I've had a request from a client that has booked me for a party. At the end they would like a tombola ie. names pulled out of a hat/bag/box to win a prize. But the client would like the tombola to be fixed so 5 specific names are pulled out!

I know the obvious sollution to this would be for me to pull the names out, therefor controlling the sellection. but ideally I would like someone else to pull out the names

My first thoughts are a change/force bag. but this would only be good to force 1 name.

Any comments would be greatly appretiated! I'm sure there is a simple sollution.

p.s. this is not to seem like an effect but rather a fair sellection of names from a hat!!!

Hi, just a few ideas:

1. I disagree with your assertion that a change bag is only good for one selection. Give it some thought Smile

2. Have a stooge pulling the names out and pass them to you. You mis-call them then pass (and switch) the selections to someone else to confirm.

3. Shimmed tickets + PK = 5 "lucky" winners.

4. Maybe you'll get more answers if you post in the "Cons, Swindles and Scams" section? This part of the forum isn't meant for discussion of methods (it does happen though Smile ) - but rather plots/presentation ideas.
