How to Play Resistance Bingo

To win Resistance Bingo, a player must place their initials inside each corresponding box for the act of resistance they have taken. (Keep in my mind that part of resisting fascism includes organizing and building power to defeat it long term. We encourage folks to expand their thinking on what resistance is and can look like.)

Once a player obtains the necessary boxes for the level of difficulty they are playing, they should shout/post/call/text, "RESIST!

When a person successfully gets all of the boxes needed and shouts “RESIST!”,” 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 Resistance Bingo card has won the game. No #AlternativeFacts playing here please. 

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