Game description

This getting to know Bingo is a variation of the classic Bingo, which is especially popular in the US and England. This game was invented by Bingo Lowe in 1929 after he observed a group of Spanish lottery players and how they covered the number they drew with beans. The one winning the lottery would scream, “Beano”, from which the name Bingo is derived. With this getting-to-know Bingo, everybody receives a piece of paper where he writes down the name of a favourite person in the room. Now, each one has to find this particular person, whose name he put down and find out as many as possible characteristics of this child. Winner is who got the most characteristics.


The winner is who found out the most characteristics about one single person. Following the original Bingo, the winner could get a small reward.
