I have been drawing a blank lately about which Bunco topic to write about next. My group held their monthly Bunco meeting last Sunday. It was a fun Valentines Day themed game. Anyhow, one of our regular players brought a guest from out of town to play with us. The lady is a member of a Bunco group in her hometown. She made a comment to me that our group was very friendly and welcoming and noted that her group is focused primarily on ‘winning’ the game. It got me thinking, is that how most groups are? I have played with two groups and both have been mainly about socializing with playing Bunco a nice bonus.
I am the organizer of my Bunco group and I try my best to keep the game going and yet have people socializing. For the most part my group is very social but there are a few who prefer not to socialize much. They are usually the ones who say, ‘ding, ding, ding’ when the head table is talking and not starting to play when they want them to. If you play Bunco regularly you know what I am talking about:) Our games usually start at 2 pm on a Sunday and I have a rough schedule that I like to follow to try to keep all personality types happy. People start to arrive at 2 pm and then we have a potluck meal until about 2:45 pm at which time the game starts. We play two rounds of Bunco and then have a dessert break. This break is typically 15 minutes and then we play one more round of Bunco, distribute the prizes and then play an (optional) game of Left Center Right. From start to finish it is about three hours (give or take a few minutes).
Does your Bunco group have a ‘schedule’ that they follow? Are you a group who likes to socialize? Let me know on the Bunco Game Shop Facebook Page.
This month we are giving away a cute pair of dice earrings! The ladies in my group love these! Just head to the Bunco Game Shop Facebook page and tell me about the personality of your Bunco group! Also, if your minimum purchase at Bunco game Shop qualifies, you can add a pair of dice earrings to your cart for free!
Keep Calm & Play Bunco,
