Tambola, also known as Indian Bingo or Housie, is a game of probability. The organizer/caller calls the CUE/COIN one at a time and players need to strike the matching CUE/COIN on their tickets.
Puranic Tambola is an innovative variation of the typical Housie / Bingo game where we have diligently merged the fun aspects of the game with recollection of some great Puranic characters. This gives an interesting twist to the traditional number based Tambola. It takes away the monotonous aspects of calling out dry numbers and instead provides the organizer a handy tool to make the game lot more educating and interactive. As the names of Puranic characters get drawn every time in the form of CUEs, the learning and fun aspects can touch new heights only to be limited by the creativity of the organizer.
Who Can Play: All ages, right from 5 year old child to senior most citizens around, can enjoy playing this
No. of Participants: More the merrier! While in a typical family setting 3-6 people can have good fun playing this Tambola; during birthday parties, family get-togethers, public gatherings like Ganesh Chaturthi, Navaratri, New Year events about 150+ people can play at one time as well.
Pass on the Puranic Tambola Tickets to the participants.
Announce the rules and the prizes.
Keep all the 60 CUES in a pouch or a box.
Shake the CUEs well and pick a CUE.
To create an interest in the participants, instead of reading out what is there on the CUE ask a question around the name picked out to add curiosity & learning in the participants. A simple reference material is provided for you to understand what is there in every CUE. Anchor of the game can refer to that reference material before starting the game.
Participants who complete winning patterns based on the prizes announced should come forward and present the ticket to be verified. Organizer can keep validating the winner entries and hand over the prizes appropriately.
Slogans like ”Jai Jai Mata – Bharat Mata”, “Hara Hara – Mahadev” and “Mataram Mataram – Vande Mataram” may be given in between the game to create more inspirational fun among the participants.
