There are many different rules when it comes to the game of bunco Knowing them all is relatively impossible. However, if you follow these general bunco guidelines, you will be on your way to claiming your prize.
The first thing to do is designate a head table. The head table will have a bell and one fuzzy die, tiara, or boa. All the tables will have 3 dice, a tally pad, and each person will have their own bunco score sheet and pencil. Next, you’ll want to look across the table. This person is your temporary partner, but you must remember not to trust them too much, they won’t be your partner for long.
To start off, the head table will ring the bell. The starting person at each table will then start to roll the dice. Each time a one shows up, the player will get a point. Once a one doesn’t show up, the turn is over. If you are lucky enough to roll 3 ones, be sure to yell BUNCO for everyone to hear, try to ignore their jealous remarks. When you roll the bunco, you will be given the fuzzy die, tiara, or boa to parade around in, 21 points on your score sheet, and full bragging rights. If you happen to roll 3 of a kind, other than ones, you get a funco. You will receive five points for each funco.
Once a team at the head table reaches a score of 21, the bell is rung. At this point, it’s time for the game to stop and everyone to switch places. This is where it can become a little confusing. The winning team at each table will remain at the table, but one person will move one seat. Two new players will join the table and each player will have a different partner. The losing team at each table will have to move to another table and get new partners. Get on your game face and prepare for another round.
Now, the head table will again ring the bell and the starting player will roll the dice again. This time you will be rolling for twos. Bunco gameplay will continue this way until you have gone through all six numbers on the dice, four times for a total of 24 rounds.
Now that you know the rules of the game, it’s time to get rolling on towards your victory.
