Each player gets one score card. At the end of each round, the individual player’s score is recorded on the Score Sheet.
There are six rounds in each game of bunco. The bell signals the beginning and the end of each round.
Each table is randomly divided into 2 teams.
Team couples sit across from each other. Pick one person on each team to tally
points during each round. Keep track of team points by using the tally
sheet--these points are only used for each number round.
Players earn points by rolling the three dice. In each round,
players are trying to roll the same number of the round BUNCO! (for example,
Round 3). When you roll "three of a kind" of the
number you are currently rolling this is a BUNCO!(21
points). Keep rolling and collecting points. Do not forget to give
yourself, not your teammate, one BUNCO! point on the
bottom of your score sheet after your turn is finished. If at this time or
any other time a player at the "Head" table rolls a BUNCO! the bell is rung
and the round stops. The other players
currently rolling finish their turn and continue collecting points .
If you roll "three of a kind"--of another number--give your team 5
points and keep rolling and collecting points until you do not roll the number
that is "up".
The scorekeeper writes down 3 points on the tally sheet.
