At a house party where people don’t know each other very well, I use a Bingo game to incite introductions and mingling.
(1) In advance of the event, ask each guest to provide a couple of fun facts about her/himself.
(2) Then, use the handy-dandy app below to create as many Bingo cards are there are guests.
(3) Hand each guest a card upon their arrival, and challenge them to identify guest names corresponding to squares on their card. When they identify four squares in a row, they call out “bingo” to the crowd.
(4) Put something on the line (like a nice bottle of liquor) for the winner to ensure everyone’s enthusiastic engagement with the game!
