EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Take your Bingo boards with you wherever you go with Twist Time Bucket Bingo. This offers a new twist on the classic game of Bingo. 

To play, each player gets a Bingo game board. Then, take turns turning the handle on the bucket tumbler to spin and mix up the colorful balls inside. There's a little door on the bottom of the tumbler, and when a ball gets caught in the door, turn the door around to remove that ball. Then, spin the spinner. If it lands on a number, you'll call out the ball color and number. The player with the correct combination of ball color and number gets to place that ball in the corresponding space on his or her game board. (There are four colors of balls: blue, green, purple, and orange. The first letter of each color is listed at the top of each column on the game boards.)

If the spinner lands on “free”, the player can place the colored ball on any open space on their own board in the corresponding color row.

If the spinner lands on “steal”, the player can take a ball from another player and place it on their own board in the corresponding color row. (The unused ball gets placed back in the bucket.)

Once a player has four balls in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, the game is over.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun new way to play the classic game of Bingo. It's easy to learn to play and will be fun for the whole family to play together. The spinning balls inside the tumbler are pretty cool, and the large size of the Bingo game adds another fun element. 

The whole point of the Twist Time game line is to encourage families to play together and have fun both inside and outside. Bucket Bingo would be a great way for families to have fun playing together on a rainy day in the living room or outside in the backyard, at the park, or at the beach.

Who It’s For
Twist Time Bucket Bingo is for two to four players ages 3 and up. It will be a fun game for the whole family to play both indoors and outdoors.
What To Be Aware Of

The game comes with 64 balls, a giant bucket tumbler, four game boards, and a spinner.

We wish the numbers were a little easier to see on the spinner.

This is available exclusively at Target.
