Bingo is a common classroom game especially in the language classroom. However, it is often a time waster (IMHO) and not very communicative at all. Best to make it whole language and functional - about communicating some meaning/idea. Bingo Basic is a game I created that does just that.
Get the rules/how to play on the powerpoint or flash presentations (in flash, just pause the player on the bingo sheet you want to use). Many games there.
But the idea is to have one student who doesn't see the card being asked by groups of students questions about the bingo card - using the form you are studying. It is kind of like a fun drill and the questions are real. The student at the front must answer for real. The group that gets three in a row wins!
Let me know if you've tried this game and how it turned out! Probably other ways to do this - just by printing the slides of the powerpoint and giving to students as a game board.
