Where can I play a game of bingo in Chestertown, Maryland?

If you've never played bingo, you might be wondering where to start. Bingo is played in venues called bingo halls. A bingo hall could be a venue that just runs bingo games all day, or another venue like a church, school, or fire station could become a bingo hall temporarily to host a bingo game once a month. Because of this, bingo halls can vary a lot in appearance! You might not even realise where your nearest bingo hall is. Despite their differences, once you get inside, most bingo halls will be set out roughly the same. There will be somewhere for the bingo caller to stand or sit, and tables and chairs for the players. There will also be somewhere to get your bingo cards. The venues may look different on the outside, but after all, bingo is bingo!

What happens during a game of bingo?

Because bingo is a fast-paced game, it can look pretty intimidating if you've never played! In reality, bingo is quite simple to pick up, once you know the rules. Whether you're a beginner or just looking to brush up on your bingo knowledge, check out this easy guide so you'll know just what to expect from a typical bingo game! Arriving a little early is always a good idea for bingo. This gives you time to get your cards and find a seat without having to rush. If you arrive after the game has started, you'll have to wait for the next round to join in! When the game is ready to start, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern; this tells players which squares on their bingo card they must mark in order to win. Then they will begin to draw and call the numbers one by one. Players mark the number on their cards if they have it. The first player to match all of the squares for the winning pattern must shout BINGO before the next number is called; this is how to stop the game and win your prize.
