Play Bingo, Keep on Top of Election Results

Anxious about election returns? Normally, we’d suggest an optionally alcoholic drinking game, but tonight we’ve declared liberty and bingo for all.

Download and print out special bingo sheets [1] to play along while you frantically watch the states go blue or red. The game is a bit different than your average bingo, and here’s how to play:

As the state results arrive, a token of the winning party’s color is placed on corresponding state stamps.

By the end of the night, all electoral votes will be pledged, and all spots on all cards will be filled in. Players recieve (sic) a “Bingo” when they have five of the same color token in a row. The score for this achievement is the sum of the electoral votes cast by those states. This is the number indicated at bottom right of each state stamp.

Red and blue Bingo’s count together for each card. A player’s final score is discovered by adding together all Bingo scores.

Hooray electoral college! Meanwhile, we’ll be blogging up a storm [2] while you have all the laughs.
