How to Make NFL Bingo Cards for the Big Game

The NFL playoffs are still in the early rounds, but the biggest game takes place on February 5th. If you plan on throwing a party for the NFL finale, you’re probably wondering how to keep everyone engaged. After all, not everyone who shows up will actually be interested in what’s happening on the field. And only two teams can play, so the chances your home team will be competing is slim. The game isn’t the only reason people tune in. Some people look forward to the halftime show. Plus, it’s the only televised event in the whole year where people look forward to the commercials. You can make watching those countless commercials even more entertaining by creating NFL bingo cards for everyone at the party. Get to know the basics right here.


How to Make NFL Bingo Cards for the Big Game

Find the Advertisers

The first step for creating NFL bingo cards is to find as many advertisers as possible that are guaranteed to air advertisements during the game. Some of the biggest advertisers are always going to be there, but there are also some wild cards, and there are always a few new companies who have the money and creativity to live up to the game’s high commercial expectations. Here’s the current list of advertisers airing ads so far.

Keep Things Simple

You don’t have to put down a specific company to create great NFL bingo cards. You can also create cards with certain slots based on educated guesses, or keep things simple, such as: “Luxury Car Commercial” or “Beer Commercial“. You could also add fun guesses like big celebrities you think will make an appearance.

Random Assortment

Once you have all your categories figured out, the final step is to make each card unique. You don’t want a few of the same people winning for the exact same list. One good solution is to cut out all your squares that you’ll use on every board (usually 25 squares with a free square in the middle), then mix them up in a bowl and pick them out at random. This will essentially guarantee that every card will have an original design.

Add Your Own Twists

You can also get creative when creating each card, adding squares for a variety of different things to keep everyone entertained throughout the night. If you’re playing additional games, you can reserve squares for the winners of these games, or reserve some free squares for people who guess the right score at halftime.

Don’t forget to stock up on prizes for the winner of your commercial bingo contest. Here are a few ideas:

4 Tips For a Successful Fun at Work Day

Many people dream about coming into a work environment filled with activities, team work and most of all fun. You can stop dreaming because January 28th is Fun at Work Day! It?s a great chance to take a break from the usual routine and have a blast–but how do you have fun at work? We?ve got four tips to make Fun at Work Day legendary in your office.

1. Games

Fun at Work Day is all about the fun so play a few games to lighten the mood. There are numerous games you can play at the office. Here are a few for inspiration.

Paperclip Trail

This game can be a timed event between competitors. Each competitor has a stack of paperclips to choose from. When the game starts the goal is to connect as many paperclips as possible to make the longest trail. At the end, the trail will be measured and the longest paperclip trail is declared the winner.

Bobble Head Challenge

Bobble-head-challengeThis activity is known to make those playing and watching laugh. Have participants line up in preparation for the game. Each participant receives a headband and a pedometer. After they have their headbands on, attach the pedometer to the front of the headband and set each pedometer to zero. For one minute the participants will bobble their own heads in order to make the pedometer count. The person with the highest number on their pedometer wins the challenge.

 

 

2. Casual to Themed

When participating in fun games no one wants to be dressed in their business gear.? A causal jeans day would be a crowd pleaser. If you want to inspire even more fun, make a theme day out of it. Choose a fun theme such as Hawaiian Day, Funky Hair Day or even a Superhero Day to create a fun atmosphere.

3. Desk Duty

It may be difficult for some people to get away for a physical activity. Puzzles such as Sudoku or trivia questions are a great option to those who can?t get away. You can choose a pop culture or even create your own puzzles for an extra challenge.

4. Food Day

An option to have a lunch set up can take the stress away at lunch time and make the day more enjoyable.
