I was also surprised by how intense the whole thing is. It isn't just BINGO (getting 5 in a row), there were MANY rounds and different patterns to get. Plus there were separate boards we would use between each round to try and win a whole separate prize. It was kind of confusing, but the "Caller" explained each round, so we were able to follow along. **Of course gambling is illegal in Utah, so we played for "points," which in turn were giving out in dollars...weird, I know.**
There were many people with multiple sheets and were "dabbing" like crazy...they needed FULL concentration!!! Joe and I tried multiple sheets, but for the first time it was a little overwhelming and I started going cross-eyed looking over each of them. However, we had a great time meeting new people, cracking jokes, snacking on yummy food....PLUS...I won one of the "Blackout" rounds and collected 150 points...err...$150!!!!! Heck yes! Not bad for my first time. ;) BINGO is the first Friday of every month and I think they've got 2 new members. It was a randomly unique evening and ended up fantastic!! Thank you Misti (& Charlene) for the invite - I appreciate the personal 'call out' on my bad moods as of late...dragging me out tonight was the best medicine!
#91's - Joe's sheets and my winning card WITH my winnings!!!!
I bought 2 dabbler's tonight and of course mine was RED!
Guess it was good luck!!
