Where can I play bingo in Cambridge, Maryland?

Bingo is held in venues called bingo halls. Some bingo halls do nothing but bingo; they hold games multiple times a week, and the venue is set up for bingo all the time. Other venues just become a bingo hall temporarily- like when your local church, fire station, or social club holds a bingo fundraiser! There are benefits to both kinds of bingo hall, so it's really a case of deciding which you prefer (or just visit both!). Whether your bingo hall is permanent or temporary, you'll be able to enjoy the fast-paced and exciting game that is bingo. Just choose a hall to visit, refresh yourself on the rules of bingo, and come to a game to have a great time!

How does bingo work?

Bingo may be fast, but it's pretty easy to learn. Whether you're a total beginner or just looking for a refresher, here's a simple guide that will take you through a typical game of bingo. It's always best to arrive a little early for a game of bingo; there are things you'll need to do before you start the game. You'll need to get your bingo cards, pay any fees, and find someplace to sit. Some venues will also offer refreshments that you might like to buy before the game. Once you've found a seat, get your dauber pen ready, and you're all set for the game. Your bingo card will have a 5x5 grid on it, with a number in each square (except the middle one which is blank). When the game is about to begin, the bingo caller will let everyone know the winning pattern. The winning pattern is which squares on your bingo card you need to mark in order to win. Sometimes this is a full house (every square), or a line, or a shape like an arrow. It could be anything, so make sure you know what you're aiming for! The caller will then draw numbers one by one and shout them out. The players mark the number if they have it on their card. The first player to mark every box for the winning pattern must quickly shout BINGO to win!
