Bingo can be a fun family game, wonder if I could come up with a new bingo call!
Worth a try, Suzanne.
Hi Patsy .. we used to play Bingo at one stage in my early childhood - at home. The old folk play it up at the Nursing Centre with large numbers etc .. I've never played in a Bingo hall ... Cheers Hilary
I did play it in a 'proper' hall once but I think the home made version with silly prizes is probably at least as much fun.
My kids and my husband love playing Bingo. :)
As long as they're happy, eh Rachel?
Bingo was the name of a dog as well. Now, everybody sing!
I missed that one, Alex!
Aha! I would never have guessed the package contained gardening tools!!
It wasn't exactly obvious, Vikki.
Hi Patsy!I know Bingo! I had a small shop while living in NZ and older people would come on bingo days to get the special bingo pens. I did a roaring trade in those! Haven't heard about bingo in a long time now.Nas
I think it's more popular in some areas than others, Nas.
I don't think I've ever played Bingo, but I definitely use it to indicate that someone's right. Thanks for all the competition info. :-)
Hope you'll be shouting the word when you see the results, Lexia.
Bingo seems to be a popular pastime for vacations eg on cruises. I don't play though.
I think you're right, Lynda people do seem to play it on holiday quite a lot.
Sure, I know two fat ladies, but for once I ain't gonna name them. I'll put the whiskey in my saddlebag if that's all right with you, Patsy. So long, Pard. Keep smiling.
Very tactful of you, Cowboy.
This brought back lots of memories - playing bingo with my sister on wet Sunday afternoons with sweets for prizes, crowded amusement arcades at the seaside, my nan taking me to bingo in the village hall where she and her friends were so busy catching up on all the gossip that they missed half the numbers being called ... I might have a go at the poetry comp. Thanks for the link!
Sounds as though the game is quite a tradition in your family, Linda.
I havent been to Bingo in AGES :)Thanks for the reminder honey xx
Me neither, Vikki. I've played in the past a few times with friends who persuaded me to join them and it was OK but I didn't catch the bug.
Looks like I need to move to the UK to do these fun things!
Don't they have bingo in the US, Kracken? Perhaps it is just a British thing as I don't recall ever seeing mention of it played anywhere else.
Unbelievable! I am in Portugal at the minute, Patsy and just received an email to say I'll be receiving two copies of the anthology resulting from this comp TWO years since entering. Apparently I was shortlisted but didn't receive that news (probably thought an email about playing bingo was spam and deleted it! :) so thanks for posting! http://playingbingo.co.uk/competitions-prizes/poetry/index.phpRegards marion
Gosh! That's not a speedy response but it is a good one. Congratulations!
