Can you spot a Cher song in just a few seconds? And identify in which decade it was a hit?
If the answer is yes, then Christmas Bingo is right up your street!
Each guest will be given a clipboard, dabber and bingo card containing 25 songs split across 5 decades of musical history, but don’t panic, they’re all big selling singles and easily recognisable…as long as you listen carefully.
A short burst of music is played over the PA system and all you need to do is listen to the lyrics and find the matching song title on your bingo card and cross it off before the next hit plays.
Fast, furious, fun ensues as you battle to be the first player to get all 5 songs from one decade and call ‘line’ or ultimately fill your card completely for the’ House’ prize.
A great way to get the energy flowing and perfect as an icebreaker either before your conference or as an after dinner game to get the party started.
