Download and print our free Bunco score cards with a “mom off duty” theme and create a fun bunco box for your bunco group to send the necessary supplies from hostess to hostess. When I think about times that I have laughed so much that I peed a little, they usually occurred while playing bunco!
How to Host a Bunco Party
Our group consists of 12 participants and a list of subs…just in case. If you are a regular, you are responsible for finding a sub.
We take turns hosting the party which starts at 6:30 with a light dinner provided by the hostess at her home and BYOB drinks.
Everyone puts $5 into the prize pool.
Bunco Table SEt Up
There are three tables of 4 players. The tables are labeled as table 1, table 2 or table 3. A bell is positioned at table 1.
On each table is a placemat (for making dice rolling easier), three dice and a pencil at each chair.
Table Options for Hosting Bunco
The challenge for most of us when hosting is how to configure 3 tables and a total of 12 chairs for the game. What I see most commonly is that the dining table is used and then two temporary card tables. Some homes still have formal dining rooms which allows for the kitchen table to be used as well and only one card table.
I have some extra folding chairs in the garage and am totally willing to BMOC (bring my own chair) too!
Make a Bunco Box
To make it easier for the host, create a traveling bunco box! All the essentials for hosting bunco can safely be stored between parties and make it easier to transport between houses.
