Everyone loves a good, fun game of bingo, but let's face it -- sometimes it can get pretty boring. We've all been there; sitting in that cold metal folding chair with your grandmother on a Saturday night in the local bingo hall desperately hoping the caller shouts out G-56 so you can dominate the Ladies Auxiliary for the thirteenth consecutive time.
Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, whatever. Like I was saying: Bingo is fun, but it needs to be taken up a notch.
Well, today is your lucky day, because I've found a way to spice it up a little.
We're gonna play Mike Shula Bingo y'all!
Below you will see your bingo card, but before we get to that let's go over the rules because this isn't your ordinary bingo. (It's impossible to play bingo with one card because everyone would win at the same time, and that's no fun.)
How do you play Mike Shula Bingo? Is it hard? Well, I'm glad you asked. Playing Mike Shula Bingo is easy, and there are only three rules:
1. While watching a Panthers game, simply place a marker (coin, button, etc.) on each space when the scenario occupying the space happens during the game. (Note: There is one free space in the center, just like on a traditional bingo card.)
2. Once you form a straight line of five spaces (horizontal, vertical or diagonal), you have to shout SHULA! and take a shot of the alcohol of your choice. (Note: If you're playing with beer, substitute a shot with one can/bottle.)
3. After you've taken your shot, you have two choices: a) clear the board and start over, or b) try to fill the entire board. If you fill the entire board, you have to finish your alcoholic beverage. (Note: If you're playing with beer, you must finish the six pack, twelve pack, case, etc.)
Sounds easy enough, right?
Now that we have the rules out of the way, let's take a look at the game board (click to embiggen):
As you can see, there are a lot of opportunities for you to get a SHULA! Now all you have to do is get some friends, buy some alcohol and wait for the Panthers to play this Sunday, and you can have a fun filled afternoon of quality entertainment!
