How to Profit from Game Rentals


Here are some suggestions on how to run our game rentals, and how to profit from them! Because that is the point of a fundraiser right... to make a profit?! Even if your event is not a fundraiser, you will find our tips on how to run the games very useful. Click on the game you are interested in, or scroll down to see them all.

Beer Pong Sign

This game has evolved from a college game, to a fantastic money making sport. The easiest way to do this, is to charge an entrance fee and all night people will compete and keep playing against the winner(s) of that match. If you have a lot of people who you think will play, then charge $5 per game. This $5 multiplied over and over throughout the night, will equal some big money for both the engaged couple, as well as the winner. At the end of the night, you can announce when the final game will be. Then whoever wins that game, will take home 1/3 of the pot, with the other 2/3 going to the Bride &: Groom. Alternatively, you can record on paper how many games someone wins throughout the night, and the person with the most wins, will win the tournament.

Beer Pong Sign

Each player will receive 1-3 birdies, and after each try, you will total up their score. You are obvioulsy aiming for the red target zone which would be worth the most points. The next best thing is to at least get in the black zone, in which they would receive points still but a little lower. If you guest misses completely, then you can either give them 1 point for trying, or a negative number. After they have taken their turn, add up their points and the person that has the highest points will win something at the end of the night. In the event that there is a tie, have a tie breaker tournament at the end of the night.

Blackjack Sign

Play Blackjack just as you normally would, however the guest(s) of honour wins a percentage of each hand. It is a win-win situation and you are guaranteed to make money. Or another option is to charge $10 for five chips, with each chip representing $2. You may want to write down which each coloured chip equals in value, and you should have both a minimum bet and maximum bet. We recommend a $1 minimum and a $5 maximum. Keep it simple, and you can make a lot of money on this game.

Bra Pong Sign

Give each player 5 balls, which sounds like a lot but it is actually harder than it looks. The point values are already up on the board for you, so just add up the scores that each person gets. We recommend that you give them a chance to also pay for 10 balls vs 5 balls, and give them a deal while doing so. This is just a way to make a tiny bit more money off of your guests because its encouraging them to play longer. Keep score of everyone's points throughout the night, and whoever gets the most points will win a prize!

Bullseye Sign

We suggest that you charge each player $5 for three darts. There is a different point value associated with getting a bullseye, triple, or double. All throughout the night, keep track of whoever attains the highest score and they will win a prize. Or to create suspense, you can invite the top 5 in a tournament to be held later on. We recommend making the plastic suction cup a tiny bit wet (please don't lick it, that is gross lol), and it will stick much better to the sign. This Professional 30" x 48" vinyl and vibrant sign can be hung on the wall with some painters tape, and you will be given a dry erase marker to write in the price that you will be charging for 3 darts, as well as what the winner will receive. Have fun with this one, as people will just keep coming back for more and more tries!




















Car Race Wheel Sign

Try to find 6 players each race, but it is ok if you don't get all 6 car's accounted for. We suggest that you charge each player $5 per race or maybe $8 per race if you bet on 2 cars. If you had 6 players, you could make $30 per race. Keep track of all of the winners throughout the night, and at the end of the night only they are invited to participate in a tournament. Make sure to let everyone know what the prize is so that it will entice them to play! You may want to still offer the "losers" of the race a free raffle ticket as a thank you for playing. It doesn't cost you more than $0.01 so why not put a smile on their face?! This is a highly competitive game and usually people play more than once.

Chip It Sign

We suggest that you charge each player $5 for three balls. Each pouch can be worth a different point value with the highest pouches being the hardest. Tally up their points after 3 balls, and keep track of people's scores throughout the night. See who has the highest score at the end of the night and they will win a big prize.

Crack the Code Sign

This game should be used for the most expensive and appealing prize you have, like a "door prize", ha ha. Normally people put it at the front door, which is nice because you do not have to have a volunteer stand there and sell tickets all night. This game comes with 100 codes, however our customers started telling us that they sold out of 100 labels and wish they had more, and so we offer more! We suggest that if you have under 100 people coming, get 100 labels which comes with the game. If you have more than 100, then consider getting 200 codes (extra $10). If you have more than 200 people coming, then get 300 codes (extra $20), and so on.

The key is to get people to buy more than one code, so make it worth their while! Have a price for purchasing 1 code, but then entice them to spend more by getting 2 codes, or 5 codes, or even 10 codes. If you use our suggestion of 1, 2, 5 and 10 code options, then we suggest that you charge $5, $8, $10, and $15 respectively. This is assuming that your prize is a good one - just think about how much you would be willing to spend if you were attending someone else's party, and go with that price. If you have an unbelievable prize, then consider upping your prices a bit. If at the end of the night you see that the winning code has not been purchased, you can announce this and auction off the remaining codes to ensure you get a winner.

