There are two ways to play Passover Bingo. The game, which is designed for the entire family, is patterned after the traditional game of Bingo.
To play the game during your Seder, each player follows along with a bingo game board as the Hagaddah is read. If a word from a square on the board is read during the story of Exodus, the square can be covered with a marker. The first person to yell out “Bingo” as soon are the squares are covered in a winning pattern is declared the winner.
The other way to play is before or after the seder. The back side of the instruction card lists all the words on the card in scrambled order. You can call out words one at a time, starting at the top, give a clue rather than the word itself, or even give a word an ask for an explanation. Whoever covers the squares in a winning pattern first wins! A detailed instruction sheet is included with each game.
Passover Bingo can be played with as few as two people. The word list/explanations can even be used for independent study about key players and events of the holiday, though we recommend contacting learning in a group environment through your synagogue, outreach organization, or knowledgeable Jewish friends.
Passover Bingo was originally designed as a game to keep kids engaged during the reading of the Seder, but adults often join in and love playing the game as well.

Passover Bingo was designed by an attorney in Denver, Colorado. She originally devised the game as a way to keep her niece and nephew engaged during the family’s Passover Seder. It was such a hit with friends and family at her sister and brother in law’s seder, that everyone wanted a copy for their own seders next year!
