What's a Bunco?

Flying fuzzy dice, changing partners, giggles and groans, dancing dice, shouts of "Bunco!" and prizes are just a few indications that you've walked into a Cache' Connections 4-on-4 Connection Party! And we encourage you to register or walk in for another such fun event in Orland Park this Saturday night!

Cache' Connections braved our second such party in Springfield, Illinois this past Saturday night. For those not familiar with the dice game known as Bunco, it is a simple dice game which involves taking five minutes to roll for ones around a table of four, then five minutes rolling for two's, and so on. If you roll a one, you keep rolling. If you don't, you pass the dice to the left. Sounds pretty simple, right? It is - well, after the first round. There's always a learning curve with a new game. But once the singles got the hang of it, they had fun adding scores with the person across from them, and changing seats every five minute round. Perfect for singles!

There are hundreds of ways to play, but we've simplified it enough so that anyone can get the hang of it, and we're always on hand to answer questions on scoring. There are prizes awarded for high score, low score, most Buncos and the last one holding the fuzzy dice. "But what's a Bunco?" you ask. Well, if you are rolling for ones and you happen to roll three ones, that's a Bunco! So you holler "Bunco" and watch for the flying fuzzy dice from the last player holding it.

So if you don't have plans this Saturday, join us at 4:00 pm for this fun game, followed by dinner at Mimi's Cafe in Orland Park, Illinois. CLICK HERE for details and to register!
