This version of Bingo requires a lot less luck and a lot more skill than the original game! You must try and collect all the symbols on your worksheet by drawing cards, but before flipping each card over to reveal a symbol you must first complete the challenge outlined on the card! Like in the original version of Bingo, the first person to cross off all the symbols on their gamecard wins.

Instructions:

  1. You can use a single Marty and programming device per game (and pass them round) or each person can have their own. You also need one bingo card for each person playing to have one and a deck of challenge cards.

  2. Decide on the order of turns – such as youngest to oldest or tallest to smallest

  3. During your turn take the card at the top of the deck and complete the challenge on the card using the programming device and Marty. You can ask for help once from someone during the game but if they help you then they also get to cross off the the challenge card symbol on their bingo card…

  4. If everyone agrees that you have satisfied the challenge then you can match this symbol on your bingo card

  5. Repeat going around the group until one player has managed to tick off all symbols, in which case they have to shout EASTER BINGO!
