Have you ever been in a meeting that just seems to drag? I think we’ve all been there. We all have too many calls and too many that we don’t need to be an active participant. If you’re tired of just sitting there, watching the clock and begging it to move faster, how about a game of bingo?
We’ve created an interactive bingo board that you can use on your computer or save and print out to use during conference calls. The squares are some of the most common things that happen or are said during a conference call. Some examples are: Hearing a dog or cat in the background, having echo or feedback on the call, and someone asking, “did someone just join?” Most of these should be ones that most people are familiar with (or maybe they have done themselves!).
How do you play?
It’s best to play with other people, so share the interactive page or print them off some copies. Each time you load the interactive page, the positions of the squares will randomize.
From there, each time you hear or observe the square during your call, check off the box. The first person who gets five squares in a row (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) wins! It’s up to you on how literal you take the requirements for each square, but we suggest being a little flexible. Below is an example of one of the possible conference call bingo boards.
Don’t forget, if you hear something funny, outrageous, or amazing during a meeting or call, submit it here or on Twitter using #OverheardOnCC for a chance to be featured on the site.
