How to play bowling bingo
Setting up the game: Preparing for a strike
Before you start, each player needs a bingo card with bowling actions like "Strike," "Spare," "Gutter Ball," "Split," "Two Strikes in a Row," and other common bowling outcomes. You can easily create these cards using Bingo Card Creator for a customized experience.
At the bowling alley: The pin challenge
- Rolling into action: As you play your standard game of bowling, keep an eye on the bingo card.
- Alley call-outs: Mark off actions on your bingo card as they happen - a strike, a spare, or the dreaded gutter ball.
- Bingo on the lanes: The first player to complete a row or pattern shouts "Bingo!" Maybe they win an extra game or a round of snacks.
Family bowling night: The home alley
- Mini-bowling setup: If you're at home, set up a mini bowling game. Even improvised pins and a ball can work.
