Hi all,
Hi all,
I've come across a game called the Riddle Game (Page #'s need to be updated on this) and I'm thinking I've got the crowd for this game this weekend, but want to be sure, HOW to play this correctly.

One of the ?? is: Pump me up and down, and up and down. When I build up pressure, Im ready to spray! Who am I?? Page #34 (it's really on page #22)

But I'm wondering, how would you do this game, print out the ?? and pass them around, ask everyone as a group?? Help!!

Do I print out the cards and pass them around and ask for correct answers from answer cards??

Do I just read the ?? and show the correct responses??

Help!!

Also, when do you normally play this game??

Thanks,
Lisa

The pump me up and down one is the Kitchen Spritzer...

I printed out the sheets and just deleted the page numbers so that I didn't have to mess with changing the cards as the catalogs change. I pass these cards out with my lapboards and have the guests read them with their intros...I have had some pretty wild crowds and these really put them in a great mood. At the last one I did the ladies found the "These come in 3, 5 and 8 inches...which size do you prefer?" really funny and actually gave all of the knives adult film star names :eek: :D , it was great fun!

Andrea ??

So do they also have the answers on the cards you hand out, or do they have to guess what they are??

Just curious.

I have the answers on the back and the person who reads the question gives the answer if no one guesses it. I give tickets to the people who get the answer correct and then we draw for a prize.

I don't think I would never play this game in front of a show. Have some morals. This is way out of hand.

I disagree...just because one plays this game does not mean that they do not have morals, I think that I am one of the most morally sound people that I know. You really have to know your crowd to play this game, I will say that my average sale goes from $60 to $80 when I do this game at shows, it spotlights a lot of products and gets discussions going on those products.

If you don't feel comfortable playing then don't do it...and don't criticize or judge people just because they do.

Andrea- you are so right!! It's all about having fun and letting loose for a night! I would ask the host if she's comfortable with it first.
Mom4kanda don't be such a prude! All I can say is imagine what a little alcohol will do! I'm definetly doing this at my next show!

That's so true! I play this game at almost every show I do and my sales do go up because it does get the guests talking about it. My show average has gone up to $750 and I'm not sure if it's because of the game but people have a lot of fun at the shows. If people are drinking and having a night out, what's wrong with that?

I also have morals and I would never pass judgement on someone because they played this game. I think what Andrea said summed it up "You really have to know your crowd when you play this game". I ALWAYS ask the host if I can play this game and they will either tell me yes or no depending on if she thinks her friends can handle it.

Man, that really just left a bad taste in my mouth.:(

I agree, with the right crowd, this would be an awesome game to play. I think it would lighten things up. I played Queen of the Shoppers and everyone loved it.. that would've been a crowd I could definitely do this game with.

Question: do you have them yell out the item? b/c w/ the page # on it, its pretty easy to do. I would get rid of the page #s maybe.

I'm planning on playing this tonight. I'm going to read the riddles and have them yell the answer and page #. The first one to do so will get a candy kiss. The one with the most kisses at the end will win a Season's Best. I hope it goes well. :)

OMG!!! I about fell out of my seat and have tears in my eyes from trying to keep quiet (hubby and baby sleeping), I would have LOVED to have seen this game before my last show. OK, now I know what what I am going to do the next time my friend has a show. Obviously someone has never been to a 'girl' party as we tell the men we're going to, lol. But some people just don't believe people should talk that way. There is no way I would be able to read them off, I would have to pass them out to everyone and make them read them off, then tell the answers at the end, I would be laughing too hard to talk.

OMG! I just checked back to this thread! What a funny game! I definately have a couple different crowds that would be a hoot playing this:D It would be fun for a repeat crowd, those that have been to several shows. I definately like the idea of the guests reading the clues, I would probably not be able to read them & keep a straight face! I also liked the idea of giving hersheys kisses, then a prize..Thanks for sharing!

I did this last night at a show, and it was a riot. I read the clues, and then if they were stuck I would give them a page number, but they passed the prize to whoever answered correctly!:)
