What makes bingo Pirate Bingo?
When all the prizes are gone, Bingo-ers get to steal prizes from other players. The only way to keep your booty safe is to black out!
- One card per player
- First person to bingo gets to choose a prize from the prize table, and no one should clear their card. This continues until either all the prizes have been claimed, or someone blacks out (fills every place on their card).
- Once all the prizes on the table have been claimed, players who Bingo get to take a prize from another player.
- A prize can only change hands once per turn, no matter how many people Bingo on that turn. (So claim your prize quickly!)
- All prizes must remain on the table, in clear view, throughout the game. When a player blacks out, he or she may choose one prize to secure--blackout prizes cannot be stolen and should be moved off the table.
- The caller will determine when cards should be cleared, and will give a three-number warning as the end nears.
- The caller will announce a final round, at which point all cards should be cleared. The first to Bingo may choose any available prize, and the game is over. Players keep all prizes in their possession, and the post-game bartering begins!
