In Social Bingo, each player receives a bingo card. The object is to mark off squares by finding someone who meets the description of the square. The person matching the description initials the square.
Bingo squares can be marked off in a diagonal, vertical, or horizontal line. When this is accomplished the player boldly declares "bingo" and he or she is the winner.
A player can declare bingo when five different guests have signed the card. Of course, a little prize or a nice party favor sweetens the ice breaker.

The host explains that each guest should finish the statement by writing something in the blank. The strips of paper are collected and re-distributed randomly.
Each guest must find the owner of the statement on the piece of paper they receive. This is accomplished by mingling with all the other guests.
The Social Scavenger Hunt is also great as an engagement party game. For more engagement party games click here.

Well, when you complete your card you yell out, "Bingo!" and it's played with a grid of squares on a piece of paper, but that's pretty much where the similarities end.
It is of course, a great ice breaker game and a fun way to get to know interesting facts about friends and people you work with. In fact, if you're in search of office party games for a holiday party, Social Bingo is a great choice.
All of the cards are the same, but everyone will have different results when playing.
Here's how the Social Bingo game is played:
Download and print out enough cards so that each guest gets one. Each card has squares (like a typical bingo card) but, a description is in each square. Guests mingle to find someone who meets the description on one of their squares. When another guest fits the description he or she initials the card.
The object is to collect initials or signatures, thereby "marking off" squares. Players cannot have two boxes initialed from the same person.
When a player has collected enough signatures to mark across the card in a diagonal or straight line across or down, he or she announces "Bingo". The player calls out her descriptions along with the name of the person who signed. This person is the winner. The person with the best chance of winning is probably a "social butterfly."
A gift could be provided for the winner if you desire. Also, you could let the remaining players continue for a second-round winner.
This is a perfect party icebreaker for large parties where you want everyone to get comfortable and to meet one another. Consider this game for your next home party or as part of your engagement party game ideas.
You can also create your own bingo game. If you know something unique about a guest that no one else knows -- "is a master gardener," or "traveled to Japan," for examples -- then you can use this fact to customize your game and make it very personal.
