Who Plays Bunco? Share your creativity...

Recommended Posts

Spring Break Bunco got a little nuts this year. We all wore our favorite SB t-shirts (you know the air-brushed bad boys). The hostess had all drunk junk food...White Castles, Cheetos, etc. We were doing beer bongs off the back porch, which is interesting with a group of 30 year olds. She also covered all of the chairs with beach towels and had bras and bathing suits hanging from everything! It really took us back to '99!

It really is fun and a great way to meet new people. We have a core group of about 6-8 die-hard attendees, but each month the hostess will invite someone else, a family member, co-worker, a neighbor, etc. We will have people as subs who fill in when we need more players. When we first started there were about 6 people I barley new but were friends of friends. We've been playing every month for over 2 years.

 

The game is easiest when palyed in groups of 4, but you can play with a "ghost" if you are short. If we are over (e.g. we have 9 or 13) we will "shadow" someone and rotate in and out.

 

I think I have our rules typed somewhere that explains all of our crazy rules and traditions. It sounds complicated but it really isn't. The game is designed to be played with one hand while you are eating/drink/talking with the other.

 

If you are interested PM me and I'll find it for you.

Wow...lots of great info!! I like how if you roll 3 ones it wipes out the score!!! That is awesome! :) I need to revamp my rules....

 

I was wondering if anyone plays at a restaurant and if so how the food works so it's not crazy expensive since a few of my peeps are living at home w/ parents and don't really want to over take their house...

We've never played at a restaurant. We get way to wild and loud. We also have smokers who take a long break between games.

 

We played at a neighborhood bar once but got in trouble because we play for cash, which I guess is technically illegal gambling.

 

Some of our ladies who live with roommates, have a small home, etc. Will often host at another girl's house. She'll come over and help clean the day before and provide the food, drinks, and decorations, then help clean up.

Yeah that's how it worked with my old group...and probably how we would do it this time...I just read somewhere that some people play in a restaurant and I would think they would have to section off a room in their restaurant for us because it would annoy the other diners! :)

2. what night do you play
3. Do you have different themes each month
4. Do you play a unique way?
5. What other creative things does your group do?

I would love to hear it and get ideas! wink.gif
We meet at a houses and we just rotate around the group. We also do the parties in teams of 2, so it's not as stressful to plan. We also all bring food so the host doesn't have to do all the work. Host provides the drinks.
We play on the first Friday of every month.
We never have themes. I guess we are lame. The gifts usually have themes though - but nothing preplanned - just whatever the host wants.

We do gifts for most wins, most losses, most Buncos, last Bunco, and a booby prize.
When we don't have the right number of people we have dolls that fill in with super fab names like Chucky and Shanaynay.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
