“Customized versions of bingo are widely used in both adult and K-12 education, because the game of bingo is so easily adaptable simply by using bingo cards printed with words or phrases chosen for particular topic. Of course, you need a set of bingo cards with the appropriate items, but these can easily be prepared and printed using a computer with our Bingo Card Printer software”, said Sunil Tanna, director of Answers 2000 Limited.
The Icebreaker bingo game (also known as "diversity bingo") is both a demonstration of what can be achieved using Bingo Card Printer, but is also a useful item in itself. The Icebreaker bingo game includes a set of 8 bingo cards, each containing a different arrangement and selection of icebreaking items. Also included is a ready-to-use call sheet, which can be useful for some variations of the game. Everything in the Icebreaker bingo game set is provided in PDF format, and can be downloaded, printed, and used, free of charge.
The way we would suggest playing icebreaker bingo is:-
1. Each player is given one of the icebreaker bingo cards.
2. The players are told to circulate, and try to find other members of the group who match the descriptions on their cards.
3. When they find a person who matches one or more of the descriptions, they get that other member to sign the matching square (or squares - usually limit to 2 signatures per person).
4. The first person to get the winning pattern (a line or five, two intersecting lines of five, etc.) is the winner.
