30 min3 participants

Let's play!

  1. Bingo Caller : Pick 2 bricks from the bowl.

  2. Bingo Caller : Read the 2 numbers aloud.

  3. Other players : Add the numbers together.

  4. Other players : Check your bingo card for the sum of the two numbers.

  5. Other players : Shout "Bingo !" if you have the number.

  6. The first player who finds all 3 numbers wins!

How to prepare

  • 2 base plates

  • 2 number sign bricks

  • All number bricks

  • 1 bowl

Place the number sign brick on the top left corner of each base plate to indicate the bricks represent numbers.

Create a bingo card with a base plate for each player: write 3 numbers (from 1 to 17) on each one, ensuring there are no duplicate numbers.

Place the remaining bricks in the bowl.

Designate a player to be the “bingo caller”.

Facilitation tips

  • The “bingo caller” has an important role: reminders to speak loudly and clearly so that all players can hear the correct numbers.

  • Give everyone a chance to be the ”bingo caller”.

Possible variations

  • Change the numbers of bricks picked from the bowl.

  • Change the numbers of bricks on the base plate.

  • Vary the type of math operation.

  • Omit the math operation to search for single numbers.
