Last night was my turn to host bunko. Sweet Julia (PS - she's blogging now; look out Martha) let me use her house to host our group. I think I came up with a good theme, but you decide:


This is what the invite looked like:
I wrote it by hand, scanned it and then flipped it using Paint on my computer. Easy-peasy.

As the girls arrived in their backwards clothing, we had dessert first. Duh. That was the best part. We had a reverse ice cream sundae bar, so they put topppings in their bowl, then a warm brownie, then I scooped them some ice cream. Delicious and a huge hit!

Then we got down to playing bunko in reverse. Normally bunko is played in four rounds of six, with you rolling for 1's, then 2's, then 3's etc. in each round. This time we rolled for 6's, then 5's, then 4's and so on. Also, as in most games, the goal is to win. But this time, we were playing so that the goal was to lose the most times. Quite a twist!
At "halftime" when we normally eat dessert, I served the group some lasagna and salad and then we finished up our game.
It was a super fun night! I love bunko. Did you know that studies show that joining a club that meets just once per month can have an effect on your happiness equivalent to doubling your salary? It's true - it was on the Oprah show yesterday apparently. That's pretty amazing. If you want help on starting a bunko club in your neck of the woods let me know - we're franchising.


  1. AWESOME THEME! I need a bunko group. I don't know how to play though.

  2. Ditto. I want a bunko group, but need to know how to play first. Write a post on the rules please!

  3. Bunko is a no-brain game! You can talk and play at the same time! Perfect for women, huh? My group has now become the UNbunko group because we have such fun getting together that we just leave the dice at home and go eat Mexican or celebrate a birthday! Glad to know that Bunko has been the reason for my happiness equivalent all these years!


Oh goody!
