QuadWorks hosts Bingo night

On Oct. 8 Quadworks hosted Bingo Night. There were plenty of prizes and one and a half hours worth of opportunities to win.
The prizes included 12 pack soda drinks, a case of Caprisun and snacks like Cheetos and Doritos to go with the drinks. There were also larger prizes such as water bottles and sunglassest. The big prize of the night was a $100 gift card.
There were over 60 people at the event and enough bingo cards to go around. The cool atmosphere would go from relaxed to tense in only a few moments based on how close people were getting to a chance at yelling bingo at the top of their lungs.
In some situations, it was not enough to simply yell when two people would win simultaneously and there was only one prize up for grabs. This led to sprints from table to prize with one person walking away a lucky winner while the other person, though disappointed would go back to their table hoping for another chance.
Each game lasted about ten minutes and the game night was an hour and half which means about nine games. Three prizes per game gave 27 chances to win a prize.
There were a variety of bingo games. The first type of bingo game began with the traditional bingo, one straight line to win.
Specialty bingo was another type plated. This consisted of winners needing  a “U” shape. Nine box bingo was a type which was a 3 by 3 box. Then there was a T round and lastly black-box bingo which meant filling the whole box.
The winner of the black-box round got the $100 gift card while the second and third place got the standard prizes.
For each game that one person yelled Bingo you could hear at least a dozen other people around the cafe yell, “No!”
The rush to prizes by multiple winners always left the rest of the players laughing. For the whole night the most exciting game was blackout bingo. Next time there’s a bingo night some tips would be to sit close to the prizes and be prepared to yell at the top of your lungs.
QuadWorks will also be hosting an Improv Night in the Medical School Auditorium Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. This event is open to all students.
