Here's how it will work. If you want to play, your payment to play is a fat quarter per card. That means you can play more than one card, but up to 4. So, no more than 4 cards. You send me the fat quarters. (I will not play, I'm just the hostess) I will send you a bingo/quilt cards that I've custom made, with the Internets help of course. You can print your bingo card and mark on it, or you can leave it in the word text it's in and highlight each number daily with word. No need in sending me the cards back once you have bingo because I have the cards numbered and they are all different and once I send you a card, I'll assign your name to it. You can keep using that card over and over, or if you request a new card, I can do that as well. I also have a call out sheet, so once you tell me you have bingo I'll compare your card to the sheet. Got it??
I will let you know before I start calling numbers what the pattern to win bingo will be. I have a random # generator and once it chooses a # my call sheet will tell me the letter. Like I said, I'm using QUILT instead of BINGO. So, it will be like Q7 and so on. I'll post the random #'s for all to see. I'll do Bingo post separate from my other post. When you get bingo, leave a comment on the latest bingo post and I'll compare your card with the call out sheet.
We if have 10 people playing (or more cards) that's how many fat quarters you'll receive. I will be in charge of mailing to the winner. Sound easy enough? Let me know what you all think? I'm pretty sure I have it all ironed out. Deadline to let me know you'd like to play will be Aug 10th. I'd like to start the game on Aug 15th. That will give you all plenty of time to get your fat quarters to me and for me to get your cards to you.
Please, any questions....let me know. I don't want to miss anything. I think this will be fun.
*Note: I will email the Bingo cards. That way for my UK players and anyone they will have the cards quickly and not wait for the mail.
Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm not into bingo, however what a great idea to make your blog more fun. I must say, it's a great blog just as it is. Just wanted you to know that.ReplyDelete
I think that it will be fun, but I am so busy this summer, that I won't be able to join in. Good luck with it!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great game! Count me in. I'll mail my fat quarter to you ASAP.ReplyDelete
I'll probably be in, but I have the grandkids (TWO of them at once) for a solid week the week of August 17....get one of them earlier on the 12th) so I know I won't be keeping up with blogs then. I see Sara said about mailing her fat quarter but it's FOUR we need to send, right?ReplyDelete
I would love to play! The 15th is the day we leave for the beach, but if I know my kids, ther. will be a minimum of 3 laptops for me to chooe from. Count me in. Thanks for your help in getting my blog off the ground.ReplyDelete
No Pat, you send as many fat quarters as cards you want to play, up to 4. So, if you want one card, send 1 fat quarter, 2 cards 2 fat quarters.....ReplyDelete
Hi Tonya, The one problem i see is that to post you FQ & you post card if it overseas players then it may be delayed as i know sometimes it can take 10-14 days one way from the UK to the USA & AustraliaReplyDelete
Well, if I have anyone from overseas I can extend it.ReplyDelete
I'd love to play. I love bingo, so I will love Quilt. I will send you 2-4 FQs. How long will we be playing?ReplyDelete
Sounds like fun to me....did I miss an address to send the fat quarters to you?ReplyDelete
I'd love to play! Please count me in.ReplyDelete
what a great fun idea, I would love to join, send me your address for the fat quarter, just one card please for me. I am in UK by the way, hope that wont be a problem. Maybe you could 'send' the card by email too, that would be OK surely.
