BUNCO!

Last nite I went to my very first ever Bunco Party!! Since we lived in Wellsville I have heard talk of Bunco, but never before had I been invited to play. Until last nite. Meagan, the gal I clean for, is in a Bunco group and they were in need of a sub for their monthly game nite. We had talked about this a few weeks before when Meagan told me that her sister was going to play as a sub and I told Meagan that I would love to be a sub if they ever needed another one. Well, her sister ended up unable to go and she invited me! I was thrilled! And better yet, Rick was very supportive - his response when I asked him if I could go was "Sure, Honey, go and have fun." I was a bit shocked that it was that easy since I would be gone all nite, leaving him in charge of dinner and bedtime.
For those who don't know, Bunco is a dice game. There is no skill involved - all pure chance - the luck of the roll. Each group of 4 has 3 dice. You want to be the first to get a Bucno - meaning rolling all 3 of the same number at once (and the right number!) or by getting 21 points. (Kinda confusing to explain it all here, but that's the basics!) The nite started off with a light dinner and lots of chit chat. Then the 12 of us divided into 3 groups of 4 for the first round. We played the 6 rounds in about 2 hours, prizes were given out to everyone - I was one of the 6 who got a nice little booby prize, my 1 Bunco was nowhere near good enuf to win the prize for the most Buncos, neither were my 9 zeros good enuf for the prize for the most zeros! Oh well - it was a very fun nite! Nice to get out and have some socialization with other women, all who were roughly around my age and at the same place in life as I am. Oh, and I can't forget dessert - yummy key lime cheesecake! SO YUMMY!
I am now armed and ready to start my own Bunco group - anyone want to play? :)

WHOA! That was a super fast comment! I hadn't even finished editing!
Not sure how that would work - have you ever played? You should start your own group! And when I come to visit (hehe) then I will play with you!

It sounds REALLY familiar! I am sure if I saw it once, I would remember...

My own group would be nothing without you! :)
