Baby shower bingo is one of the most games to play at a baby shower, but how do you play it?
Baby shower bingo is great to keep the energy high during the present opening phase of the shower. Whilst its one of the most popular games played sometimes it’s clear on how to actually play the game.
Well look no further, we have put this quick start guide together to make it easy for you to understand and follow through.
First of all, a typical bingo card includes a grid of 5×5 squares with the center square normally marked as free.
You can buy game cards that are prefilled with items already, but what can be even more fun is to get your guests to fill in the cards based on what they think the future mommy-to-be will receive as gifts.
There are many different versions of the game, but we are going to give you 3 different ways in which baby shower bingo can be played.
1. First to fill a row (horizontally or vertically)
This is probably the shortest form of the game
Every guest gets a game card if you choose the blank version of the card your guests will need to fill it in before the game has started.
The first person to fill a row either horizontally or vertically shouts ‘BINGO!!!!’ which means they win the game
The winner of the game is normally given a prize, so have a think before the shower about what you would like to give out as a prize. It could be as small as a chocolate bar or something more elaborate like a bottle of wine or champagne.
Depends on your budget and baby shower theme.
2. Rows then full house
This version is played exactly like before. Except for when the first person wins a row the game does not end.
After you have found the first winner, the game continues for the first person to get a ‘full house’, which means that the winner has to have all of their boxes crossed off on their game card.
Again it is customary to award the winner a prize.
When playing this version it is recommended that the prize for winning a row is less in value than the prize for the full house.
3. Full House
As you have you probably guessed already, as explained earlier the winner of the game is the one that crosses allow of their boxes off first.
Be sure that the winner receives a prize at the end!
