Hello Guys and Gals ...

I'm doing a fund raiser for the local Chamber of Commerce next month and I need some ideas for a new "game" to play. Last year I introduced them to the Heads or Tails game and it went over VERY well. They told me today they would like to do that again and if we could do something else they want to do it as well. Unfortunately, my mind is drawing a blank. I've done the Fund an Item, silent auctions, raffles, etc. and I'm looking for something new to try.

Any ideas???

Thanks,
Robert

Phillip, thanks for the reply. I will pass those along.

Any ideas on games controlled by the auctioneer....such as "heads or tails" ?

Robert

Great answers Phillip.

Robert "The table self appointed Auctioneer" or "Last Man Standing" is another good game.

No tables at this one, folks, so gotta do something aside from that.

Tom, I'm not familiar with "Last Man Standing". Can you explain? It sounds kinda like the "heads or tails".

Thanks,
Robert

Hi Robert,

My auctioneer brother and great friend Phillip provided his telephone number. He knows the game - last man standing a.k.a. Self appointed auctioneer. Give him a call. He's a great guy. Phillip and I have known each for years and helped each other out regarding benefit auctions.

All else fails give me a call.

Best regards,

Tom

Almost sounds like a "BOOTCAMP FOR BENEFIT AUCTIONEERS" discussion

Okay, for being a new guy and looking at wanting to have a large focus on benefit / charity. I've never heard of any of these games.
Can I get a general direction of where to find them, rules, etc? (Google?) or where?
Thanks
Jack
