SysAdmin Day is coming up, but we think you deserve more than one day of recognition. That’s why we’re commemorating the occasion for a full month. After you’ve marched in the parade, posed for a statue, and had brownies and ice cream in the break room, join us for a fun game of SysAdmin Squares! That’s right, it’s Hollywood Squares Bingo style, using events, experiences, and scenarios that you as a SysAdmin come across every day. You haven’t played Bingo until you’ve played it the SysAdmin Squares way. Here is your chance to win points and prizes for dealing with password resets, server outages, and Bob in marketing. Look back and laugh at what you achieve every day throughout the year.

 

In traditional bingo you wait to hear letter/number combinations to mark your card until someone yells “Bingo,” and then you fling your game card across the room because you haven’t had a bingo since the fourth grade. With SysAdmin Squares you earn your daily square just by participating and adding a little fun to your day. Mark your squares by choosing an option from an assortment of questions, clues, adventure stories, and more.

 

July Mission

Each week we'll have a combination of questions/activities that all you will complete in order to earn your daily square. After completing all 5 of the week’s activities, you will earn a Bingo, which enters you to win the weekly prize. Those of you who earn a "blackout" by completing all the squares will be entered to win the grand prize. Download your game card attached to this blog post, and let’s play!
