Bingo is the game that won’t fail you. All you need to do is join in the party and play the game that won’t fail you. As the legend has it, there once existed a game called Beano. The game was played with dried beans, and the player had to shout ‘bingo’ in order to mark the boxes that the numbers are going to appear.
The game became a big hit, and so the name was changed to Bingo. The game of Bingo is simple to play. You are given a sheet of paper with one or more bingo boxes on them. On the sheet, you will find a number written. As the numbers are called out, you place a covering over the number where it occurs. If the number occurs in the same box, you mark the box. The next number is simply called ‘bingo.’ Once you have a number marked off, you call out ‘domino88‘ and you win the game.
The rules of Bingo are easy to follow. The caller starts the game by calling out a number. Depending on the dice roll, the first person to have that number marked off is the winner. The game begins with every player having a different number. The Bingo number is called out at random. The players then put a covering over their numbers to mark them. A player has a maximum of 60 cards in front of them, and a player can have up to 60 ‘outs’ while the game is in progress.
The majority of Bingo games played today is done in the United Kingdom. The United States is slowly becoming more popular at the casinos and Bingo halls.
So what is a coverall? When you hear the word coverall, you think of heavy protectingights: rain, hail or shine, cold or warm weather, day or night. Coverall has nothing to do with weather conditions, but with protecting something or someone. In this case, the ‘coverall’ is used to protect a board or Winnings.
The best way to understand the rules of covering is to imagine what it would be like to have a heavy rain throughout the day. Everyone takes a coverall to their window to muffle the rain. At school, chalk falls the last to mark the board for the board we are trying to hide. At work, a colleague places a wet volleyball on her desk to hide the spillage from confidential materials. Go outside and heavy downpices may fall. Now you need a waterproof coverall to protect your windows.
The rules of covering a number are this:
- The outside covering must be at least 2 inches in diameter or larger.
- The inner surface of the covering must be flat and wide enough to fit over the number without the corners poking out.
- There must be a bleed of paper between the inner and outer areas of the covering. This is known as a pucker.
- You must use two cards to cover each of the numbers.
- You can not use more than two cards to mark a number, you must use only the two cards.
- Once a number has been marked, you cannot move it there before future play.
The inside of the coverall is another story.
This area is where the ’10 Spot’ is usually marked. This is where the Bingo player would usually mark a ‘B’ for hole, ‘Chat’ button or ‘Bingo quick-link’ in the B column and a ‘N’ in the N column. So, by using this area, the player is actually hoping the numbers will be called evenly throughout the night.
A coverall restricting the use of the inside of the card and forbids the use of numbers in the gaps between the numbers is also popular. The only rule with this rule is that players can produce a new card for a particular game in the middle of a regular game.
A prop player may ask for a ‘chat’ card to beinky to identify certain individual numbers when these are called. This goes to the heart of the English rhyming slang that permeates all ages, indeed all walks of life. One says, “Here’s a kink in the ice-cream, let’s play :oops!”
Some sites will have a card dedicated to the chat room host or leadistent online. This is usually a golden opportunity for a game of psychological or even emotional warfare and do remember that the less readable and easily spotted these chat rooms, the better!
One of the stairs to the glamour and glitz of villainy!
