Heads or Tails Knockout

Everyone stands up.

Appoint a caller who needs a coin.

The caller now says, "Hands up if you think it will be a head".
The caller now tosses the coin.

Everyone who guessed correctly can sit down.
You continue this process until just one person is left - and they must take a drink or forfeit.

An alternative is to ask the people who guess incorrectly to sit down, so at the end you one a winner. This person can receive a prize. This is a good game for big gatherings (up to 400 people) and is a good way to get people to wake up if they are getting a little sleepy at a big meeting or presentation.

I'm looking for an alternative to this for our regular meeting. It generates good money for our charity but we are all in need of a change!

I would like the last person to win the coin, not sure if this encourages gambling.

We have used the Heads or Tail Game for the past 3 years at our annual fundraiser with 500+ guests. We sell Glo-bracelets for $10 each which allows the guest to participate. It's fast, fun and the winner receives a flat screen. We sell about 250 tickets. We have had our Live Auctioneer run the game twice, and our emcee (TV anchor) ran it this year. Doesn't really matter who runs it as long as they know how to play the game. Try it - it's a good lead into the Live Auction Event

has anyone played with an option to buy back in? If you lose and have to sit down, you can pay for another chance?

Try the Sit Down Raffle.

Each person presnt has a raffle ticket, your host then draws raffle tickets from a bucket. If your number is read out, you sit down, last one standing is the winner.

Great fund raiser, say £1 to enter, winner receives half the pot, other half to the organisation.

Used it many times with great success, the winner often donates their winning back to the organisation funds too!

I play this at my quiz nights. £1 per person to enter, hands on their heads for heads, hands on their bums for tales.....

Last man standing wins the kitty

Excellent idea for a convention -- anyone have more like this? Wish there was a whole catagory for games suitable for large business meetings....

This can be easily changed to eliminate the drinking part to make it suitable for large business meetings. Our yearly convention will enjoy this one.

Great simple game for a very large group at seminars or conventions. Expect we will be able to use this one often!

It is difficult to find games that are suitable for use in a large convention or banquet setting. This one is PERFECT!!! And it allows for a prize to be given to the winner. Thanks much from Colorado!!!
