@ames12708:  In my opinion (hopefully other bees can chime in), then people would just sit and write answers, copy off of other people, etc. and they wouldn’t actually get up and meet other people.  Which is the point of the icebreaker.

I know you said if you don’t have questions to add, don’t post, but I thought I’d try anyways.  I really like the idea of it, but I’m confused on how this will be used as an actual “bingo” game, just becasue of the actual how it works in bingo rules.  I think that’s what others are finding challenging to understand also.  A traditional bingo is draw something and cross it off, not so much an interactive type game.  Of course someone who knows more about you will win faster because they can fill their lines up quicker.  I think it might work better as a scavenger hunt or matching game of some sort.  Or if you are planning on drawing up the cards and leaving blanks for the answers, that could work  better than an actual bingo set up.

I’ve never made my own bingo cards, so not sure how many questions you should have, but no matter how you format the ggame, you have a great assortment of questions already for sure!

I see how it can work. I’m trying to think of questions involving both the bride and groom that people might find interesting to learn. So far all I can come up with is: “How did the groom propose to the bride”. Is there a funny story or something interesting that happened when you guys were dating that you could use to make up questions? I’ll keep thinking of others. I think it’s a neat idea.

@ames12708:  I think you’re getting upset because you’re missing our points.  Just because it has squares doesn’t mean it’s bingo.  Bingo would imply someone was calling out answers that you had on your card.  If they’re finding the answers on their own, I would think it’s a scavenger hunt! 

PPs are also giving suggestions (as you asked) on how to make it more interactive.  I re-read this several times because I was so confused as to why you were so upset.  No one has made fun of it!

“Where was B + G’s first kiss?”

“Where was B + G’s first date?”

“Where are they going on their honeymoon?” (if applicable)

@ames12708:  My only point with trying to call it something else was because it’s CLEARLY confusing people.  I mentioned you should keep your squares.  Best of luck to you.  Sorry for trying to help.

ETA:  I’m going to chalk this up to a stressful bride moment.
