Play GOP Debate Bingo With Us!

These Saturday night debates are a real bummer; the one night each week when wonky people can finally take a break from policy talk and hot takes off is smashed to bits by the siren song of Politics Twitter. But if you’re going to be watching tomorrow’s GOP debate (and, possibly, numbing the pain with a fine adult beverage) anyway, you may as well make a game of it.

So here, we made one for you.

We’re already anticipating lots of soundbites and, as is part and parcel for the GOP candidates, probably a lot of not-super-sound economic policy—which makes this particular Saturday night debate a perfect candidate for a good old-fashioned game of BINGO.

The debate, hosted in New Hampshire by ABC, includea the usual suspects—Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Jeb! Bush, Chris Christie, and John Kasich—but Carly Fiorina is notably out and, mercifully, there’s no “kid’s table” prior to the main event. Topics that will likely be discussed are also pretty predictable: Terrorism, who’s the most likely to carpetbomb an entire region, who can build the bigger wall on the Mexican border, and, probably, something about Trump’s general nature.

The rules of the game are simple: Just mark off the squares if and when they’re addressed. If you want, you can also take a drink of whatever libation you’re enjoying.

Here’s the card:

You can tweet along with us (I’m @mshannabrooks, and we’ll also be at @CivicSkunkworks) and by the end, we’ll all probably be at least a little inebriated or at least mildly entertained.
