I have 5 different bingo cards you can use, so if you have a group of 10 (For example) you will have 2 winners at a time. Keep that in mind when planning prizes. Just cut out all the squares on bingo card 1 plus the gold bow from bingo card 2 to make a draw pile. This bingo is a little tricky because there are lots of leprechauns that look similar so the kids will have to examine carefully whether they are marking of the right little guy. And as a caller you need to be specific “the leprechaun with the red beard holding a shamrock” for example.

I am sure you know how to play bingo but just in case here are the basics:

How to Play Bingo

  • Get Bingo Cards: Each player gets a bingo card- the printable is available at the end of this post.
  • Make a Draw Pile: Again by cutting out all the squares from bingo card 1 plus the gold bow from bingo card 2 you will have all the images you need to play. Just shuffle good and get ready to draw!
  • Draw an image and announce it to the group: Make sure you are specific “the rainbow coming out of the pot of gold” for example. If possible show the image you drew to the group. This may not work with large groups.
  • Mark Your Image: If a player’s card has the drawn image, they mark it off. Players can use coins, bingo daubers, or other markers to mark their numbers. I recommend something green or gold!
  • Call Bingo: The game continues until a player completes a specific pattern on their card (e.g., a line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally). The player shouts “Bingo!” to indicate they’ve won.
  • Verify the Win: The caller checks the card to verify the win. If the player has made a valid bingo, they win that round. Prizes could include a small treat or toy or just a high five!
  • Play Again: The game can continue with new cards and patterns for as many rounds as desired.

Bingo Variant Ideas

To make things more interesting you could try some of these bingo game variants:

  • Blackout Bingo: Players must mark off every number on their card to win.
  • Four Corners: Players must mark off the four corner numbers of their card to win.
  • Postage Stamp: Players must mark off a small square of numbers in one corner of their card to win.
  • Picture Bingo: Instead of numbers, players mark off pictures or words on their cards- like all the Leprechauns!
  • Speed Bingo: Numbers are called out quickly, and players must keep up with marking their cards.
  • Progressive Bingo: The jackpot increases each game until someone wins.
  • Bonanza Bingo: Players have a set amount of numbers they need to mark off to win, which increases each game until someone wins.
  • Death Bingo: Players are eliminated from the game after a certain number of incorrect markings.
