Bunco Sundays

I have heard quite a few women talk about Bunco, and when some of the ladies in my book club started talking about creating a group - I jumped in, too.  
Our group members are fabulous - we all live in the same area and have a lot of fun together.  We all met  in the last few months & it just clicked!
On Sunday, I hosted our first Bunco group "meeting".  Only 3 of us knew how to play, so it was quite entertaining to see us all learn.

This is all of us learning from Erin, it was the only semi-quiet part of the night.

It's an easy, fast paced game - and so much fun!
I got some party platter fajitas & plenty of wine... it was wonderful!

The wine & dessert table.
 I put little name tags on everyone's glass :)  (It's an effort to mask my bad hostess skills)
 We all met because of this girl... Jessica started the original book club group.
 Tables of four... but it's always moving! (Hilary finishing off a bottle of wine!)
 Tricia, Lynsey, Melissa, & Melissa!
 Max & Zeus felt they should be in the group picture.
Such a fun group of girls!!  (& that's Zeus mid flight)

Are you in any fun groups?
They're easy to start... just ask around! (& Bunco is easy)
These ladies have definitely been one of the highlights of moving to a new area!
I can't wait until next month!

Would you believe that I worked on a pilot for Bunco? It never got picked up, but that was the first time I had heard of the game. Sounds fun!

Aw that's fun, sadly I'm not in any of those groups I tried joining a different one but nothing came of it rather sad I don't have too many girlfriends in Sacramento any more.

How fun! A friend and I have been talking about hosting a Bunco group for years and we've never committed! Looks like a blast!

Rebekah said...

I play Bunco once a month with the group on our base! It is so much fun and I have never played until we moved here. It's a lot of fun!

Ashley said...

I have heard of Bunco and really want to join a group to play. I move too much to stay with a steady group and haven't seen many groups here, being as I've been to this area before. Usually what i do is go to meetup.com but it is fairly easy to get involved in groups without. I love games and do miss playing games!

Bunko is THE best night of the month!
Have fun and enjoy your time!!

Allison said...

Ahhh, this is so fun! My mom and aunt are on a Bunco team, and they taught me how to play YEARS ago (I slowed them down though, so they gave up on me).
How fun that you have a group of ladies you have such a great time with! I think you have great hostess skills, girl - everything looks great :) (I especially love how the dogs jumped in to the pictures - adorable!).

That looks like SO much fun. Someday I will have a big group of girls to hang out with! Maybe when we have a home I'll but together a book club or Bunco group.
