Bingo! What A Great Game!

Bingo is a great game, I really enjoy it. It’s so nice to play both with your friends and also on-line.

For those of you who don’t know how to play the game at the start you get a card with different numbers on it. Then the bingo caller calls out the numbers at random one by one. If the number that is called is on your card then you mark it off. 
The winner is the person who is the first to mark off all the numbers on their card. When the person crosses off the last number they then shout “bingo” to let everyone know that they have won. Usually there are also prizes for being the first to get certain sections or lines of your card marked off first.

Bingo is also very famous for the special calls given when certain numbers are called out. For example if the number 66 is pulled out of the draw the caller will say “clickety click” before then saying “66”. However most regular bingo players will know which number to mark off on their cards from the first call, before the actual number is called out. Other examples of calls are “two fat ladies” for 88,  “legs eleven” for number 11 and “buckle my shoe” for 32.

Nice saying shows your character but that doesn't mean you can criticize. You can still do both in nice and polite way.
