TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH

Next, take the grid with you to a meeting.


Pay attention for someone in the meeting to say any of these words. 


When they do, put a cross in the grid square. 


Once you have crossed five squares, shout "Bingo!" out loud.

Testimonials from satisfied corporate players: 
"I had only been in the meeting for five minutes when I yelled bingo." 


"My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically." 


"It's a wheeze, meetings will never be the same for me after my first outright win." 


"The atmosphere was tense at the last process workshop as 32 of us listened intently for the elusive 5th." 


"The facilitator was gobsmacked as we all screamed bingo for the 3rd time in 2 hours." 


"I feel that the game has enhanced the overall quality of meetings per se on a quid pro quo basis." 


"People are now even listening to mumblers, thanks to this bingo."
