Most people enjoy the fun and entertainment parties offer. It does not
matter whether it is a birthday party, Christmas party or a reunion, it
is always fun. But, having a party can become a nightmare to the host.
Not only does the host have to keep all the guests happy, he/she should
also introduce everyone and make sure all the guests are comfortable in
each others company.

What the host needs is something to break the ice and get the guests to
mingle and talk to each other. The solution is an icebreaker game, such
as icebreaker bingo. Not only are icebreaker bingo lots of fun, it can
keep guests busy for hours and help the host to introduce all the guests
to each other.

The goal of the icebreaker bingo game is to get guests to ask each other
questions in order to fill their bingo cards. This way guests can speak
to each other and get to know each other without feeling pressured or
uncomfortable. They learn personal details of each other’s lives and will
soon feel they have something in common.

Making icebreaker bingo cards is easy, but do require a bit of time. The
same amount of cards as guests is needed, although it is always a good
idea to prepare a few extra cards in case unexpected guests arrive at the
party. An icebreaker bingo card usually consists out of 25 (5X5) or 36
(9x9) even-sized blocks. Inside every block the host can write short
phrases like “played college football”, “has a pet reptile”, “has been to
Hawaii”, “loves reading” and “has a tattoo”. Another option is to search
for ready-made cards online. Most of these sites use a random card
generator, which means that all the cards will be different.

The aim of the game is to have the guests ask each other the questions on
their cards. As soon as they find someone with, for example, a tattoo,
they write that person’s name on the appropriate block. The first guest
to fill their bingo card is the winner of the game. Another good idea is
to offer a prize to the winner of the icebreaker bingo game. The prize
can be anything from a yearbook if it is a reunion to a special gift at a
Christmas of birthday party.

The amount of icebreaker bingo games the guests play depends on the host
and the amount of time set aside for the icebreaker bingo game. The
intention is to let game last as long as possible, because guests are
talking and interacting with each other.

Icebreaker bingo is a must-have for every party. It is fun, entertaining
and an easy, comfortable way to meet other people.
