Often a game can make a sales party a lot more fun and create a good atmosphere. Its important so explore some of the better games and entertainment methods
HOSTESS TIC TAC TOE
A good way to give your hostess extra incentive before the party. Draw a grid of 3 x 3 squares. Label each square with achievement levels like the samples below
Then for each completed row, give the hostess a gift. Plus a larger gift for an addition completed row, plus a bonus gift or discount if she completes the whole board.
Hostess Tic Tac Toe Board Ideas
– Have your party on the scheduled date
– Have 8 guests in attendance
– Have 4 guests I have never met
– Have 20 names or more on your guest list
– Have outside orders over $160
– One Party Booking confirmed before your party
– Personally invite everyone on your list by phone or in person
– Have orders of $600 or more on the day of your party
– Sign up to be a consultant
– Hostess or Guest Enquire about becoming a consultant
You can adjust the levels to suit.
THE RAFFLE TICKET GAME
Tell all guests that there will be a raffle as they enter and give everyone a raffle ticket. (Extra tickets can be given for those who fill in and return a contact form).
Later point out that they need to ask you questions about your business or hostess plan to get extra tickets and the more questions asked, the more tickets are handed out, and the more tickets a person gets, the more chance of winning and that there will be a bonus question. When the bonus question is asked (“How much does an operator’s display kit cost”), make a big deal out of it and give the guest 10 tickets.
(they MUST raise their hand, and no one can ask more than one question at a time. There must also be someone else between each question)
After all questions are asked, you play a little game where you have 3 gifts, with the first ticket drawn getting to pick first, then next ticket picks one and then the last ticket gets to keep third prize OR swap it for either of the other two (so third ticket drawn might be the best one).
The Raffle and Ticket game allows everyone to learn about your business and have some fun too. Wrap up the game by telling everyone how much you enjoy your job and invite them to take a “More Info” pack if they are interested (have the packs ready right then). After you have wrapped up the party, be sure to speak to anyone who took a packet and/or take their details so you can keep in contact.
THE FREE CARD GAME
An excellent game for keeping your guests attention when you do your speel on the hostess benefits. All you will need is a deck or two of playing cards, and a mystery Gift
Tell the guests at the beginning of your party that whenever you say the word Free, the first person who yells out “Free Card”, will get a card. For added fun, you should give them the card face down, and tell them no looking. If they peek they must give back the cards.
Ensure you mention the word “free” as many times as possible throughout your demonstration. with phrases like:
A Hostess will receive $100 in FREE products when …
All this can be yours, “FREE”, when you….
when you get “FREE” time you can earn this for “FREE”?
Get a “FREE” …… with the purchase of …..
Becoming a Party Plan Operator yourself will give you the “FREE”dom to …..
If you dont know who yells out “Free Card” first, then give a card to all who said it. At the end of the demonstration the highest point scorer wins the prize.
Aces are worth 50 points – J, Q & K are worth 20 points – the other cards are woth face value only.
PASS THE GIFT
After introducing yourself, have your guests sit in a circle. Pass out some gifts or samples. You can either have one larger gift, or a few smaller ones (ideal if you have a large group)
Next tell guests that you’re going to read a story and every time they hear the word “Right” or “Left”, they will pass their gift in that direction.
You can modify this story to suit your own style.

THE TOP POINTS GAME
You will need a piece of paper & pen for each guest.
I wonder who came here from afar,
Give yourself 5 points if you came by car.
Were you on time? Not one minute late?
Punctuality pays so give yourself 8.
Give yourself 5 points if you brought your own pen,
BUT if you left dishes in the sink, then take away 10.
Gadgets are great for simplifying our lives.
If you own a computer then you can add 5.
A watch is worth 6 and each ring gives you 2,
add 10 more points if you are wearing blue.
Count all of your buttons… each gives you 1
Except if they are white and then you get none.
1 point for each year that you have been wed,
But take away 5 if your shoes are red.
Now kids are great, on that we agree
So for each one you have you may now add 3.
Add 12 if you kissed your husband or boyfriend today,
If you kissed both, subtract 20, trouble’s coming your way!
Now we are almost done, but there IS just one more.
So hold on to your horses, don’t total that score.
You’ll get a 50 point bonus, you’ll be a V.I.P
Just by hosting your own (Your Company) party!
Have the guests total their scores. The one with the most points wins a prize. If you have a large group, you may also want to give a prize to the one with the least points too
REPLACE THAT HUSBAND GAME
Give each guest a pen and paper and tell them to list a household item that they would love to get rid of. Then, have them list five reasons why they would get rid of it.
After everyone is done writing, say, “OK. that household item that you have written down, I want you to cross it out and replace it with your husband or boyfriend’s name.” When they in turn read back the sentence they must say: I want to replace (name of husband/boyfriend) because he is………………….. and list their reasons.
It’s a fun game and everyone loves it. The one that has the most outlandish answers wins.
BACK TO BACK GAME
Have each guest get a partner and stand back-to-back (no sisters or mother and daughters as partners). They cannot look at each other. Have them number a piece of paper 1-14, and ask the following questions. If there’s an uneven number of guests, have one stand back-to-back with you and play the game with her.
What color hair does she have?
What basic color is she wearing?
How many rings does she have on?
How many children does she have?
Is she wearing a girdle?
How old is she?
Is she wearing shoes or sandals?
What is her husband’s name?
Is she wearing buttons?
Is she wearing a watch?
Does she have nail polish on?
Does she have earrings on?
What is her favorite television show?
What color are her eyes?
Have them check answers after. The guest with the most correct wins.
THE PECULIAR PARTY PLAN GAME
Give each of the guests a piece of paper and a pen. Read the following poem. Give a prize to the person with the most points, and to the person with the least points!
This is a rather peculiar game
It really does not have a name
It’s simple to play as a game should be
You just do as you’re told, you see
So now if you’ll please give me your attention
We’ll put an end to this suspension
In the end, whoever scores the most
Will receive a prize of which to boast
Now since you’re all fashionable girls
Give yourself 5 if you have any pearls
You may add 3 if your toes peek out
And earrings will give you 2 more to shout
Score yourself 5 if you show any red
Add 6 more for a curl on your head
Now before you think you are going to win
Take away 2 for each safety pin
Give yourself 6 if your pants are tight
Add 1 for a scarf which is just about right
Add 5 more if your shoes are black
And take away 3 for a zipper in back
Now count all your buttons, for each you get 2
And take away 1 for each button that’s blue
Give yourself 5 if your heels are high
And why not take 10 for the green in your eye
10 more points for a rose on your clothes
Take away 5 if you forgot to wear hose
If your husband you kissed today – add 9
If you didn’t subtract 12 – you’re subject to fine
This is the end…there isn’t anymore
Who is the lucky lady with the highest score?
