Stuck in an interminable D.C. Council meeting like, say, today’s? Then you’ll want to become a player of Mendo, the hottest game named after Council Chairman Phil Mendelson.
WNEW’s Matt DelSignore tweeted that variations of the above bingo-style game card, featuring spaces like “Mayor Gray” and “Night Clubs in Ward 5,” were being passed out in the Council chamber today. No word on who’s behind the game or what the prizes are, but the option to list an office in the top right corner of the sheet suggests the game is for Council staffers.
Suggestions for new Mendo squares have been proposed on Twitter:
Also, “point of order” square should be “pt of order that isn’t actually a pt of order, just CM who wants to talk RIGHT NOW” #dccouncilbingo

The best news for Mendo players? An appearance by Sulaimon Brown. But really, isn’t that good news for everyone?
