Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Bingo Edition
7:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday, April 20 on Zoom
Please note that we will need to receive your RSVP by 9 p.m. Monday, April 19 (the day BEFORE our event).
This month, we’re shaking up our usual format to play Zine Bingo! Our twist on the classic game will give everyone an opportunity to go on a scavenger hunt through your own zine collections.
Check out our bingo card, grab your zines, BYOS(nacks) and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Bingo Edition at 7:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday, April 20!
Here’s how our version of Zine Bingo will work: We’ve created this zine-centric bingo card here! We’ll all be using the same card for the game; feel free to print it out or download it. Each box on the card represents a category of zines that you might have in your collection; for example, a how-to zine or a zine about cats.
Before we meet, search your collection and find a zine that corresponds to a category in one box from each vertical row on the card. The rows are marked with the letters Z-I-N-E-S. Each box also has a number in the corner. (Y’all are welcome to bring zines that correspond to more or fewer than one box per row, or to not bring zines at all and join us just to hang out.)
During our event, we’ll randomly pull bingo balls marked with the letter and number of each box on the bingo card. Folks with a zine that fits the category in the box we’ve called will then tell us about the zine they brought. We’ll keep going until we get a collective bingo! (Everyone is a winner at Zine Club Chicago).
