New York City, NY (June 25, 2019) – The Primary Ride Home, a daily news podcast focusing exclusively on the 2020 U.S. presidential primary elections, presents Primary Debate Bingo, a fun way to get acquainted with the candidates in the crowded Democratic field.
Players can download Debate Bingo Cards from the Primary Ride Home's website at https://ridehome.info/bingo for each night of the DNC debates – Wednesday, June 26 and Thursday, June 27. Ten bingo cards are available for each night for debate watchers hosting or attending watch parties, with players invited to tweet pictures of their parties and bingo cards at #PRHbingo.
Chris Higgins, host of the Primary Ride Home, said: "This is the first time we’ll be able to see the candidates go head-to-head, and I’m excited about that. But it’ll take four hours over two nights. I created Primary Ride Home Debate Bingo to give viewers something to do during the inevitable downtime in these long debates. For folks just tuning in (including kids) all the way to political junkies, PRH Debate Bingo is easy to play and mildly educational.
"The format is simple, designed to introduce the candidates to voters. There are two squares on every board devoted to each candidate, plus a handful of extra squares for topics that are likely to come up on each night. The goal is that you’ll key in on something each candidate says, and leave each night having attached a real identity to these candidates.
"The game board itself acts like a mini debate guide, showing you each candidate’s name and face, along with where they’ll be sitting.
"Elections aren’t a game. This is serious stuff. Having said that, if you’re willing to sit through four hours of debates on a monthly basis...by all means, grab a bingo card and stay hydrated."
