Bunco !

Bunco is a social dice game involving luck, some skill, scoring and a complex set of rules. Women who are part of a Bunco Club take turns as the Bunco Hostess, providing snacks, refreshments and the tables to set up the games. The Hostess may also provide a door prize. Small amounts of money can be involved as well.

The object of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations. The winners get prizes provided by the Hostess or pooled from the Club resources. Prizes frequently center on themes associated with the game such as fancy dice, dice embedded in soap, t-shirts featuring illustrations of dice, etc. The rules are often different from place to place, but everyone is happy to show new players how we play.
