalog (only like the corner of a wallet, just part of the item) and made into 4×6 collage photo. Those 12 items are hidden in plain site in the room where party takes place. Each guest is given the photo and asked to look around for the items and write down #1 to #12 where they are and for tie breakers they would need items correct name from catalog. The guest get up and mingle and try helping each other out.

    I love the “Have you Ever” game. You ask a series of questions and if guest says yes they move one seat to the left.

    They may need to sit on someone’s lap. Could be a huge pile up. The more the better. Winner is first back to their own seat.

    I am pretty new to the whole party plan gig and never quite know what to do. I’ve really only tried the 3 mystery boxes. Which can be hit or miss. As I’ve got to remember to keep mentioning them throughout the party.

    That is a good idea, Melissa – When you work out the details do a short write up if you want to share it and we can put up a guest blog post.

    Many great ideas here. I haven’t done this yet but am going to do a Pictionary type game and draw an item from the catalog. Guests will look through the catalog to identify it. First person to get it draws next item and so on. Give fake $ equal to price and then explain how they can get it for free.

    I usually play the right left game, the purse game, or if you are interviewing for my job what are some of the questions you would have. As they ask questions I give them tickets at the end I call the winner.

    257
    Shared by: Claire:

    I play a game that has a list of random questions, such as “who has green eyes”.

    If any of the guest have green eyes they move one seat to the right but the person sitting there can’t move until they can answer true to a question so you end up having people stack up on top of each other. the object of the game is to be the first to get back to your original seat.

    I play the RIGHT LEFT game at my parties. As I read a story about my company with a lot of right and left words in it. the prize is passed either right or left when the word is used. the one with the prize in their hand when the story is finished wins.

    The Ummm Game (Icebreaker)…Going around the room, each guest talks continously for 30 seconds about themselves and how they feel about jewelry (why they love it; what kind they like; what they don’t like, etc), but they can’t say “ummm”. If they do, they’re disqualified. The winner gets a prize (usually a piece of preselected jewelry). In case of a tie,they repeat for 45 seconds for a winner. Guests love it and get really competitive…the more excited they get the harder it is to stay focused and talk without saying “ummm”.

    The Balloon Game

    As guests enter the party, give them each a balloon. Inside each balloon is a folded note. Tell them that this is their balloon for the night and to hold onto it. As the show goes on, they’ll be curious about this balloon and what’s inside.

    At the end of your presentation, tell them that inside each balloon is a bonus/prize. If they book a party, they can pop the balloon to reveal their prize. It can be anything from free shipping, a small item, gift certificate to a local shop or a large item that will be given at their show. That’s up to you.

    I love this game. Once your guests hear the first pop, the rest want to pop theirs too. At one of my parties, nobody jumped right in to try it. Finally, a guest told me she wanted to book. I got out my pin and popped it for her. After that, the pops were everywhere. It just takes one to get it going.

    I love this game.

    Everyone gets a set of beads when they come in the door. (Like the Marti Gras).

    I pick a word you CANNOT say during the party. If you say the WORD, whoever catches the WORD wins your beads. Whoever has the most beads at the end wins a prize.

    Example, Baby shower would be Baby. I sell nail wraps. I like to use a common word dealing with the weather. Most that are chatting to new friends will comment about the weather..HOT COLD SNOW DRY..example words.
