The game of Bingo is over 2,000 years old and originally was referred to as Beano.   Bingo started as a form of entertainment and skill in pattern recognition and later dexterity as players play many cards at once for each game.  The speed of the caller, the number of cards being played at once, and the ability to play multiple winning combinations at once adds to the fun and skill necessary to play bingo.
