Lite of the mind (a light-hearted look at all things Chicago)
Win the war of words
By Mary Ruth Yoe

- At holiday gatherings, alumni events, or wherever two or more UChicagoans find themselves in the same room, certain words and phrases always arise—phoenix-like—from the clashes.
- Who wins the argument may be subjective, but who wins Chicago-style bingo goes strictly by the rules.
- Each player gets a card. If a phrase in one of the boxes gets uttered, check it off.
- If you check five boxes in a straight or diagonal line, you win. The C in the middle is free.
- And when you win, shout, “Cingo!”
