Enjoy a game of virtual bingo with your friends at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay! Join us for a virtual themed bingo on the First Friday of each month. Check the registration link for this month’s theme. There will be a variety of games starting with traditional five in a row, then specialty games like Postage Stamp, Four Corners, Kite, and finally a full game of Coverall. Instructions about the game variants and how-to will be reviewed prior to the game starting. Winners of each round will receive prizes!
How to Play
The bingo cards and Zoom chat invite will be sent out at 4:00 pm on the day of the event. Open Zoom a few minutes before the meeting starts to set up your camera and microphone. You do not need to purchase a Zoom account to participate in the meeting but you may be asked to sign up for a free Zoom account.
We encourage everyone to plan ahead for the best way to manage their Bingo cards while participating in the chat on your laptop or another mobile device. Some ideas are:
- Print your card(s) and use something temporary to cover the numbers for each game (M&Ms, Pennies, Chocolate Chips)
- Open the bingo Card(s) on your tablet or phone while you use Zoom on your computer or vice versa
- Minimize the Zoom window on your computer and open the bingo card(s) in separate windows to line them up on the right side of your screen
- Let us know any other great ideas you have!
Sponsorships for individual games will start at $500. This includes your company name on the board, multiple mentions throughout the game, sharing links to your website, and an opportunity to play up to a 45-second commercial. Please message Josh Hagg at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are interested in sponsoring a game.
