Bingo Game Ideas
Make up BINGO cards for guests.
Each square on the card includes a brief description. (Examples: Visited Florida , Is an
avid water-skier, Has brother and sister, Was born in another country, Lives nearest the
school, Knows how to ski, Didn't see the movie "Titanic," Likes anchovies on
pizza, Was born in the same month as you, Favorite subject in school, Has an ear pierced
more than once, Father's name is "Jim," Read more than one book this winter,
Speaks two languages, Has two Pets...etc.) Guests must walk around the room and get the
signature of someone who fits the specific description in each box. The goal is to be the
first to fill the BINGO card with signatures. To make it harder, have guests fill every
square with a different signature and set a time limit. When a guest has a BINGO (one name
signed per square) give them a small prize.
An alternative: Set this up as a scavenger hunt with a series of
questions, each question with a line beside it. Guests are given a time limit to circle
the room and find someone who has "been there, done that." That
"someone" writes her/his name in the blank space.
Start a new holiday or family tradition and have fun at the same time. Try
Bingo on Christmas Eve or other family gathering. Give small gifts to each winner. Vary
the games to include winners for Diagonal Bingo, Corner Bingo, Vertical or Horizontal
Bingo, or Blackout Bingo. Use a variation and let the kids invent new games. They'll
love it and all the family can get involved.
