Why do women play bunco? Bunco is a silly and fun dice game that requires about as much skill as finger painting. Seriously, bunco is really all about sharing the warmth, good feelings, good times, stories, great food & beverages, laughing, and feeling wonderful.
I like nothing more than getting together with the girls and sharing some drinks, laughter and girl talk. Like poker night for the guys, bunko night is an opportunity for the gals to take a break from the everyday routine and spend time with friends and enjoy a lot of silly laughter, games, food and drinks.
The real point to joining or starting a bunco group is to get together for companionship, connection, and fun. Sound like your kind of thing?
So, what are you waiting for? Here are the instructions on How to play bunco!
Part 2 - Five steps to organizing an amazing bunco group
Are you excited to get your friends together and start playing bunco, but really confused about how to get things started?
Today I’m going to share with you my 5 secrets to organizing an unforgettable bunco group.
Step 1. Find Festive Friends. This will probably be the hardest part. Finding 11 friends who want to have a fun time is easy. But finding 11 friends who can commit to playing every month can be more difficult.
One approach is to invite 3 of your fiends who you already know want to join, and them ask each of them to invite 3 friends.
This way you will end up with a like-minded group of 13 players; the required 12 players and an alternate.
Step 2. Chose The Perfect Night. Email a quick poll to all you new bunco buddies, and ask them what night of the week they are available. Then decide which week of the month is best. For example, my group meets the second Thursday night of each month.
Step 3 – Scheduling Your First Bunco Party. Once you’ve established a time to hold your parties each month, it’s time to get rolling. Plan to host the first bunco party yourself. Purchase bunco invitations early or send out free email invitations from evite.com
Be sure to include a copy of the bunco rules with your invitation, so any new players will have a chance to review them before the party. You can print a free copy of the bunco rules from our site.
Step 4 – Make Up A Group Roster and Plan Upcoming Parties. Create a roster with columns for names email, phone numbers, hosting month, and, if your interested in holding themed bunco parties, make a column for themes.
You can copy and paste our “player roster” for free directly from our site at www.buncogameshop.com
Have the blank roster on-hand at your first bunco party and ask each player to fill in their contact information, and choose which month (and theme if any) they would like to host a party.
Email a copy of the completed roster to your group after your first party.
Step 5 – Get Ready. Review the game rules and be prepared to explain them to your group on the first night.
Plan your menu and tell your guests about any theme for the party, and, if you would like, ask your group for help with appetizers or drinks when you send out your invitation.
Now is also the time to purchase your game supplies, and decide your game table layout.
Then, just relax, and count down the days until the girls get together for some fun, laughter, and silly rolling of the dice!
