    Vegan Icebreaker Bingo!

    For my next Vegan Chicago Meetup i'm toying with the idea of playing IceBreaker Bingo to get people to interact more. It's one of our biggest problems at events and for our 6th anniversary i'd like to try this social experiment. Bingo cards will be handed out and this is how it's played:
    Directions: An individual wants to fill out her/his paper by asking different people whether or not the statement in the square is true about them. Write the name of the person or have that person sign the square. Only one person per square. Also, each square must have a different name. This guarantees that each participant is talking to multiple people throughout the game. The first person to fill her/his paper of names or fills a row or column or names, yells Bingo. At that point, the Bingo winner must introduce to the group each person whose name she/he wrote down and which square each person matches.
    I need to come up with a list of statements and it would be nice if they had a (nonjudgemental) vegan spin to them. A typical statement list is something like this:
    can name 3 marsupials. _________
    can say the alphabet backwards.
    can touch their toes. __________
    can wiggle their nose. _________
    cheers for the Maple Leafs. ____
    doesn't go to your school. _____
    drinks coffee regularly. _______
    has a pet. _____________________
    has as many siblings as you. ___
    has heard of Led Zeppelin. _____
    is born in the same month of the
    is wearing a watch. ____________
    is willing to sing in front of s
    is younger than you. ___________
    likes McDonalds. _______________
    likes mushrooms on pizza. ______
    likes yogurt. __________________
    owns a Britney Spears CD. ______
    owns a Disney movie on VHS tape.
    plays a sport. _________________
    prefers Pepsi over Coke. _______
    was born outside of BC. ________
    watched a movie last week. _____
    watches soap operas. ___________
    watches tennis on TV. __________
    watches the Food Network. ______
    BOOORing right?!

    I figured i'd try to harness the power of VR to help compile a fun list.
    So can you help a vegan brother out? Can you think of some creative vegan-centric bingo statements?

    Good, i was afraid this might be too cornball. Still i will make this optional with plenty of positive reinforcement.

    eta: We played a version of this in Girl Scouts. Totally fun.

    Bought vegan goodies at Ethical Planet in the last few months
    Had cake at Blind Faith
    Never been to Cousin's before.
    Had the chili cheese fries at VeggieBite
    Marched at Fur Free Friday last week.

    You're welcome! I based my list on some of the threads we have, since clearly those are things vegans find interesting. How about a few more:
    -knows the word for “vegan” in at least 3 languages
    -works for a vegan restaurant/store/etc.
    -has a vegan and/or A/R tattoo
    -has made seitan from scratch
    -has at least 7 A/R and/or vegan t-shirts
    -has been to an A/R conference
    -is also freegan
    -is also a raw foodist
    -regularly attends A/R-related protests
    -has traveled more than 5 hours specifically to visit a particular vegan establishment
    -has a favorite vegan author (i.e. Singer, Francione, Regan, etc.)
    -is male, single, and not too physically fit
