Hi everyone! Halloween Bingo was so much fun! Now I am hosting another- Swapper's Alphabet Bingo! This is going to be fun!!


Choose 5 words and post them in the comments. I will start calling words this Sunday 10/11. I am going to be calling a random number of words every time!


You will be putting together an Alphabet swap package for your partner and for the Bingo winner! For your partner you will choose 2 letters (swap words) and send them the 2 items. For the winner you will choose 3. WAIT to send your partners until the winner is announced and then put a note saying what you sent them. Make sure you send something "good"- if you pick E for envie don't just send a blank one. Make one out of a calendar, decorate one, whatever. If you pick something small like B for Brad, don't just send one- send a small pack or a fun assortment! Also try to gear it towards profile...such as don't send the winner yarn if they can't/don't knit at all.


Your partner will rate you when they receive their item. You MUST include a note with what you sent your partner, so wait to send it until the winner is announced.


When someone calls Bingo, I will verify their card to make sure that all five items have been called. Then I will wait until 24 hours have passed since the last item on the winner's card was called in case there are any other Bingo's on the same word. This is international, so I need to allow enough time for anyone in any time zone to see the words and make their claim. If I have already called another word when someone calls Bingo on a previous word, the later words will not count. If more than one person gets Bingo on the same word, the prizes will be split between the winners. For example, if there are two winners, I will send each of the addresses to half of the participants.

Here is the swapper's Alphabet!


B- Brad


D-Deco (book or tape)


F-Friendship books


H-Handmade item









Q-Quilt square


S-Skinny (ask me if you don't know what this is)


U-Used stamp


W-Whimsey jar




I am doing a quick sign up since all of our Bingo players sign on pretty regularly. SIGN UP IS THIS SATURDAY!!! If there is an issue with this, let me know so we can talk about extending the date. Sign up now so you don't forget! I've given 2 weeks because this game should move pretty fast. If we have time I will try to get in another quick game for the end of October.

I will not be playing since there is no way for me to prove that I'm not cheating by picking my own words. I will still send a prize to the winner and my partner. Please post a comment if you have any questions!

Sounds like a good one to jump in the fun on. I'm new here so if I make a mistake with things let me know.

  • D -Deco

  • I - Inchie

  • A - ATC

  • N - Notebook

  • E - Envelope

I take it that what we send does not have to be the same as our bingo words? (Considering that it would not be profile- appropriate in all cases). Just checking all permutations.... Best of luck everyone.

Faerlyfaerie 10/ 6/2009 #

@sweetypiedie correct, you don't have to send anything off of your bingo list. Though you could look at the winner's list, that might give you some clues! haha

WOHOOOOO for the winners!!!

I had one more word to go..... This was very fun.

xnicola 10/21/2009 #

I've got bingo too! Hopefully I haven't missed anything :P Well done @ButterflyDreams & @Judy84 too :)! x

Maggles45 10/21/2009 #

Wow - looks like a Bingo Trio - yea!!! I need some help on clarifying some of the "words".

Organizer - is this like a pocket planner/calendar?

Letter - do you write a letter? sticker letters? Initial letters

deco - no clue what a deco is

Thanks for the help

troione 10/21/2009 #

ah man i didnt win i need to find my lucky penny congrads on the winners

Faerlyfaerie 10/21/2009 #

WOW!! Congrats to all the winners! I will look over the bingo cards, divvy up the names of the winners and send addresses in just a bit!
@Maggles45 , for an organizer I was thinking along the lines of a craft type organizer, for instance I found a set of 4 small storage containers at Jo-Ann for like $1 or 2. It could even be Glad-ware type containers- anything you think might help your partner organize her crafts and swaps.
For letter I meant writing a letter, and a Deco could either be deco tape (it's like kawaii-type decorated tape) or a Deco book (which is like a friendship book, you should be able to find more information in the glossary.)
Of course really anything you want to send is fine as long as you can justify your choice for one of the letters! Just include a note to the winner/your partner to explain what you've sent, what letter it covers, etc! :)

Faerlyfaerie 10/21/2009 #

I just emailed all the addresses and information. Please PM or email me with any questions or concerns!

butterfly35124 10/21/2009 #

Just to let you know I bingoed also. Too bad I could not get to a computer yesterday :( Congrats to the winners!!!!

sweetypiedie 10/24/2009 #

Congratulations to our winners.
