“Bingo addicts, eh? I’ve carried your type before and we don’t get along. Oh, I agree with your values and your goals and your methods, but somehow we just never click on a personal level.”
We have FIVE bingo events for you in and around DC including three weekly events and an authentic bingo experience with senior citizens!
Didn’t have any bingo photos on hand so enjoy these good boyes at a birthday party instead!
Fun Bingo Facts
#1 Bingo sticks are called daubers
Daubers are a specialized type of pen that used to mark bingo cards. When their number is called, a player will use the pen to mark the card. Each pen has a special tip which marks the paper with a circle or other mark.
#2 It used to be called Beano
Before the dauber was invented, bingo players used beans to mark their cards. This is where the name Beano came from.
#3 It’s the most popular game in the world
Over 8% of the world’s population enjoys playing bingo. Most bingo players are women and most online bingo players are between the ages of 35 and 40.
