The X Game

How To Play

How it Works
The X Game gives you the opportunity to earn tickets and win prizes donated by participating exhibitors as you explore the School Business Solutions Marketplace.

See something you want to win? Each participating exhibitor will have a ticket bag at their booth. Place your ticket (or tickets) in the bag to enter for a chance to win. NOTE: In the spirit of the X Game, attendees will be limited to winning two prizes. If an individual's ticket is pulled more than twice, a new name will be automatically pulled.


How do I get tickets?

Look for the pre-populated tickets in your registration packet. You can get more tickets easily by walking around the hall and networking with participating vendors. All participating vendors will have extra blank tickets to give away. The only difference is you will need to fill out the required information on the back of the ticket.

Can business cards be used as tickets?

BUSINESS CARDS CANNOT BE USED AS TICKETS — Attendees are welcome to staple their business card to a ticket, but a business card alone will not be considered as a ticket and will discarded.

How do I know if I won?

Be at the Illinois ASBO booth between 1:45pm-2:30pm to see if your ticket is drawn. Following the drawing, winners will be posted in the conference attendee app.

How do I pick up my prize?

All prizes will be available for pick up at the Illinois ASBO booth on Thursday. Please collect your winning prize by when the Marketplace closes or we cannot guarantee that you will receive it.

Do I have to be present to win?

Yes, please be present to win the item. If your winning ticket is chosen, it is your responsibility to pick up your item from the exhibitor.

Why is there a limit to how many prizes I can win?

To keep the within the spirit of the game, it is important to allow all attendees a chance to win a prize, no matter how many tickets are submitted. You can still submit all of your tickets for one prize to increase your chances of winning that prize.

Be Part of the Game!

Attendees can earn additional game tickets on Wednesday and Thursday by networking with exhibitors and enter them to win at participating booths. NOTE: Exhibitors cannot win any prizes attached to the X Game. Limit one donation per organization/company.
