The Union of Concerned Feminists (@concernedfems) created this bingo game. Though it was made with the recent 2014 Women in Computing Grace Hopper Celebration event in mind, you can play it at any social gathering where men offer excuses for their lukewarm opposition to sexism.
A self-described "guerilla intervention group" dubbing itself the Union of Concerned Feminists distributed roughly 450 Ally Bingo cards to the audience just before the session took place. These cards condemned the panel as "milquetoast corporate 'feminism'", and urged attendees to "read more about actual feminism in technology", pointing them to this wiki, the Geek Feminism Blog, ModelViewMedia, and The Ada Initiative.
If you ever get bored of the current grid, you can randomize a new one using this handy list. This particular version of the Ally Bingo game has antecedents, too -- here, here, here -- each with its own twist.

What could go wrong on a short trip from Portsmouth in England to the bucolic Isle of Wight? A hovercraft pilot nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit, that's what.
Richard Pease missed the landing pad, slumped limp in his chair when asked if he was OK, and had to be replaced by a colleague before the craft could be successfully docked. The ship was carrying 36 passengers at the time, and had carried 95 on an earlier trip.
Pease, 50, was breath-tested "some six hours later" and found to be shitfaced. He subsequently pleaded guilty to a charge of being "master of a hovercraft having consumed excess alcohol," and was sentenced to eight months imprisonment. [via]
