Reunion Help

I'm working on stuff for the reunion and I'm seeking help from my fellow bloggers. First of all I'm creating a BINGO game for the evening of the mixer. It will be similar to a scavenger hunt where they have to find people that fit the description in each square. Some of the clues are things like "Someone that has two or more tattoos." "Someone that has four or more children." "Someone that had Mrs. So-So for Math" etc. If you have any ideas for additional squares, please note them in the comments.

Also, if you're a child of the 80's give me some ideas of pictures to use for a "Name that Picture" game. Some pictures I have are of the Chernobyl disaster, an Atari game, Betamax, Geradine Ferraro, etc. I want them to be something that isn't totally obvious - like Ronald Reagan.

Last is an elimination game where everyone stands if they meet a certain criteria until there's only one left standing. Examples would be the person that traveled the farthest, most legs living in their house etc. I need additional ideas on this.

So to encourage participation, if you leave a comment with an idea, I'll choose one person (by random drawing) and send them a little something.

How about the space shuttle discovery disaster?

Sounds like you've got things going, should be fun!

Oh....I can't come to Vegas. I had already promised my daughter to help her move, and guess which week she wants help in? I'm so bummed!!

how about a picture of the game space invaders or galaga or galaxa (not sure what it was called). Name all the kids on the Cosby Show. That last one standing is kinda hard; maybe one of the items is if you are still with your GF or BF from high school. :o) (that's me and my hubs) but would certainly be very few couples.
