Mod post: 2018 bingo game - Round 1 voting now open [Now CLOSED as of 12/8/17]

Under the cut is a list of the 31 categories we've had suggested. What I'd like you (and keli and I, too) to do is to vote for 10 of them you'd like to see on the final card. After a week or so, I'll tally the votes and the 6 categories that have the most votes will make it onto the card, the other four will be placed back in the list for the next round of voting. I'd like for us to choose six categories per week through the month of December.

Comments will be screened until time to tally the votes.
