Bingo for Beginners

Bingo is indeed one of the simplest games in the world. All you need are bingo cards, bingo chips, the power to acknowledge numbers, quick eyes, and a prize; even children can roll in the hay. 

The object of the game

The game's object is to complete the pattern involved in a specific game with a rock bottom number of calls. Prints are set before the game begins; it can either be a full, vertical, or horizontal, a box, a diagonal, an X, or what they call a block out, in which you'll need to fill your whole card. 

The Bingo Card

The Bingo card has the letters B, I, N, G, and O across, representing five columns. Each column has a group of numbers from one to seventy-five. 

The B column has numbers from one to fifteen. The I column has numbers sixteen to thirty, the N column has numbers from thirty-one to forty-five, the G column has numbers from forty-six to sixty, and finally, the O column has numbers from sixty-one to seventy-five. Each column may only have five numbers from their designated range. 

The card forms a grid in which the center grid, the third row of the N column is labeled free; this cell doesn't need to be filled.

The Game

First, you would need a Bingo card. You'll have one bingo card at a time, counting on your labeling ability.

The game begins when the host tells everyone the pattern that needs to be formed.

Listen to the host as he calls out a letter in B, I, N, G, or O for the column, then variety from zero-seventy.

Seek this number in your card and label it afterward.

The host continues to call out letters and numbers until someone finishes the pattern required.

Whoever formed the finished pattern should yell "Bingo!" right away to notify everyone.

The host will then verify all the numbers and their position in your card, either by taking your card or shouting out the numbers that made you form the pattern.

Another bingo game may resume either with an equivalent or different pattern, or the same or another prize. 

The prize should be immediately given after the Bingo.


Don't ever yell "Bingo!" if you haven't formed the pattern. This will cause the game to be halted.
