Buzzword Bingo is a game played (in secret) by many office workers in the English-speaking world.

Players are each given a different card with several buzzwords that a person delivering a presentation might commonly use. A buzzword is a cliché or an overused word or phrase.

The first person to have a full row in which all the words are crossed out is the winner.
