Our professional group had a wonderful “bingo” game last month, that really helped us all meet each other. Here’s how to set it up:
1. Get each person to write about three phrases that might characterize them. At least one should be obscure, and one very generic. For example, I might list the following for myself:
* Used the computer language ‘spitball’ in graduate school
* Asks lots of questions, and advertises that fact
* Once ran ‘computer assertiveness training’ workshops
2. Put together boards with a grid of 4 x 6 = 16 such phrases. 3. Hand these out.
3. Participants have to talk to each other, finding names to put in each box on their bingo sheet.
