If you’re looking for a way how to play bingo on Zoom, Ken has produced this quick guide to get you started. Bingo is a fun and interactive way to connect with friends and family on Zoom. With a few simple steps, you can easily set up a game of bingo on Zoom and enjoy some friendly competition with your loved ones. Here’s a quick guide on how to play bingo on Zoom.
Create your Zoom bingo cards
Once you have chosen your bingo game platform, it’s time to create your Zoom bingo cards. Most platforms offer a variety of customization options, such as choosing the number of squares on your card, selecting a theme, and adding images or text. You can also choose to have the platform randomly generate your Zoom bingo card for you. Once you have created your cards, save them and share them with your friends and family on Zoom. Make sure everyone has their own unique card to play with.
To play bingo on Zoom, you will need to share your screen with your participants. To do this, click on the “Share Screen” button located at the bottom of your Zoom window. Select the window or application you want to share (in this case, your bingo game platform), and click “Share”. Your participants should now be able to see your screen and play along with you. Make sure to remind them to mark their bingo cards as you call out the numbers!
Call out the numbers
Once you have shared your screen and everyone is ready to play, it’s time to start calling out the numbers. Use your bingo game platform to generate random numbers and call them out to your participants. Make sure to speak clearly and repeat each number a few times to ensure everyone has heard it correctly. Encourage participants to mark their bingo cards as you call out the numbers and to speak up if they have a bingo. Have fun and enjoy the game!
Celebrate the winner!
Once someone gets a bingo, make sure to celebrate their win! You can have them share their screen to show their winning card or have them verbally confirm their bingo. Congratulate the winner and consider offering a prize, such as a virtual gift card or a promise to buy them a drink the next time you see them in person. Don’t forget to continue playing and having fun with your group!
Zoom bingo for work
Your HR department is probably always on the lookout for team-building ideas and Zoom bingo is a great ice-breaker. It is super simple to play, lots of fun and doesn’t require too much effort in the way of setting up and running. Zoom bingo for work can be played when people are working from home, one of your team is off sick or during the next lockdown (God forbid!) give a game of work bingo a try and let me know how your Zoom bingo meeting went.
This is what Ken has to say…
Playing bingo on Zoom can be satisfying and fun and when combined with a little alcohol it can be tremendously funny too.
