First, you see no letters. No, you don’t a row of letters along the top informing you of what game you are playing – you’ve got to figure it out all by yourself. Next, you have 9 columns and 3 rows of numbers. You have two ways to win: you either get a line straight across or a full house. Each game has two parts and when you win, you don’t shout “BINGO!” you call “YES, ERIC!” or “HEREY’ARE!” When you win, rather than shoot you dirty looks, the people cheer, as they did for me three times last night! —Moira Richardson —BINGO, British Style (Literary Tease)
A great post from a student of mine who’s been traipsing through Europe. A nicely fleshed-out, informative feature.
