To put it in simple words, Bingo Music is a game based on traditional Bingo in which each number is related to a song and a challenge related to it.
It is not just Bingo, it is much more because the songs propose fun challenges while enjoying the universal entertainment vehicle that is music.
It is mostly used in office environments because it is a customizable activity in form and content that adapts to the needs of each company to work on creativity, teamwork, collaboration or the ability set by the company.
How to play Music Bingo
A bingo without cards is "like a garden without flowers", nothing a wise man said once. So, the first thing we must have are some Bingo Music cards to distribute among the participants. There will be several models of cardboard and they can be printed or have virtually.
There will be a ball blower or similar to call the numbers. Each number will be related to a song and the presenter will call one by one, in such a way that the activity consists of identifying which Bingo Music song is playing when it comes out, marking those that are playing on your card.
Those players who first identify each song will be able to cross out the box, taking into account that the number to which it is associated is on their card. One card is distributed per person.
It may happen that, instead of numbers, the titles of songs or the name of the musical group or solo artist are on the cards and when they are recognized, they are crossed out.
The operation of a Bingo Music is like a normal bingo because Line will be “called” when one is complete or Bingo will be “called” when the card is completed. The songs don't play complete, just long enough to recognize the theme... although if you dare to dance and sing it gets longer.
You can customize the songs with the decade of music you prefer or even with some specific musical groups: hip hop music, international music, hits from the 80s or 90s like any of the classics.
To make the Bingo Music game more inviting, there may be challenges for the balls. These challenges can be individual, in pairs, in groups or for the whole team. The points accumulated in these challenges serve as wild cards for the end and can speed up Line or Bingo on the cards.
What songs does Bingo Music feature
The songs are customizable and changing with the games in advance. They can be from a specific decade or decades, from musical styles or from one or several languages.
Each song can play up to 3 times (3 different parts).
It is important to select songs that motivate the group, that even predispose them to sing and dance. A funky presenter will do everything possible to make you move the skeleton and earn extra points. In the end, having fun is the point of playing this game.
Face-to-Face Bingo Music
The game can be played in person or online. In person it is more similar to the traditional version of the game. A good time to do this is at the end of a meeting or diner to relax and distend things a big if it’s a working environment.