To show you how much you could make with this game, if 100 guest purchased one ticket (100 codes) at $5 each, you could make $500. If 100 guests purchased 2 tickets (200 codes) at $8 each, you could make $800. If 100 guests purchased 5 codes (500 codes) at $10 each, you could make $1000. See the earning potential here? Spending that extra $10 to get an additional 100 codes from us, really pays off for you. But again, ensure that the prize is worthwhile for most of your guests to purchase multiple tickets.

Craps Sign

We suggest that you let everyone know the chip values by colour so that there is no confusion. We also suggest that you have both a minimum and maximum bet to keep everyone in line, perhaps $1 or $2 as a minimum, and $5 as a maximum. Consider having a price that you charge people to start playing, such as $10 or $20 to start. Keep it simple, and you can make a lot of money on this game. If you are not having a Fundraiser but are just entertaining your guests and have our dealers, leave it to our dealers to come up with a plan on how to entertain your guests. Prior to your function, they will contact you and come up with a customized plan for you.

Crown & Anchor Sign

We suggest that you charge a minimum bet of $1 and a maximum of $5. Many of our customers cover 2 of the triple pay-out spots and label them "All bets go to House" or "All bets go to the Bride and Groom". If you booked the wheel with us, the template to do this is in your email. This will help you out financially as there will be more money in your pocket, but please for the love of God... don't cover up all up the triple pay-out spots!! Where is the fun in that for your guests?!! This is a typically a high profit game, which is why they are so prevalent at Stag & Doe's.

Fore Sign

We suggest that you charge each player $5 for three balls. Your guests get three chances of chipping the ball towards the hole (which is pretty hard) but if they miss, they still may get points which encourages them to keep trying! Tally up their points after 3 balls, and keep track of people's scores throughout the night. At the end of the night, see who had the best score and they will win a big prize (perhaps golf related like a free round of golf + cart). As you can see with this sign on the left here, come up with different point values, such as 100 points for the Hole, 20 points for the Green, 5 points for the Fairway, -5 points for the Sand Trap, and -10 points for Water Hazard. Something along those lines.

Golf Putt Challenge Sign

We suggest that you charge each player $3 for one ball or $5 for three balls. Keep track of who is able to get the most hole in one's throughout the night, and if you find that people are getting more than one hole in one each turn, then change the rules to say whoever can get the most hole in one's with 3 balls, win enter a tournament later on that night. Their name can go on a list where they will later play against others who scored the same. This encourages people to stay to see the tournament, as well as to keep trying to get into the tournament. Winner of the tournament may take 50% of all winnings. Everyone loves money! Or perhaps a prize that may be golf or sport related.

Hockey Shootout Sign

We suggest that you charge each player $5 for three pucks, and you asign a point value to each target. If your guest shoots the puck and scores in the middle target, this can equal 100 points as it is the hardest target to get. The top two corners can equal 50 points, and the bottom two targets can equal 25 points, as they are the easiest to achieve. Keep track of your guests' scores throughout the evening, and at the end of the night invite the top 5 people to enter a tournament. The winner of this competition will win tickets to something big, such as tickets to a Hockey Game or something sports related. Consider giving people 5 raffle tickets for trying each time, as remember they may cost you a penny each but it encourages people to keep trying and it rewards their efforts.

Hole in One Sign

We suggest that you charge $2 for one ball, but try to entice people to pay for more than one shot! Perhaps charge $5 for 3 balls, $8 for 5 balls, and $12 for 10 balls. This rental is $65, so if you were able to find 6 people who bought 10 balls, you would have already started to make a profit. Keep track of which people get the most hole-in-one's throughout the night (which is extremely hard!) and they can enter a tournament at the end of the night. This will encourage people to keep trying throughout the night to beat their score or someone else's. Because $12 can be a bit steep for one person to pay, ensure that your prize is a good one - perhaps something golf related or sports related. If your prize is a bit smaller (movie tickets, gift card for a restaurant), then perhaps lower your charge.

Horse Race Wheel Sign

Try to find 6 players each race, but it is ok if you don't get all 6 horse's accounted for. We suggest that you charge each player $5 per race or maybe $8 per race if you bet on 2 cars. If you had 6 players, you could make $30 per race. Keep track of all of the winners throughout the night, and at the end of the night only they are invited to participate in a tournament. Make sure to let everyone know what the prize is so that it will entice them to play! You may want to still offer the "losers" of the race a free raffle ticket as a thank you for playing. It doesn't cost you more than $0.01 so why not put a smile on their face?! This is a highly competitive game and usually people play more than once.

Jack & The Bean Toss Sign

There are already point values on the board, so after 3 bean bags are thrown that you may charge $5 for, count up their points. On this sign to the left here, you will see that you can assign a different prize for each point value achieved. So if they get between 0-75 points, they win 1 free raffle ticket as an example. If they get between 76-150 points, they are entered into a grand prize draw that you may have. And so on... and then if they achieve over 300 points, they may be entered into a tournament that you will hold at the end of the night. Then the winner of that tournament will win something big, something that is worth playing for. Or another way to play it is that only the people who can get 3 bean bags into the same hole will be invited into a tournament.

