How to create your own movie night bingo game
So, we have established what movie night bingo is, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and see how you can create your own version!
The whole thing works by creating a card for every player with the same amount of squares in a grid. You choose how many but a good idea is to create a 5×5 grid, so 25 squares altogether.
Then, when you have your grids drawn up on all your cards, you can start to fill in movie scenarios. Make sure that they are all fairly commonplace and universal, otherwise, it could be a really boring game of movie night bingo!
Once this is done, make sure all players have a pen or marker for their cards (popcorn can be a great marker! Just make sure not to eat it all!) and then you can start the movie!
For families, Disney and Pixar movies are always ideal for movie night bingo, whilst adult-only games might be better suited to thriller or even horror movies!
And there you have it! Movie night bingo can be a great way to experience the fun of bingo in a social atmosphere with friends/family! What are you waiting for? Eyes down, as they say in the bingo biz!
