WHAT IS BOBUBINGO
BoBuBingo is short for Box Buster Bingo. It is a game of bingo played during a given box break using the card numbers typically found on the backs of trading cards. For instance, in a game of 2018 Score Football BoBuBingo, we would use the numbers on the back of each 2018 Score Football card pulled as our Bingo numbers. When we create the BoBuBingo cards for each game, we use the official checklist for the trading card product being broken during the game. Not only will you find card numbers, you may also find card types (i.e. “AUTO” or “MEM” etc.), serial numbering (i.e. #/10, #/5, 1/1, etc.), parallel types (i.e. “GOLD” or “RED” etc.), teams, and players.
HOW TO ENTER
You will receive from us one BoBuBingo card for every spot you purchase in a BoBuBingo break. If you purchase three spots in that break, you will receive three BoBuBingo cards for that break.
For most games of BoBuBingo, the hits pulled in that game’s given break will be used as the prize(s). Unless otherwise explicitly noted, we at Crackin’ Wax consider any item containing an autograph; any item containing another item embedded within; or any item serial numbered 1/1, or listed as being a 1/1 or One-of-One to be a hit. At the beginning of the game, no hits belong to anyone (except for SAFE HITS [see below])!
During the game, we will call out each trading card’s number as they are pulled. We will also make note of other specific details that may impact the game (i.e. specific teams, players, card types, etc.). Any time a card number or card detail that we announce matches a space on your BoBuBingo card, you may consider it filled. We will keep making announcements until BoBuBingo has been called and confirmed, after which time we will continue onto Double BoBuBingo, and then Final BoBuBingo.
MULTIPLE SPACES FROM ONE TRADING CARD
It is possible to fill multiple spaces on one BoBuBingo card from just one trading card. Let’s say, for instance, your BoBuBingo card contains a space with the New York Yankees logo and another with the word “MEM.” Now, let’s say we pull an Aaron Judge jersey relic card. You would then be able to fill both the Yankees logo space and the “MEM” space using just the one pulled trading card.
HOW TO WIN AND WHAT YOU WIN
ROUND 1: BOBUBINGO The first person to call and confirm a “BoBuBingo!” (a single filled row [left-to-right], a single filled column [up and down], or a single filled diagonal line) will win the FIRST HIT PULLED, even if the winner already owns that hit’s spot. In the case that the first hit pulled is a SAFE HIT not owned by the winner, the next hit pulled that is not someone else’s safe hit will be awarded. Round 2 cannot begin until Round 1 is confirmed and completed. If BoBuBingo is not called and confirmed by the conclusion of the game, all hits will be distributed to their proper spots.
ROUND 2: DOUBLE BOBUBINGO The first person to call and confirm a “Double BoBuBingo!” (any combination of two total filled rows, columns, or diagonal lines) will win ANY HIT OF THEIR CHOICE, regardless if the hit had previously been claimed in Round 1. The winner cannot claim any SAFE HIT unless it is their own. Round 3 cannot begin until Round 2 is confirmed and completed. If Double BoBuBingo is not called and confirmed by the conclusion of the game, any remaining unclaimed hits will be distributed to their proper spots.
ROUND 3: FINAL BOBUBINGO The first person to call and confirm a “Final BoBubingo!” (a completely filled BoBuBingo card) will win ALL HITS PULLED, regardless if the hits had previously been claimed in Round 1 and/or Round 2, except for any SAFE HITS not owned by the winner (see below). If Final BoBuBingo is not called and confirmed by the conclusion of the game, any remaining unclaimed hits will be distributed to their proper spots.
Most BoBuBingo games will be attached to some form of random break. In those breaks, no hits are safe. However, in any breaks in which you have the opportunity to pick a team, any hits pulled from picked teams will be considered SAFE and CANNOT be claimed unless the winner owns the picked team of the hit. For instance, if you specifically pick the Packers in a 4-team hybrid break in which you would also receive three random teams, you will receive all Packers hits pulled. Hits from the three random teams in your spot would, however, be up for grabs.
YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO PLAY AND WIN
While you are certainly welcome to join any of our BoBuBingo breaks, you can only play if you are present in our YouTube Live Break Room during the live break. Any BoBuBingos you may have won are ineligible if you cannot call them out in the YouTube Live Break Room during the game.
DO I STILL GET TO KEEP MY CARDS?
You get to keep any and all cards pulled for you during the break EXCEPT for any hits that may have been claimed by any winners during the game. You will also receive any SAFE HITS that may have been pulled for you from any game in which you pick a specific team for your spot.
