Vintage Bingo Game
Bingo as we know it may have originated as a lottery game called "Il Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia" that was being played in Italy by about 1530. Various other versions appeared throughout Europe over the years, with Hugh J. Ward creating and standardizing the game at carnivals in and around Pittsburgh and the Western Pennsylvania area in the 1920's. He copyrighted it in the US and published a rule book in 1933.
This vintage bingo game, manufactured by the E.E. Fairchild Corporation of Rochester, N.Y., likely dates from the 1960's or early 70's. It includes 2 sets of 15 unique, brightly-colored, cardboard Bingo cards (30 total), 100+ cover markers, a complete set of calling numbers (2 are not original), and game instructions/checking sheet.
A great way to reconnect as a family or the perfect gift for fans of vintage gaming. Or fun materials to use for scrapbooking or other craft projects.
