Different BINGO Games!

Remember when we mentioned that our BINGO games were a perfect fit for your college? Well, Playlist BINGO is one of our ready-made games where we put on a show. “What’s Playlist Bingo,” I hear you asking. It’s our modern spin on that classic numbers-calling game. In this game, we put your knowledge of musical trivia is put to the test.  As you know, we take enormous pride in our ability to put together a game show, and we don’t cut corners here.

How exactly does it work?

This virtual game show is fairly simple. We’ll play a part of a song, and if you have the name of the artist on your card, fill it out. Match a row, column or diagonal and announce “Playlist BINGO!” to win! We plan for multiple games, so even if you don’t win the first time there’s another shot. 

Also, to keep things fair we like to use a few genres. Some of our favorites are TV theme songs, boy bands, 80s music, rock music, and rap! Of course, that’s not all and you can tailor the game however necessary, add more or take out whatever genres you want. 

We also offer a spinoff of this instant classic, Pride BINGO! These two Bingo games play the same, except Pride BINGO only features artists and performances that are a part of or embraced by the LGBTQA+ community. For example, popularly featured artists would include Elton John, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, RENT, and so many more.  Both of these BINGO games are perfect for both in-person and virtual college events!

Fresh Face Variety
