Yesterday while in Seoul, I made a new friend, an American guy from San Francisco. While on the subway on our way to the Seoul Racecourse track, he produced two pieces of paper from his pocket and asked, “How do you feel about playing ‘Subway Bingo’? Of course , I said yes, without a second thought.
Each player gets a piece of paper with a grid on it similar to normal Bingo. Except instead of numbers, you must find certain unusual things on the subway from ‘A homeless person’ to ‘A woman in hookerish boots’. We had great fun spotting all the various people and compteting to see who could find the most to win the game. So next time you plan on spending quite some time on a train, makes some new friends and introduce them to the hilarious invention that is ‘Subway Bingo’!
Here is the full list of what we needed to spot;
A Homeless Person.
Korean version of someone you know.
Foreigner in a Korean style outfit.
Someone eating on the Subway.
A stranger who talks to you in English.
A woman speaking with a whiney intonation.
Ajosshi (old person) with alcohol breath.
A young person in Handicapped seats.
A bible thumper.
People drinking on the subway.
A salesman or saleswoman
A person with an I-pad.
