What You Need:

To get prolonged use from the bingo game, you might consider laminating the bingo boards and bingo cards.

Preparation:

• Print off the bingo cards and cut the out along the dashed lines.
• print out the bingo boards, and cut each bingo board out along the dashed lines.
• Before play begins, each player gets one bingo board.
• Have a player mix up (shuffle) the bingo cards well and afterwards put them all in a pile face-down on the table in the middle of the players.

How to Play 2 Digit Addition Bingo:

If you're familiar with how to play traditional Bingo, math Bingo will be a piece of cake for you!. The winner is the first player who has 5 spaces in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row covered (the row must be) on their Bingo card.

1) At the beginning of the game, each player selects an addition Bingo card and places a marker on the Free Space square.

Decide which player will be the caller for the first round of play. After that, going clockwise, players take turns at being the caller.

2) The caller picks up and turns over the top card from the face-down off the pile, and reads the question. Players will then work out the problem on their scratch paper and then look to see if the answer is on their bingo card. If so, they cover the answer with on of their markers. If not, they do nothing.

After the caller reads the card, the card is then placed aside in a discard pile. After all of the face-down cards are pulled and added to the discard pile, the discard pile is then shuffled by the next caller and turned face-down again so play can continue.

3) Play continues in the same way with the caller reading the next card.

4) As soon as a player covers five squares in a row, vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, the yell "BINGO", and they win!

*Important* At this point, the player/s who called "BINGO" will need to have their five markers in a row checked by one or more of the other players to ensure that the five spaces covered each match up to an equation card in the discard pile. Once that's verified, that player is the Winner! If not, the player/s must remove those five markers, and the game continues as before.

Sometimes there can be more than one winner: if two players call "BINGO" at the same time. If two or more players call "BINGO" after the same round, the player who calls "BINGO" first is the declared winner. The other player/s who also have five squares covered that same round are the runner-up winners.

## 2 Digit Addition Bingo - Version Two

Here's another version of 2 digit addition bingo that kids also really enjoy. In this version, the addition bingo cards not only have 2 digit addition problems, but they also include some other non-math cards:

• "Skip My Turn"
• "Remove A Marker"

It adds a little twist to regular 2 digit addition bingo, and we think they'll enjoy it too!

How To Play:

The game is played in pretty much the same way as the 2 digit addition bingo game above, except now there are the additional cards we name above: "Skip My Turn", "Skip Your Turn", and "Remove A Marker".

1) At the beginning of the game, each player selects an addition Bingo card and places a marker on the Free Space square.

Choose which player goes first.

2) The first player chooses turns over a card from the face-down pile and reads the addition problem out loud.

3) Like in previous version, players work out the addition problem on their scratch paper and then look to see if the answer is on their bingo card. If so, they cover the answer with on of their markers. If not, they do nothing.

4) The card just read in placed face-down in discard pile in middle of players. After all of the face-down cards are pulled and added to the discard pile, the discard pile is then shuffled by the next caller and turned face-down again so play can continue.

The addition bingo gets interesting now because players have the opportunity to pull the three cards mentioned above. Here are the three scenarios listed below:

• A player chooses the "Skip My Turn" card - the player loses their turn and play goes to the next player.
• A player chooses the "Skip Your Turn" card - the player who pulled the card skips the player of their choosing when that player's next turn comes up. Causing a player to have to skip their turn can be a helpful strategy to skip a player when that player is getting close to having a completed row of markers down on their bingo board.
• A player chooses the "Remove A Marker" - again this an be a helpful strategy to have a player remove one of their markers when that player is getting close to having a completed row of markers. The player who pulls the "Remove A Marker"  gets to choose which marker the other player has to remove from their bingo board.

5) Play continues in the same way and as soon a player covers five squares in a row, vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, they yell "BINGO", and win the game!
