Get-to-know-you-bingo is a simple opener game excellent for large groups of like 30 or so. Create a bingo card by making a 5x5 grid with each square grid being about 1.5 inches square. In each box put questions like the ones that follow and a blank line for an answer. Leave the middle square free. It is good to use several versions of the card (i.e. different arrangements of the same or similar questions).
