Hi, all. I have a dilemma. I call Bingo here where I live in Independent Senior housing two times a week. I have been doing this for about a year.
On this past Monday, I played 6 games with them (about 30). I introduced two new shapes for play. I have never heard such complaining! The Sat. before I had a new sheet also, but was told they were all too easy and boring.
Here’s the problem. I need to be diplomatic and let them all know that they must be tolerant of each other’s Bingo fun. I can’t please them all, but I can be fair and play some hard games and some easy games. They need to understand that everyone loves to play, but some are slower than others and some play 6 cards instead of 3 cards. How do I convince them to keep playing and if a game seems hard, just play one card until they see the new pattern better. I don’t want to hurt their feelings or make them seem “dull”.
Thanks for your comments. I call Bingo tomorrow night!
