Need group game for Spring Fling

What about an informational scavenger hunt? We do a trivia hunt to encourage folks to interact and learn about the school, but you could put a different spin on it and have it some other kind of a contest where awards can be given out for different reasons (first to complete the list, most enthusiastic team, most helpful to others, etc... Here is the listing of questions we used this past fall for the trivia hunt. Everyone seemed to have a good time and we gave away school cookbooks to the "winners". We made a point of mentioning that everyone was considered winners if they took the time to do the hunt and/or helped a neighbor who was new to the school and didn't have the first clue as to where to find the answers....and these were not questions that answers could be faked or guessed at! Good luck and let us know what you end up doing.

PS The questions were set up in a bingo-like grid, but that wouldn't be necessary really for the worksheet. We also did this at a family reunion with family related questions. What a hoot! Everyone at the reunion had a blast!!

Our elementary is organizing a Spring Fling family event which will take place from about 6:00-8:30pm on May 3rd. There will be several things going on at the school including: concessions and Bingo in the cafeteria, Sock Hop in the Gymn, Silent Auction (Baskets) in the Foyer, BookFair in the Library. However, we won't know until mid-April whether or not our Bingo license has been approved. I need suggestions for a backup game for a crowd of adults where prizes can be awarded, just in case our application is denied. (No, we can't just do something exactly like Bingo and call it another name - that's illegal.) We expect100-200 adults and Bingo was very popular last time. We prefer something that lots of people can play at once. Remember, this is going to be an almost last minute backup. We don't really want to organize anything complicated like a Casino night. We are looking for something fairly simple. Any ideas for a replacement game would be very much appreciated.
