Finish the Phrase Bingo

I volunteer as a Bingo caller on Sundays where my Mom lives (assisted living). The residents really like this one! They have fun filling in the phrase and it makes them think a little. The only one that gives us pause is the "Blow your own trumpet" expression -- everyone thinks that should be "horn".

Emoji Bingo

July 17, 2022 is World Emoji Day and I was excited to check out this project for my Bingo calling tomorrow at the assisted living place where my Mom lives. But I don't really understand how to play the game. What do you do with the little balls? Also, how do you describe or call out the emoji's? Do residents understand what they're seeing?

True or False Christmas Traditions

This True/False Christmas Traditions game would even better if the true answer were included, for a little learning experience.

Musical Bingo

Thank you for this Stephanie! After listening to all of the songs, I decided to make a modified version that replaced several melancholy or lesser known songs with upbeat alternatives (Version 2).
I also created a YouTube Music playlist at with these songs and plan to use Shuffle to let YouTube mix it up for me. Would you happen to know if Shuffle will go through the whole list before it repeats a song? Hope so.

Sightseeing Bingo

Love this! I'm going to use this today during my volunteer Bingo calling at my mother's assisted living place. A nice addition might be a short overview of each of the places, to add some educational value/interest to the game.
