I found the most AWESOME booking game for my Thirty-One home parties! I’m going to call it the Matchbox Dice Booking Game, cause I like to make up words. LOL!
It was so easy and so fun for the guests! I saw a blog post from Deb Bixler that sparked the idea, so I knew I had to make it my own! Watch this video to learn more and then find major details below on how to make your own, what prizes go in the boxes, etc.
So here is what it all looks like
(now there’s a #1 box in that picture. You won’t need a #1 box)
1. fiesta bowl or vegetable tray…whatever that thing is called 🙂
2. Matchboxes (I found mine at Hobby Lobby. They were made by Paper Studio)
3. Large colorful dice (or regular dice if you want to be that guy. Just kidding! Regular dice are fine!)
4. Some slips of paper to insert your prizes into the boxes. I used cardstock and made sure they fit in there pretty tight so they would stay in the bottom.
It is VERY important that you use these exact #’s for the prize boxes. Someone out there has done the statistics of how many times a # was likely to be rolled. So, for instance, the #2 was the least rolled #. So you’re going to want to put your Gran Prize in that box!
#2- Grand Prize
#3 and #4- Prizes
#’s 5-9 are Book a Show
#’s 10-12 are prizes
What do you give away as the prizes?:
~$5 off your order
~free customer special (only if it’s cheap)
~Pick a prize (have a prize box with lots of little goodies from your company-key fobs, nail files, things from dollar bins at Target. etc)
What happens if two people get the same number?:
Nothing! When someone rolls the dice and gets their number, they open the box and see what their prize is. And then they put the box back on the tray! So it’s ok if someone rolls the dice and gets the same number.
How does this compare to my purse booking game?:
I will use them BOTH! They are both equally effective when it comes to booking. However, I like this matchbook dice booking game because I don’t have to switch out the prizes or anything. They just stay in the box. It’s cheap, but it’s adorable and kind of irresistible, so they can’t stand not to play!
The biggest time consumption I had with the purse game is that I had to change out the slips in them. And with 20 purses, it is sometimes a chore. Effective, but a chore.
So…final conclusion is that I will alternate this Matchbox Dice Booking Game AND the purse booking game. When I have a party with a ton of repeat guests, I’ll be able to switch it up a little!
And if you haven’t tried the Purse Booking Game, you’ll want to check that out too:
