We're playing a site-wide game of CISCO (BINGO) for prizes provided by several sponsors. The game starts on 2/6/2012 and ends when all the prizes are claimed.
Welcome, you must be foreign or under 70. Check out the BINGO WikiPedia page to see all the details but here is a excerpt from the site for brevity:
A typical Bingo game utilizes the numbers 1 through 75. The five columns of the card are labeled 'B', 'I', 'N', 'G', and 'O' from left to right. The center space is usually marked "Free" or "Free Space", and is considered automatically filled. The range of printed numbers that can appear on the card is normally restricted by column, with the 'B' column only containing numbers between 1 and 15 inclusive, the 'I' column containing only 16 through 30, 'N' containing 31 through 45, 'G' containing 46 through 60, and 'O' containing 61 through 75.
We are only recognizing straight horizontal, vertical and corner-to-corner lines as winners. No postage stamps, four corners, or other variations.
How do I play?
Each registered forum member has a unique user id, that number is used as the random number generator seed to generate that user's unique (probably) CISCO card. Watch the "Numbers" section of this post every morning (US Central time zone) for the new number to be announced. Post up "CISCO!" when you get 5 numbers (or 4 plus the free spot) in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. It's that easy.
To find your forum user id, look at the URL when viewing your profile. It will read something like "http://www.networking-forum.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2" where 2 is the user id.
Take that user id and plug it into this URL to see your game board, "http://www.networking-forum.com/bingo.php?uid=2" obviously replacing 2 with your user id.

- Any member found to be using multiple accounts for the purposes of claiming prizes will be disqualified, their accounts permanently banned, and shunned from the community. For life.
- First come, first serve. If you get a BINGO from the number announced on day 8, yet you don't post up that you won until day 88 and all prizes are gone then you are out of luck.
- One prize per player.
- Players can not hold this site (Amoeba Solutions LLC) or the game's sponsors accountable. We're just trying to have fun and give some stuff away so if you don't win, join us in the next contest.
- The game details, rules and prizes can change at any time.
