#10. Human Bingo


Background:
My friend Shiqi reminded me of this game when she informed me that her cell group played it during a Christmas party they had.

To be prepared before the game:
The required number of Human Bingo sheets. I find using Microsoft Excel an excellent and simple way of making it. Use the above as an example (click image to enlarge), you can copy it or modify accordingly.

Instructions:
1. The Game Master gives out the Human Bingo sheets, one sheet per person and distributes pens as well.

2. Each person will have to find a person who fulfills the criteria stated in a single box and get the person to write his/her name within the box.

3. The same person cannot write his/her name twice per sheet.

4. The person who has got 5 rows first wins and shouts "Bingo!" He/She wins.

Variations:
1. If there are too few people, instead of 5 rows to win, 3 are enough.

Suitable for:
1. Anyone, everyone.

2. Especially if there are a lot of strangers together who don't know each other's names.

3. You want an interactive ice-breaker where everyone gets to participate.

Length of Game:
10 - 15 minutes is sufficient for a lot of fun. Extend/Shorten as appropriate.

Complexity level:
Easy.

Suitable number of people:
Preferably a large group of 15 people and above.

Enjoy!
