There are a lot of mixed opinions about playing games at your Direct Sales Party. Some feel they take up too much time. Others feel they are too cheesy for adults to play.
In my opinion, when done correctly, Party Games can be very beneficial to the success of your party!
The truth is, the more FUN people have at your Home Show, the more likely they are to want to do it again!
Playing just a game or two will get people laughing, having fun, and leave the memory of a fun, relaxed shopping experience with their friends that they will want to do again and again.
Here are my Top Ten Favorite Home Party Plan Games for you to try at your next party!
1. Just A Phone Call Away
At the beginning of your party ask everyone to take out their cell phones and hold them in their hand. You will have yours in your hand as well. Tell them this is the easiest game to win all night! *ha!*
Ask everyone to dial in your number – call it
Give her a little goodie for having the “fastest fingers in the room” HA! THEN – while everyone still has their phone out, ask them to SAVE YOUR NUMBER with your first name and company.
Tell them that they have your number forever now, and if they ever need anything, you are JUST A CALL AWAY – ask them to please put their phones on vibrate or silent to not disrupt the party, and then begin with your Party Presentation.
2. Drop The Shoe
This will get guests talking to each other and your products. As each guest comes in, have each guest leave 1 shoe under their chair and put the other in the middle of the room.
After everyone has arrived tell them to pick a shoe from the middle (not their own) and find the pair. Once they find it, have them find out what their favorite _______ product is and 1 reason why they should book a party.
Once they have done conversing, go around the room and have each person introduce their “shoe friend”. It will sound like this “This is Suzy’s Shoe, her favorite item is ______, and she should book a party because________.
3. Recruiting Rhyme
Give each guest an index card and instruct them to keep their own score as you read this rhyme:
4. Alphabet Game
Write each letter of the alphabet on a 3×5 index card. Hold each card up like a “flash card” and give it to the person who yells out a word having to do with your business (product, opportunity, etc) that starts with the letter you held up!
The person with the most cards at the end of the game wins! (I also give a gift to the person with the least)
5. Crossed Out
As your guests arrive, give every few people a small gift. (For example, you can give every 4th person a gift or give out the gifts however you choose).
As soon as everyone is sitting, tell the group about the “no crossing” rule. If a person holding a gift is caught crossing her legs, then she must relinquish her gift to the person who catches her crossing her legs.
This game should be played for the first half of the party. At the halftime, everyone who has a gift gets to open it. (If a person who already has a gift catches someone with a gift crossing her legs, she can either trade gifts with that person, or choose a person who is “giftless” to give the extra gift to).
6. Thread Intro
Pass a spool of thread around to your guests and tell them to take as much as they want. Tell them you want to get to know them a little.
Tell each guest to talk about themselves as they wrap the thread around their forefinger. When they reach the end they can stop.
Start with your hostess. Go around the room until everyone is introduced.
7. Pass The Prize
Have a wrapped prize ready for this fun game. Hand 1 person the gift and have them follow the instructions as you read them. The person who is holding the prize at the end is the winner! (Similar to the Left-Right Game)
8. Replace Your Husband
Have each guest write down an item in their house they need to repair or replace. Then have them list 5 simple reasons they want to get rid of it.
Now have them cross out the item and place their
Go around the room and have each person read aloud “I want to replace (husband’s name)
9. The Lei Game
This is a great game to play in the warm months or a themed party. Also great if you are offering the Vacation Vouchers for your Hostesses!
As you reward your hostess with a gift for inviting you into her home, also adorn her with 3 lei necklaces.
Announce to the crowds that during your presentation if they want to book a party yell out loud “I wanna PARTY!”
The hostess will give her one of the leis around her neck.
Offer an incentive for the hostess to get 3 bookings and she will also encourage her friends to book a party with you.
10. Party Bingo
Give each guest a blank bingo card and you should have a bag or box filled with cards that have your demo products listed on each one.
As you go through your presentation, have them randomly fill in the names of items you show on their card.
After you have done with your presentation, draw 4 cards from your bag or box and call them out.
For the 5th one say there are 2 free boxes, 1 for booking a party today with me and 1 for becoming a consultant today, please fill those squares in. Continue to draw product cards till someone says BINGO.
