Bingo terms

Posted by Jessica Chamberlain on October 21, 2005

I am doing an investigative project on where bingo terms come from and the history of...

I was wondering if anybody knows of any person/website/books/organisations - anything(!) where I can get my hands on some more info./deeper research.

Things like why is eighty 'Blind 80' etc? I love all the stories behind these numbers. I am also very keen to find out more about the obscure bingo numbers and the stories behind them....(i.e. 23 "The Lord Is My Shepherd" refers to Psalm 23 in The Bible.)

I would be so grateful for any information as I'm just starting my research.

Many thanks & kindest regards,

Jessica Chamberlain
