‘A FOIA war story’: It’s time to play NICAR bingo

The annual Computer-Assisted Reporting conference kicked off Wednesday in Baltimore, Md., and if you’re attending, you can play a little bingo.

On Feb. 4, Jim Romenesko posted a “Journalism Guest Speaker Cliche Bingo Game” made by Kyle Clauss and Alex Reimer.


In August, Quotulatiousness offered up a bad-back-to-school journalism bingo game. Or if you want to keep things basic, eduBakery has a suggested set-up for journalism bingo.

If you’d rather add a little liquid to the fun, Forum created a “House of Cards” drinking game. (If you’re still catching up, this should slow your progress considerably.)
