I've been hired by an amusement park as a games clerk. My job is to draw people over and get them to play games.

Are there any good resources on lines and such to do a great job at this?

Any good lines or bits of business to make sure I'm the #1 games clerk in the history of the place?

Thanks for any guidance.

I don't know if there are resources for lines.
I'm guessing you'll pick them up via osmosis from just being there.

There seems to be three types of game carnies:
1)The rhymer. Ad nauseum spew out rhymes at a loud volume. It doesn't matter if what you say makes sense as long as it rhymes. "Any prize any size, winner winner chicken dinner, etc..."
2)The tricker. Yell something at everyone who walks by, trying to fool them to stop and play. "you dropped something" "wanna play, I'll let you play free" "take a practice run" etc...
3)The good one. The good game carnies seem to be able to mostly avoid the first 2 themes, and simply talk people into playing for high prizes.

What game will you be working?

Good luck.

Thanks bubbles. I'm not 100% sure on the game yet. Will still be a couple of weeks before they finish onboarding/training.

" Cheap and easy, fast and fun" doesn't mean anything, fits everything.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
