Classic 5×5 Dog Bingo Game
This version of the game is a spin-off of the classic bingo game. It relies primarily on luck and paying attention.
The caller picks one of the call-out cards and announces the dog’s name, then shows the picture around. Players check their cards and mark the dog if available on their cards.
The game continues until a player gets a complete row of marked squares, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The first player to get a complete row shouts “Bingo!” and wins the game.
Educational 4×4 Dog Bingo Game
This version of the game is an educational spin-off of the classic bingo game. It focuses more on recognition and reaction and less on luck.
The game contains 30 bingo cards. As you will see, when looking through the game, there are three distinct types of bingo cards—type 1 features both the picture of a dog breed and its name, type 2 features only the pictures, and type 3 features only the name. The same is true for call-out cards: some have a picture of a dog breed and its name, some only have pictures, and some only have names.
By creating different combinations of bingo cards and call-out cards, you can modify the level of game complexity and create a perfect educational bingo game for your situation. There are a couple of rulesets described in the game, and you can make more.
