2020 Book Bingo Reading
I LOVE Tambola! I remember many Saturday evenings while growing up spent at the club with the granny & her cronies playing Tambola/ Housie & scuttling to get all my rows & columns & king’s & queen’s corner crossed out to win… preferably, a full house!
Do you remember your Tambola days? Do you still play it? (I do – love it – similar enthusiasm – I could be 12 years old if you saw me jumping anxiously & praying, and alternately cursing the person calling out the numbers! LOL!!!!)
I’d love to hear your stories – Leave me a comment below 🙂
Totally excited to be part of The 2020 Book Bingo Reading Challenge hosted by the lovely Shinjini, The Modern Gypsy – check out the details here.

Totally enjoyed reading this post and I too love tambola ever so much! It’s one of my favourites and this chart will give me much clarity on how to book binge.
Have wonderful memories of Tambola parties with parents and family. The Book Bingo sounds equally interesting and exciting too.

Though I never played Tambola, but I wish too. Whatever, I never heard of this concept of book bingo. It seems like very exciting and interesting.
Haha my mum gets as excited and enthusiastic as you. I however am not a tambola person. I like board games like chess, ludo, business game, crosswords etc. What other games do you like Isheeria?
This is fun. I started this on my page of Mumbaibookstagram in 2017 and it got great responses. Will be bringing it back again soon.
