BSBingo TM (PalmOS)
by Mohan Embar
BSBingo is the perfect corporate productivity tool for staying conscious during meetings you'd otherwise fall asleep in. This version is for PalmOS and will eventually be rereleased as BYOBingo. Check out the Win32/WinCE version too!
How to Play
Every time someone uses one of the words in the lefthand list, you select it, which fills in a square on the bingo board. When you get bingo by filling in five squares across, down or diagonally, you stand up and yell
Bingo! or Bull---- or something similar.
While playing, you can tap on a square on the board to see what word goes there. You can also unselect a word from the lefthand list if you selected it by mistake.
The Game/Options menu lets you choose the Bingo message (Bingo! or Bull---- - spelled out completely).
If the Random Board checkbox is checked, a new board is generated as the start of each new game. (This is useful for competition play.) If the Random Board checkbox is unchecked, the same board is generated each time. (Useful for team play where everyone stands up and shouts when they win.)
Custom Word Lists
You can create custom word lists for BSBingo. You can have several word lists (i.e. technical meetings, managerial, team builder...). You create these word lists as normal memos in MemoPad. The first line of the memo should start with /@-BSBingo:<title> (without the quotes), where <title> is the title of your word list (i.e. Technical, Managerial). The title line must be followed by precisely 25 lines, one word per line. You load a word list in BSBingo using Game/Load Word List. The titles appear as items in the list, with the addition of the BSBingo default word list. This release has a limit of 24 custom word lists.
