Music bingo is the trendy music trivia game of the moment! With many pubs, bars, theatres and DJ’s now hosting the pub trivia game, it is important to understand how to play music bingo and what is needed to play the popular game.
Music bingo can be played with paper bingo cards, or with digital, smartphone based music bingo cards. We are going to run through what you need to play music bingo with a music bingo app on your smartphone.
The most important things you will need to play music bingo:
- A smartphone or iPad will be needed so that you can enter the bingo game code and receive your music bingo card. When you receive your bingo card, you will see squares appear with song names inside them. When you hear a song played, you will need to dab this song, by tapping the box with the song in.
- Good internet will be needed to ensure that you can receive your card. Don’t worry about this, your pub will have WiFi most likely, however having 4G as a back-up may be useful.
- A laptop. For virtual music bingo games over Zoom or Microsoft Teams, you will need two devices, one to watch the game on and one to get your music bingo card on.
Another thing you may want to use whilst playing music bingo is Shazam. Shazam is an app which allows you to identify a song name and artist with the click of a button.
