Death Ed Bingo Card

Sample Death Ed Bingo! card

Do you like playing Bingo? Do you wish there was an easy way to get people to talk about death and funeral planning?

Be one of the first people to play Gail Rubin’s new game, Death Ed Bingo! Laugh and learn about end-of-life issues while playing this word Bingo game online. Gail will debut Death Ed Bingo! with an online Zoom session on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Join her Death Cafe Albuquerque Meetup group to participate.

Death Ed Bingo!

Just like a traditional Bingo game, players will receive a game card with randomized words instead of numbers. As each death- and funeral-related word is called, there’s a brief teachable moment about each word. Words in the game include: Death, Grief, Obituaries, Cremation, Caskets, Green Burial, Pre-Need Planning, Alkaline Hydrolysis, NOR, MAID, NDEs, Embalming, Funeral Director, and Hospice.

This event will be limited to 30 people, so sign up early through this Meetup event to get the Zoom link. Your online Death Ed Bingo! game card link will be sent to registered attendees the day of the game, January 21. Give this online game session a try and provide your feedback. We’re dying to know what you think!
