Bingo, Catalan style!
Tonight we were invited to see Bingo Catalan style in the village ballroom. We arrived once the game had started but it was very simple to follow. Each participant had brought a small gift that was used for a prize. The cards were a series of numbers with no letters on them at all. A drum was rolled, the number called out and also shown on a big screen. We hadn't brought a gift so we couldn't play but next time we will. It was fairly easy to understand the numbers being called out in Catalan. To win a small prize you had to complete a row or for a large prize three rows in one section of the card. Some of the large prizes were very impressive, including a flat screen television. There were even a couple of people taking orders for soft drinks and nibblies. A fun night out.
