Purse Bingo...

Have you guys ever heard of "purse bingo" before? I recently saw advertised in our newspaper that a local place was having "Designer Purse Bingo." I love purses (what girl doesn't, right!?) and thought what is purse bingo? Well it's an event where a bunch of women gather to play bingo, usually for a certain cause and you can win fun prizes like designer purses, sponsored products from home party distributors and other fun, girly merchandise.

I must go to one of these events in the near future. Can you imagine getting your girlfriends together and just having a little girls day/night out, playing some fun bingo and winning awesome prizes such as a designer purse. Sounds like a blast to me!

I've also heard of  "purse bingo" played at bridal showers or a fun get together to break the ice and get the party started. Unlike standard bingo, where players fill in game-card spaces that match numbers called at random, purse bingo players aren't given a game piece --because they bring their own. Each participant uses her own purse as the playing card, with the goal of being the last player standing in this party game.

How to play "Purse Bingo" at a party --rules and instructions...

  • Instruct the caller to shout out an item that might be found in an average purse. Start with common items, such as a wallet, makeup or phone. Then, move to less common purse items, such as mints, headache medication or tissues.

  • Check the items presented by the players, with each active player removing the called item from her purse and holding it up for inspection.

  • Tell any players who do not have the most recent called item to sit down. They are now out of play.

  • Have the caller continue naming off items, one by one, gradually decreasing the likelihood an item would be in a purse. Keep calling out items until only a single player, the winner, remains standing.

  • Reward the winner of the game with a party gift.

I don't  know about you, but the next time I see "Designer Purse Bingo" advertised that I am definitely gathering some girlfriends together and going! Purse Bingo at a shower sounds like so much fun too, will you have everything you need in your purse to win?
