Description

Drew Carey & PlinkoPlinko is a classic game taken from the popular game show called “The Price is Right”.  It began with Bob Barker in 1983 and then  Drew Carey took over the show 30 years later.  Over the years, people started making their own Plinko boards to have at Fundraisers.  Growing up, the Owner of Jack of all Spades named Carrie used to religiously race home to watch The Price is Right at 11am each day, and Plinko was always her favourite game to see.  Then fast forward to 2007 when Carrie attended her friend’s Stag & Doe, and her favourite game that they had there was the Plinko.  It was this experience that inspired her to start her own business and you could say that Plinko started it all!  She loved it because of how simple it was, and that no skill was required.  You dropped a chip and watched it trickle down – that was it!  She also loved that every spot could be a winner, so even when she technically lost and did not win something big, she still got a raffle ticket.  This is a crowd pleaser that is fantastic at Stag & Doe’s, other Fundraisers, kids parties, and even at Casino Nights!

Our Regular Plinko is our smallest Plinko, but it still a very popular choice. Even though it is our shortest and cheapest, people still love him because there are 14 spots on the bottom, which is double the amount of spots as our other Plinko’s!

  • Win 1 Grand Prize Ticket (tape it to the board)
  • Win an Arm’s Length of Raffle Tickets
  • Win 1 Penny Sale Ticket Sheet
  • Win a Drink Ticket (tape an actual drink ticket to the particular spot)
  • You Lose (although it is fun for every spot to be a winner – your choice)
  • Go to Penalty Box for 1 Minute
  • Free Putt at Golf
  • Get Another Plinko Chip
  • Win a Shot or Jello Shooter

Plinko - using PrizesThe good news for you, is that we provide you with a template to print out, based on the size of Plinko you chose.  Once you order the Plinko and pay for your order, you will see the template is emailed to you to download.  So just print that out, and eventually tape it to the bottom of the board.  Customize it however you want, or use our suggestions sent in the email.  It is just a simple spreadsheet but it is the exact dimensions of the bottom of your board.

How to Play using Point Value System

An alternative way to run the Plinko is to label the spots a point value, such as what you see below. Then after people drop 1, 2, or 3 chips, they can add up their scores. You could say that if you got 20 points, you would win a Free Drink for example – look above for some more examples of prizes to be won. The reason we labeled two spots 0 points below, is to give the illusion that the middle spot is the hardest to get. That is what they do on the Price is Right!  Note that all spots are equally easy/hard to get, so there is no real strategy:

  • 5 points
  • 10 points
  • 0 points
  • 50 points
  • 0 points
  • 10 points
  • 5 points

How to PROFIT with This Game

We have some excellent tips on how to profit with this game, if you are using it at a Fundraiser. We suggest that you charge your guests $2 for one chip or $5 for 3 chips.  You can either label the bottom with prizes to win, or you can make each spot a point value (see 2 tabs above this one). You can up the price a bit if you have an amazing gift to give away. All of the spots are equally hard to get so do not make the mistake of making the middle spot “win $100”! On the Price Is Right, they make both spots on either side of the middle spot Zero points, which makes people believe that the middle is the hardest to get. We send you a template for labeling the bottom of the board when you book.

How Heavy is this to Transport

A common question is to ask how heavy a product is, so that people know how many others they may need to bring to help lift this into their vehicle.  With this product, one person is all you need!  It is fairly light weight so you should be fine.

Plinko's History - Price is Right

CBS said,

“The game’s name is simpler than you might think. When Bob Barker unveiled the newest addition to The Price Is Right family on Jan. 3, 1983, he also revealed how they came up with the name. They called the game Plinko, he said, because of the “plink, plink, plink” noises the chips make as they bounce from peg to peg.”
