How to Play Resistance Bingo

To win No Burnout Bingo, a player must place their initials inside each corresponding box for the act of burnout prevention they have taken. (We encourage folks to expand their thinking on what preventing burnout can look like.)

Once a player obtains the necessary boxes for the level of difficulty they are playing, they should shout/post/call/text, "No Burnout!”

When a person successfully gets all of the boxes needed and shouts “No Burnout!”, the game is paused to see if they have indeed won.  Check that the player can in some way verify that they indeed can check off that box (some actions may need some explaining and details shared), and then if so, the player with the winning No Burnout Bingo card has won the game. Don’t burn yourself out while playing please. 

Time to play again with a new card or a new way of playing!
