Time For BBQ Bingo & Drive In Bingo
Posted by Jason Dale
We like trying new things here on Loquax and this week we launch another new feature - a week in bingo. Basically we scour through Twitter and unearth some bingo related gems. Hopefully we'll remember to do this on a regular basis or at least until another portal half inches the idea and fobs it off as their own. Anyway this week we've discovered Drive-In games, a BBQ card and that playing is quite stressful.
Our new feature kicks off with the old myth that playing bingo is for old people. Sadly even today's teenagers believe the beautiful game is for the older generation, or at least anyone over 19 - which on reflection is probably correct.
@Ashton5SOS you only have like a month left of teenagerism then you'll be all old, have you signed up for bingo yet? Becca :-) (@Beccax5sos) June 9, 2014
Everyone loves to play a variation of bingo including the Marie Claire social media team. We'd love to see what else they have to cross off on their music festival cards!
Watched James Blake in VIP with Marie Claires social media team yesterday which Im pretty sure is a square on a music festival bingo card. Max Mertens (@Max_Mertens) June 9, 2014
Carlsberg don't do bingo days but if they did... well we're not sure about the segway or Arial (?) adventure but we do like the idea of a lush dinner.
I've had such an awesome day @haven ! An hour segway, 1/2 hour Arial adventure, lush dinner and then won bingo! Now drinks with friends :) Emma (@crazywithtwins) June 6, 2014
Mr_Bingo on Twitter isn't necessarily related to the traditional game but we like to follow him as every now and then he comes up with some fun ideas. Some of which are for family viewing. Someone should sign up Kriss Akabussi to endorse their bingo brand ASAP!!!
Imagine if for one day, every car horn in the world was replaced with the sound of @krissakabusi shouting "AWOOGA". Mr Bingo (@Mr_Bingo) June 6, 2014
One of the strangest tweets of the week is this one from @TheWrongWong. We love the look of their cupcakes but Drive-In Bingo what ever next? We'd rather join @crazywithtwins on their Segway! Anyway we're going to take a look further into this drive-in game.
Who says bingo TV advertising doesn't work...
Always fab to see @Alexbkirk on an advert. Bet it wasn't as much fun as sun bingo sun bingo dot co dot uk. lizzieroper (@lizzieroper) June 1, 2014
Mind you we're not quite sure what @emma_sandersonx is playing to make her game so stressful. Was she stuck on 1TG when she did this tweet or is there a Hunger Games version that we don't know about?
Omg bingo is so stressful Emma Sanderson (@emma_sandersonx) June 1, 2014
The sun has got his hat on and that means everyone dusts down the BBQ. Kudos to The Co-Op for coming up with a BBQ bingo card just in time for the undercooked chicken and burnt on the outside, pink in the middle sausage season.
How quickly do you score off your bingo card at your next family barbecue? We give it 20 minutes. pic.twitter.com/bYoXncdlqH The Co-operativeFood (@CooperativeFood) May 31, 2014
