Bingo halls started appearing around the UK during the 1960s, many decades before the Internet arrived to make the online version of this popular game even possible. Furthermore, online bingo has evolved to offer a playing experience that differs markedly from that of standard bingo.
The Ultimate Bingo Party Guide
Bingo is a game that is enjoyed by women of all ages. If you really enjoy this game, then you will be interested in throwing the ultimate bingo party. Gather everyone together and throw a girls bingo party that will be the talk of the town. Before starting, however, it is important to keep a few pointers in mind.
Bingo Party Guide:
Having a bingo party is a great way to provide an evening of fun for all your girlfriends. The first step is to select the theme. Maybe you would you like to organize to 80’s or 90’s themed party, with music from that era? Or perhaps a theme based on a favorite movie or television show? No need to go overboard with decorations, just have some basic invitations created and gather your music (and maybe a few posters) together.
Get all of your supplies together. These include:
Bingo Roller Cage
Extra Tables (or playing surfaces)
Then, just simply organize your playing space for your guests to sit. Make sure everyone has cards, daubers and all of the required tools. Also, ensure that everyone is clear on which version of bingo is played (i.e. 90-ball UK, 75-ball American, 80-ball or even 30-ball speed bingo…or a combination of different games) and the rules.
Part of the fun of having a girl’s bingo party is being able to pick your own games. Decide which patterns will be needed for a win, and how many winners per game. Will there be any consolation flights? For example, will those who are 1-away and/or 2-away continue to play on for a second prize after the game has been won?
If you like, some appetizers or finger foods may be served. Perhaps some wine or other light refreshments. This will serve to lighten the mood and create a wonderfully social atmosphere, which should be one of the goals of the party.
Prizes can be handled in several different ways. You could choose to offer small items. These could either be purchased at dollar stores, or even donated by the guests. On the other hand, it would also be possible to charge the guests per card (check and make sure this is permissible in your location first). Then, you may be able to offer some cash prizes instead of, or in addition to small trinkets.
Online Bingo Party:
A really easy version of having the ultimate bingo party at home is to play the games online. This could involve everyone logging in to your favorite bingo site and having a “virtual” party. Of course, you would need to have a number of devices able to connect to the internet (or each person could bring their own).
