Arriving early is a safe bet for bingo. You'll need to get your bingo cards before the game starts, and it's nice to chat to your fellow players before everyone's silent for eyes-down. A bingo card has a grid on it, 5x5 with random numbers (1-75) in the boxes. The middle box is blank. As the game starts, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern. This tells you which boxes on your grid you have to mark to win the game. Then the bingo caller begins to draw and shout numbers. Mark the number on your card if you have it. The first player to mark all the boxes for the winning pattern must quickly shout BINGO! You must be quick; your call has to come before the next number is drawn, or you lose your prize!
