Japanese Cultural Bingo Gaming
Fine online bingo halls are unlikely to offer cultural bingo games just yet, but plans are afoot to extend their gaming offerings to include such player favourites. Japanese cultural bingo takes some of the more popular Japanese terms and idioms and makes a game of it.
The bingo caller has definitions of the corresponding words on each of the players' bingo cards. Instead of numbers are Japanese words written in English. The bingo caller would call out as many definitions as necessary (with players matching the words) and the first to complete a horizontal line, vertical line or diagonal would win a prize. Examples of such words include kimono, saki, Kansai, Kyoto, mame, ame, chan and more.
Japanese bingo gaming is typically played on 5 X 5 bingo cards. Bingo card makers can be used to create these cards, but it's preferable to make a unique card for each and every player. The middle square in the grid can be gifted to players a free 'number' so that players only need to match up 4 blocks to hit bingo.
