What Is the Human Bingo?

The human bingo is an autograph-like icebreaker game where you’ll need to roam around the event venue to have your sheets signed by people for completion. Like the original bingo game, the sheets used in human bingo contain 25 boxes. However, instead of numbers, the sheet contains a set of varied contents which includes human characteristics, life and work experiences, hobbies, favorite foods, game characters, or just random questions.

The human bingo game can be played in any occasion and setting, which includes family reunions, workplace team-building activities, summer camps, seminar events, fan conventions, first-day-in-school starter games, office parties, and so forth.

How To Create Interactive Human Bingo Sheets?

When creating your human bingo sheets, always consider the type of people who will be attending the event or joining the game. This way, you will know what kind of questions or words to include in the sheets. Below are some tips that you can use to help you to create a sheet for your own bingo game.

1. Prepare a Set of Questions or Words 

Before you start making your bingo sheets online, you should write down a list of questions and words which you would like to integrate into the game. I.e., if you want people to discover a colleague, classmate, or an acquaintance’s favorite sports or athletes, then you can include a random question about sports. The trick here is to have a variety of creative and unique topics that you can use to make the game more challenging and fun. 

2. Use a Digital Randomizer

In the original bingo game, you will find that every bingo card does not have the same number in every column. With the help of a digital randomizer, you can generate a different set of questions per bingo sheet. This is why it is recommended that you have a lot of questions so that you won’t have to print out the same bingo sheet for the participants. Since the questions are of different contents, your participants would have to roam around the venue to have their sheets signed, enabling them to meet more people.

3. Include Illustrations (Optional)

Make your bingo sheets look amazing with simple aesthetics, especially if your human bingo consists of body parts, items, facial expressions, and more. Of course, this is optional if you want to have a simple bingo sheet to hand out. In case you might want to consider incorporating illustrations and graphic designs in your sheet, make sure that the colors do not obstruct the text or it would become distracting for the participants.

4. Integrate Game Instructions

Do you have a specific target or time limit for your human bingo game? If so, it is essential that you include these game instructions clearly and precisely. Instructions make your participant aware of what they are going to be doing, plus they would instantly know who to approach for the signatures.

Who created the bingo game?

It was Edwin Lowe, a salesman from New York, U.S.A., who invented the bingo game after watching a game in Georgia. However, it was said that the bingo game actually originated in Italy.

What are the different winning patterns in bingo?

To win a bingo game, you must cross the boxes diagonally, horizontally, vertically, in an X shape, or through a blackout. But, there are times when callers could arrange various patterns depending on the occasion.

What is the best way to highlight bingo cards?

If your bingo sheet is disposable (for one-time use only), you can use highlighters and pens to mark numbers or sign in the boxes. But if you want to use the bingo sheets or cards for another event, then it is better to use ones with foldable cuts in the middle of the boxes.

If you do not have an icebreaker game that you can use to warm up the event and the enthusiasm of your guests, then it’s time to try the human bingo game! To begin, you can check out our editable and printable templates which you can design and customize at any time.
