A to Z BINGO for the #AtoZChallenge 2017

What is this Bingo card of 24 items and a free space all about?
It's a fun game to play during the A to Z challenge 2017!

As you're hopping around, reading and commenting on the many blogs, keep this game card nearby. Save the links of the posts that fill your BINGO card.

Your goal is to cover five squares in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row. Or, better still, cover all the squares!
The center (marked by a star) is a freebie space.

Call out "#AtoZBingo" on Twitter/ Facebook when you get Bingo.
Consider sharing a post, or commenting, when you find one that covers a square. #AtoZBingoSQ

If you take part, include your BINGO RESULTS in your 2017 A to Z reflection post in May.
Let everyone know then which links covered your card.

    Yikes. Is that a pterodactyl in the top/center? B-)

  6. OMW!!! What an awesome idea!!! :D I will look forward to this! BUT I guess there's no where to report your Bingo if you DON'T use FB or Twitter? (I don't use either.)

    Impromptu Promptlings

    1. On your reflection post in May. I suppose you could add it to your daily posts, if that pleased you. Whatever keeps it fun.

  7. Ooh, fun idea! I will try to incorporate some of these into my blog posts so folks can find their BINGO. :)

  8. You're making the challenge a lot of fun!
