Turn the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony into A Bingo Extravaganza
One of the highlights of any Olympic Games, whether winter or summer, is the opening ceremony. It is designed not only to introduce the competitors, but also to celebrate the culture of the host country.This week the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi begins with its own opening ceremony and it is sure to be full of all things Russian. Of course this provides a perfect opportunity to design a little game and place a few bets with friends.
With a small amount of effort you can turn the opening ceremony into a great game of bingo.
The idea is to fill bingo cards with symbols that are likely to appear in the opening ceremony, it is possible to find these available for download online, or to simply make your own.
Possible symbols for the cards include Russian classics such as a Troika sled, dancing bears, ballet dancers, vodka, folk costumes, famous Russian novelists and composers, and onion domed churches. This is just the tip of the iceberg; with a little bit of imagination it’s possible to come up with loads of symbols.
