How to Play “Human Bingo
Print the game cards. On them, write various personal statements ( either random or specific remarks about the participants ).
People must interact with one another and find out which of the statements written on their card match with someone present in the room. To do so, each player will quietly ask whether an affirmation written on their card is accurate for the person they are talking to ( e.g. “Do you like to cook?” ).
When they encounter someone who meets the criteria on their sheet, they must cross it out. Each statement must match another person so a participant must interact with the crowd to cross affirmations out.
When someone fills out the card, he shouts “Bingo!” and steps out of the game. After three Bingo shouts the game stops.
