According to the World Bunco Association, Bunco began as a progressive dice game in England, later being imported to the American West as a gambling activity. Wait, wait, wait! Hold on now, what exactly can I win and how? When my grandmother tells me she is meeting up with the girls for some Bunco fun she is out there competing for awesome winnings! Sign me up Grandma!
Let the party begin! Here’s a classic dice game designed for anywhere from 4 to 12 players. No matter how many people are rolling, the point is always the same: to roll a Bunco (three consecutive rolls in which the number currently in play appears). The Bunco bell sounds, the fuzzy die is passed, and the pace gets more and more hectic. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it’s a great excuse for a party. Standout parts of the set are the giant fuzzy 3.25-inch black die and the Bunco game bell–so loud and professional-sounding, you could use it at the front desk of a hotel or dry-cleaning establishment (or to call the household to dinner) when you’re not playing Bunco.
