BuzzWord Bingo
As heard about in the Wall Street Journal !!
 
And in WIRED Magazine (October/98) !!

What's new in 1.1?

BuzzWord Bingo 1.1 now supports ALL the PalmPilots. It has been tested on the original Palm 1000, 5000, Palm Personal/Professional and the Palm III. There are also a couple of graphical glitches that were fixed (when the screen did not redraw completely). There still seem to be some problems on NON-English Operating Systems.

What is it?

BuzzWord Bingo is based on a Dilbert Cominc strip. Instead of using normal bingo squares (like B1, I17, G43, etc.) you use BuzzWords. You can play during meetings at work. If your boss (or the person speaking) uses a BuzzWord on your "card", you check it off. The objective is to fill an entire row (just like normal Bingo). When you win -- shout BINGO!
