Remember, this is a Halloween bingo night, so to add an extra layer of toil and trouble you might want your bingo cards to be themed. Think cobwebs and witches, pumpkins and ghosts scattered around the card. These symbols could even take the place of some of your blank squares!
You’ve got your guys, gals, and ghouls together so now it’s time to play Halloween virtual bingo!
The first person to mark off all their numbers and call BINGO is the winner!
As this is a special Halloween game of bingo, you want to make sure your game is full of scary excitement! Here are some of the simplest ways that we think you can make your bingo night extra chilling.
Why not make things Halloween-themed and have people call out ‘Boo’ for a line and ‘Haunted House’ when they have a full house? This is a fun way to make things a little more festive, and you could even penalise people if they don’t make the appropriate Halloween call! How's that for a trick...
We've created a series of fun and spooky downloadable zoom backgrounds you can use to boost the spook-factor of your virtual bingo night, so check them out and get ghostly! Whether you’re hosting your Haunted party for kids or want something a little more macabre for the grown ups, we have a whole host of backgrounds for you to choose from.
Feast your eyes on our ghastly and gruesome Halloween Zoom backgrounds.
We think you’ll like these spine-chilling backgrounds, they’ll really set the mood! But if none of these are spooky enough for you, a quick google search will bring up plenty of other options.
You may choose to generate bingo cards online using a number generator easily found with a quick search, but to keep in the Halloween spirit, think about using themed bingo tickets that you can print off. This way, there’s no preparation in generating your tickets and you can have tickets that match your Halloween theme.
When it comes to bingo calls, there are the traditional ones that you’ll be familiar with from regular bingo games, but this is a haunted Halloween event so you should try and make them ghastly too!
Try and keep in the Halloween macabre spirit and use haunted style calls. We’ve put together a full list of sinister bingo calls as a guide for you, but feel free to make up your own! Check out our Haunted Halloween bingo calls cheat sheet to use to amp up the ghoul-factor of your event.
We’ve had out ghouls create 30 free, downloadable bingo tickets and a calling sheet for you to print off and share with your friends, just to make your bingo nightmare a little easier. Each card of 5 tickets is numbered, meaning it is easy to keep track of who is playing with which card!
Click the buttons below to download the ticket and get daubing, if you dare...
You could turn your bingo night up to 11 by turning it into a full fledged halloween bingo party! Why not dress up in scary Halloween costumes, make sure everyone’s drinking themed drinks, and of course, put up lots of hair-raising decorations!
Think about organising yourselves so you all have the same Halloween themed punch or nightmarish snacks and sweets. You want to feel like you’re all involved in one big party, albeit virtually.
And why not make it a competition and award a prize for the best dressed? All your friends can get involved with wearing costumes as you enjoy a game of ghoulish Halloween bingo. With a prize for the best costume you’re sure to see more effort and some incredible outfits.
Remember, we want to see how much you enjoy your Halloween virtual bingo night, so remember to post photos to social media using the hashtag #OBHalloweenBingo!
