Here are the ins and outs of Bunco... at least this is how we do it!
Food and Beverages: The host provides the food and drink. I usually try to do a casserole and some sides to feed large groups to make it easy. I always have wine, it just makes things more fun! Last night, I also made those St. Germain Champagne Cucumber Cocktails I showed you all last week. I had to leave out the mint since I didn't have any, but wow they were still delicious!
The Friends: Again, you need twelve to play and a few extras as subs since people can't always make it.
The Game: Dice! Split into three tables with four at each table. You roll three dice for ones, then twos and so on until you get to six. If you roll all three of the same number and the number you are rolling for, that is a big Bunco. If you roll all three of the same number and it is not the number you are rolling for, it is little Bunco. You keep rolling and each time you roll the number you are rolling for, you add it together until you reach 21 and then the round is over. It sounds confusing but it's so simple!
The Prizes: One of the best parts of the night is seeing who rolled the biggest number of Big Buncos, Little Buncos, most wins and most losses. Yes, the biggest loser gets a prize! We do the prize system, some girls do money, but I find winning fun and unique items are the most fun.
So if you don't have a Bunco group, grab twelve of your closest girlfriends and set it up. You'll be so glad you did!
