Most of us have, at one time or other, played a game of Bingo. This classic game with numbered cards and balls is a simple yet entertaining game that’s great for bringing people together.
Bible Games Central has designed a game that combines the fun and interaction of Bingo with learning about the books and sections of the Bible – Bible Bingo.
While usual Bingo cards contain numbers, the specially designed Bible Bingo cards feature the books of the Bible. Each card is organized into sections of the Bible, such as Old Testament Law, Old Testament History, New Testament Letters from Paul, amongst others. Each section has a unique border color that corresponds to the Bible Bingo Calling Cards. With repeated play using different Bible Bingo cards, players become familiar with the books and sections of the Bible.
Download, print and cut up the Bible Bingo Cards. (Each sheet contains 2 unique cards.)
This printable contains 12 unique Bible Bingo Cards. You do not need to print all the cards. Just print as many as you need. (If you have more than 12 players, you will need to print multiple copies.)
Download, print and cut up the Bible Bingo Calling Cards. There are 66 unique calling cards, corresponding to the 66 Books of the Bible. Place all 66 Bible Bingo Calling Cards in a stack. Give the Calling Cards a good shuffle to mix them up.
You may also like to download and print the following optional resources for your reference during the game or for your discussion thereafter.
How to Play Bible Bingo
Give each player 1 Bible Bingo Card. (You can also give each player 2 or more cards.)
Have everyone cross out the “Free Space” square in the middle of their Bible Bingo Cards.
The game leader picks 1 Bible Bingo Calling Card at a time from the stack and calls out the book of the Bible and the section which it falls under.
Players with that book on their Bible Bingo Card can cross out that square.
The first player to cross out 5 squares in a row (in any direction) and shouts “Bible Bingo!” wins.
