Single Player (5 X 5)

Multiplayer (3 X 3)

BINGO Card & Call Area

Below is a screenshot and description of the different parts of the BINGO Play Area for both Multiplayer and Single Player . Keep in mind if you are playing with a notecard set that has less than 30 notecards you will use the 3 X 3 BINGO Card instead of the 5 X 5 BINGO Card pictured.

  1. Small version of your BINGO Card(s). To switch between cards either click the card to switch to or use your left and right arrow keys.
  2. "Call BINGO" button. Click this button when you have BINGO.
  3. The BINGO Card you are currently viewing. Click an item to select or deselect it. If an item contains an image hover your mouse over the image to view a larger version.
  4. The Current Call. If you're playing with 5 X 5 cards the Call will include a letter. The top right of the Current Call Area shows the Current Call number and total calls.
  5. Previous Calls. Lists, in order, the Calls that have already been made.

How to Play

BINGO is an easy game to play. Here's how a typical game works:

  1. You will be given 1 to 3 randomly generated BINGO Cards
  2. A random Call is made every few seconds
  3. Select items on your BINGO Card(s) that match the Calls
  4. Once you have selected enough items to match the pattern for the Game Type, click the "Call BINGO!" button
  5. If it's a valid BINGO, a few seconds will be given to the other players to check their card before the game ends. If it's not a valid BINGO the game will continue until someone gets a valid BINGO.

Note 1: If you make 3 invalid BINGO calls your game will be over. In Multiplayer, you will be able to play in the next game.
Note 2: If there is more than 1 item that matches a Call, only 1 item should be selected. It doesn't matter which one. For example, if the Call is "5 + 4" and there is more than one "9" on your BINGO Card only select one.

The 2 Game Types are: 5 In A Row and Cover All. Look below for a description of each game type.

5 In A Row

The 5 In A Row Game Type is used when there are 30 or more notecards available. Calls will include a "B", "I", "N", "G" or "O". For example, if you are playing BINGO for State Capitals and the Call is "B-Texas", look for "Austin" under the "B" letter on your BINGO Card.

A valid BINGO is when 5 items in a row are correctly selected to form a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line.

Cover All

The Cover All Game Type is used when there are less than 30 notecards available. Calls will not include a letter. For exampleif you are playing BINGO for Solar System and the Call is "closest to the sun", look for "mercury" anywhere on your BINGO Card.

A valid BINGO is when all 9 items are correctly selected.

Game Results & Stats

Below is a screenshot of the Game Results of a Multiplayer game. The Single Player Game Results looks the same except there are no BINGO Points awarded.

Note: If 2 or more players make valid BINGO calls the first to call BINGO will be 1st, the next to call BINGO will be 2nd and so on.

Did you notice the "Your Stats" section in the screenshot above? It displays the number of items you selected correctly, incorrectly and the ones you missed in the previous game. Here's a quick explanation of each stat:

  • Correct - The items on your BINGO Card(s) you selected that were correct
  • Incorrect - The items on your BINGO Card(s) you selected that were not called
  • Missed - The items on your BINGO Card(s) you did not select that you should have
