After the leader says, the participants ask each other if they have ever done or can do the things listed on the bingo card. The game continues until someone completes a row, column, or diagonal and yells BINGO!
Application: Teamwork The participants join in pairs. Each pair is instructed to have "thumb wars" and the object is to have as many wins as possible in 10 seconds.

Your customized program begins with a private consultation with Angie. A proposed program outline is then developed and sent to you for review. The proposal includes recommended games and activities which address the teambuilding concepts specific to your organizational needs.
Games are also designed according to the size of the group. Teams can rotate through a series of competitive games or work collectively on activities that focus on problem solving, communication, leadership, support and creativity. After Angie receives your feedback, the final program agenda is established.
