You can read more about last month’s Adventure Bingo in Sean Collier’s recap for Pittsburgh Magazine.
When I first attended Adventure Bingo in late 2014, I didn’t know what I was getting into. A dressed-up bingo game, I thought. Or a trivia contest with another layer or two. Both things that aren’t too tough to find in the world; there are twists on pub games all over the place.
Of course, that’s not what Adventure Bingo is. Adventure Bingo is a one-man show from its dynamic host, artist Alexi Morrissey, wherein all other elements — the bingo, the trivia, the prizes, the drinks — are secondary to his flights of fancy and rant-tangents (rantgents?).
Writers aren’t supposed to use the word “unique” too often, but this … this is unique. The magic of Adventure Bingo cannot be duplicated; performance art melded with competition melded with sweat, more than anything else.
