As you will all know, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, it’s that time of year when The Great British Bake Off comes to an end. What was, at first, nothing more than an incredibly competitive way to bake, albeit a dramatic one, has now become the new reasoning behind a game of bingo and a drinking game. Thanks to the constant remarks about “soggy bottoms”, viewers can now sit at home and play a spot of Bake Off Bingo as they follow the show, or they can choose to reach for a cheeky drink and take a gulp every time they hear certain catchphrases.
When the show began, it seemed doubtful that it would ever become to nationally loved programme it is today, and yet three series on the show is continuing to grow in popularity, with this new inspired game only adding to its fun and charm. The Telegraph has a card with scenarios and key words on it that you’re to cross off if they happen during the show, with The Daily Mail doing something very similar – all these different variation have caused a boom in the bingo world.
You can even play along via social networking sites such as Twitter if you want a more modern day equivalent of the popular game. Online users have been a busy bunch, tweeting and commenting throughout each episode, with some even remarking on how it is best not to play the Bake Off game during pie week because you’ll lose all your dignity because of the amount of drinks you’ll have to consume. A pretty accurate description when you consider that the phrase “soggy bottom” was used over 10 times in just one episode – no doubt there were many bleary eyed people waking up the next morning.
Of course, if bingo is a game you love, you can always take your new found enjoyment of it and play some more traditional versions of the game online – www.galabingo.com/slots is a popular online destination for many who fancy a cheeky game after work or before bed. Either way, whether your downing shots or playing straight up bingo, endless fun is bound to be had, especially if you play while watching The Great British Bake Off.
