Bingo is a classic game where players hope that a caller calls out cards in their hand. Bingo is very popular for both young and old card players and can be played with 2 to 12 people.

Bingo is played with 2 standard decks of 52 playing cards. After both decks are shuffled separately, one deck is given to the caller while the other deck is dealt out to the Bingo players. The number of cards dealt for 2 to 10 players is 5. For 11 or 12 players, 4 cards are dealt.
How to Play
After the cards are dealt, the caller selects the top card of their own deck and calls out the rank and suit. If a player has the card called out in their hand, they turn that card over or mark it for themselves. The caller then calls out the next card. Play like this continues until a player meets the winning criteria and yells out ‘Bingo!’
The player who calls out Bingo receives 0 points. If a player could have called out Bingo but didn’t, they receive 1 point. Any player who has 1 or more unmatched cards at the time of Bingo, receives 2 points.
Each round ends when a player makes Bingo. The game ends when a predetermined number of rounds is met. The player with the lowest points wins the game.

Card Game Basics
A deck of cards consists of 52 cards, with 4 distinctive subgroups. Each of these subgroups is recognised by a symbol and are referred to as suits. They consist of Clubs, Spades, Hearts and Diamonds. Each suit contains 13 cards which, generally, are considered in this order, Ace (A), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jacks (J), Queen (Q) and King (K). Some games include the two Jokers found in a standard deck but most games don’t.
