Summer Fun Bingo

599 posts in this topic

I don't know about you, but there's nothing I like better than sitting in a crowded Bingo hall with my dauber poised and ready for the fun of Bingo to begin. I haven't been able to get to the Bingo hall lately so I thought I'd bring Bingo here. (Everyone knows I'm here all the time anyway, right?)

Interested in playing? Of course you are! Pick 25 of the 80 words listed below and send them in an email to me at jenniferf@scrapgirls.com. Please make the subject of your email "BINGO Card" and include your Scrap Girls forum user name. You have until midnight EST on Friday, June 3th to sign up for the first round of Bingo! Any emails received after that will be included in the next round of Bingo. You do not have to register for each round of Bingo once you are playing. Your card is good through all the rounds.

On Saturday, June 4th, I'll start calling words 5 at a time and keeping calling 5 words a day until someone posts that they have a Bingo. What's a Bingo? Good question. You have a Bingo when I've called 15 of your 25 words. If the Bingo is valid (which I'll verify using the emails that you've sent me), we'll clear our cards and start over.

Want to know what you're playing for? Each winner will receive a $10.00 shopping certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

In honor of the first day of summer, June 21st, all the words below have to do with summer fun, whether it be camping, foods, family reunions, picnics, or a day at the beach, water park, amusement park, or county fair.

Wow, just like that final game of bingo when I used to go to the play with my mom and sisters, :) They called it blackout there, so maybe I'll get one, lol. I like it this way oh so much better, no ink dauber on my hands and the calling isn't done as fast, :) Great Idea for a fun game for sure! :)

Nelly,
Here's how I did it. I have this window open with the Jennifer's Post about the bingo. Then I opened a NEW MESSAGE email box. She put her address in this post. Then I started picking from her list and adding them to my message box until I had 25 words. Mail it to her and don't forget to keep a copy for yourself to play. Looks like fun! :bouncing-frog:

I copied and pasted the whole list and then just deleted until I got to 25 :-)

And when I played this before online, I kept a copy of the email in my drafts folder, then I could just open it, mark it off, and close it/save it each day. Just make sure there's no one in the "to" field so you don't accidently send it off LOL!

My suggestion would be to print out a copy of the email you send me (or two or three, depending on how many rounds we get in) and mark them off as we go.

I know, I know...why's a digi-scrapper suggesting you do something on paper? Shoot me now! :walkinghelmet:

I just got mine sent in, this was such a great idea for sure. :) I won a few times at real bingo, but never have a played it online, lol, so we'll see how it works out. Good luck everyone and oh, by the way, no tips at this bingo came, so I guess that will make dh very please since i used to buy so many of those, lol.

I had to edit this post because I was meaning to also add that the tips I get here are free and far better than the ones I used to pay for at the real bingo, lol.

V, when you say tips, do you mean those addicting little pull games? We call them instants. Ummm....wonder how I could work those into here?

L, like we need any excuse for a party?!? This place is a non-stop party ride!

I'll be calling the words here (in this topic thread) each day somewhere between 11 am and 1 pm EST, depending on when the DS decides to take his nap, so that our overseas friends as well as our west coasters have a relatively equal opportunity to call Bingo first.

Yeah, those pull tab things, we called them tips, lol. I'm sure we could all think of some tips to add in here, lol. Maybe with each call of the bongo words add a little quote or something as a tip, lol. :blondmoment: :rofl:

:blondmoment: Being the person I am I actually typed in bongo instead of Bingo, :rofl: I am making this edited post to say I caught that after the fact of hitting the thing to post, but I decided to leave it as a kind of thing like I'm not perfect but I can be extremely silly, especially at 4 in the morning, lol.