Jail & Bail Sign

We suggest that you charge $1 per minute, so your guest would pay the Sheriff $5. Most of your guests will probably pay at least $2 or $5 to have someone stay in there for 2 or 5 minutes. If you are lucky, you will have some guests pay up to $20 to have someone in there for 20 minutes! Offer a "Get out of Jail Free Card" that people can pay $5-10 for, so they can avoid the jail on one occasion anyhow. The inmate can bail themselves out by paying double. Definitely implement some rules here such as no drinks allowed, and also exempt certain people from being thrown in jail (bride and groom). You can easily fit 6 people at a time, so your potential income made with this game certaintly adds up quickly.

Jungle Race Wheel Sign

Try to find 6 players each race, but it is ok if you don't get all 6 animals accounted for. We suggest that you charge each player $5 per race or maybe $8 per race if you bet on 2 animals. If you had 6 players, you could make $30 per race. Keep track of all of the winners throughout the night, and at the end of the night only they are invited to participate in a tournament. Make sure to let everyone know what the prize is so that it will entice them to play! You may want to still offer the "losers" of the race a free raffle ticket as a thank you for playing.

Mini Indy Sign

Try to find 6 players each race, but it is ok if you don't get all 6 cars accounted for. We suggest that you charge each player $5 per race or maybe $8 per race if you bet on 2 animals. If you had 6 players, you could make $30 per race. Keep track of all of the winners throughout the night, and at the end of the night only they are invited to participate in a tournament. Make sure to let everyone know what the prize is so that it will entice them to play! You may want to still offer the "losers" of the race a free raffle ticket as a thank you for playing. Many people choose to upgrade to the CAR RACE WHEEL as they find it does bring in more money for you, as it has larger more professional cars, and a wheel instead of dice. Your choice!

Penalty Box Sign

We suggest that you charge $1 per minute, so if your guest wants them in there for 5 minutes, they would pay the Referee $5. Most of your guests will probably pay at least $2 or $5 to have someone stay in there for 2 or 5 minutes. If you are lucky, you will have some guests pay up to $20 to have someone in there for 20 minutes! If they get escorted into the cell, your guest can then bail themselves out or someone else can bail them out by paying double. Definitely implement some rules here, such as no drinks allowed in the penalty box, and also that certain people are exempt from being thrown in there. So perhaps the bride and groom, or whoever you want. You can easily fit 6 people at a time, so your potential income made with this game certaintly adds up quickly.

Plinko Sign

We suggest that you charge your guests $2 for one chip or $5 for 3 chips.
CLICK HERE for some suggestions on how to label the bottom of the Plinko. You can either label the bottom with prizes to win, or you can make each spot a point value. 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. Note that the Large and X-Large have 7 spots in the bottom, and the Regular Plinko has 14. We send you a template for labeling the bottom of the board when you book.

Poker Table Sign

Consider having the guest(s) of honour win a percentage of the pot to guarantee a profit. You may want to write down what each coloured chip equals in value, or you can make all chips the same value. If you do this, then perhaps charge $10 for 25 chips, or something like that. Also consider having both a minimum bet and maximum bet - perhaps a $1 minimum and a $5 maximum bet. Another option is to charge an entry fee of $15 and provide each player with 50 chips. Each Poker Table seats 10 people, so if you had all 10 players pay $15 to play, you would already earn $150. Pick the top five from each table and invite them to the tournament. Your top players must then pay an additional $15 to play, so you will gain an additional $75. So just by having people to sit down, you have made over $200, then add in the percentage of the pot, and you are laughing! At the end of the tournament, the grand prize winner can either win a huge prize, or take home a percentage of the earnings

Punch a Bunch Sign

We recommend charging a different amount for each punch. So perhaps $3, $5, $10, $15 for 1, 2, 3 or 4 punches respectively. This game is on wheels (handy right?!) so from behind you can put in all of the 25 envelopes quickly, and then wheel it back against the wall. Each envelope can have point values, so your guest will have to earn a certain amount of points to be eligible for a prize. Or you can keep track of everyone's scores and the person with the most points at the end of the night wins something. Alternatively, you can have only one of the spots say "grand prize" and the rest are duds, however what happens if the first person that punches wins? A third way to run it, is to punch one hole, and then punch another trying to find its pair, and you can have a wild card in there too.

We suggest that you let everyone know the chip values by colour so that there is no confusion. We also suggest that you have both a minimum and maximum bet to keep everyone in line, perhaps $1 or $2 as a minimum, and $5 as a maximum.

Soak It Up:

There is not a sign for this one, as this is typically done outdoors so there is nowhere to hang the sign! We suggest to charge $3 per bean bag, or 5 bean bags for $10. The target is not huge and typically people do not hit the target on their first attempt, so they will most likely pay again. You will most definitely have a lineup of people, so you can make quite a bit of money off of this game. Especially if your supposed victim is a popular guy/girl, a boss, a groom, etc. VERY entertaining game and great for all ages.
