Ice-Breaker Bingo Card Maker


In both educational and business environments, getting to know colleagues is important step towards working together more successfully. Thus, whether it be students meeting for the first time at the start of a school year, or business colleagues meeting up for the first-time at a seminar or workshop, it is often helpful for the teacher or organizer to find an enjoyable activity to help facilitate introductions. One particular activity that is worth considering, is playing the game of ice-breaker bingo.

There are quite a few different possible variants to the rules of ice-breaker bingo, but fundamentally they are all based on modified versions of the classic game of bingo. The fact there are so many different variations of the game is actually an advantage - the teacher or event organizer can select the most appropriate variant of the game for the age, confidence-level and English-language skills of the participants.
  • In all versions of the game, each player is given their own bingo card. The objective of the game is to be the first player to achieve a line of five marked off items on your card, whether that line is horizontal, vertical or diagonal.

  • In the simpler versions of the game, the bingo cards are printed with the names of the members of the group, one name per square. The teacher (or organizer) goes round the group, asking one person at a time to stand up, tell the others a little bit about themselves, and finish by saying their name. As the names are called out, players mark corresponding squares off their cards, and when a player achieves a winning line he shouts "Bingo!". However, a bingo only counts if the player claiming it can identify those players whose names form the winning line on his bingo card.

  • In another, slightly more complex, version of the game, the bingo cards are printed with descriptions, hobbies, or activities instead of names (for example, "owns a dog", "can play guitar", "is a vegetarian"). The players then circulate among themselves introducing themselves to other players, and trying to find people who match these descriptions. If they find a match, that player writes their name in the appropriate square on their bingo card. However there is a catch: Each name can only be used once per bingo card - so this encourages players to circulate and meet as many people as possible so as to fill their cards.
Ice-breaker bingo is easy to play and not expensive, so why not give it a try? The key thing that you will need of course is bingo cards printed with names or descriptions. The best way to get these: make them yourself. That might sound a lot of work, but actually it's dead easy - all you have to do is download some bingo card maker software, and then you can print the bingo cards with ease from your PC.
