Equation Bingo
Sent in by: Dani of Astoria, OR

Bingo with a mathematical twist!

This game is for 3 or more players.

To set up the game, make up a game board for each player.

To do this, draw a 5 square by 5 square grid and number the squares from 1-25.

Make sure each board is different by putting the numbers in different places on each of the boards.

On cards, write down math problems, where the answers equal the numbers 1-25, like 1 x 1 or 3 + 3. Then, put the cards in a hat.

You'll also need small markers, like pennies or scraps of paper, to cover the game board.

To play, pick one person to be the caller. The caller picks a card from the hat and reads it out loud.

Players have to figure out the answer and then use a marker to cover the number on their board.

The first player to cover all spaces up, down, sideways or diagonally, calls out, "Bingo," and wins.
