Bingo Rules Post

It's a new month and a new challenge is about to commence, Bingo is the name of the game and here is a quick run down of the 'rules' of how to declare a Bingo!

While we're collecting in the Bingo Cards, here is the rules post where you can ask any questions that may come up.

This time round we will have 3x3 and 2x2 cards, you can declare anything from a one square Bingo to a Bingo Blackout (the aim of the game is to be inspired by prompts, be they one or several).

So as to not limit anyones creativity, people can choose their own cards at their leisure

How to complete 3x3 Cards - Create either a fic or graphic for any prompt squares of your card as follows

A Square/s - Any square or two squares of your card
A line - Three prompts in any connected vertical or horizontal line
Corners - All four prompt corners of your card
Corner Belly Button - All four corners and the middle square
The Cross - All the middle squares of the rows
Bingo Blackout - All nine squares of your card

How to complete 2x2 Squares - Create either a fic or graphic for any prompt squares of your card as follows

A Square - Complete one prompt from your card
Doubles - Complete two prompts from your card
A Corner - Three prompts from your card
Mini Bingo Blackout - Four Prompts from your card

You can see examples of all ways to complete your cards at the Bingo Examples Post

How to fill a card?
