Big Ben bingo

To this end he hired a college mathematics professor, and together they created a vast number of different bingo cards. Incidentally, the professor later went mad, but this is not to be supposed that the game was at fault. When the cards were sold to the public they were an immediate success, and people everywhere were suddenly playing the game. Not until later did the game become a favorite at charities and other such events in church basements. A Catholic priest approached the toy manufacturer and asked for the games to be played to raise money for his parish, and the rest is history.

Even though bingo has been played more or less continually since its arrival to the United states, it has not always been as popular as it is today. Long year of weekly bingo games for charity and elderly homes have caused the popularity of the game to wane, and it was not until the past few years that the game began to be very popular and trendy. People seem to like bingo for a variety of different reasons. Firstly, because it is a friendly game in which they can talk and meet their friend and socialize. Secondly, it is because it is a game that requires no previous knowledge and anyone can play after a short tutorial.
