HOW TO PLAY
First and foremost, you'll need to create a Bingo Card and have it approved in that thread before participating! Once you have one, host it on your trade post somewhere and follow along with us to see if you have a bingo!
HOW CARDS WILL BE CALLED
- Starting on May 8th, 2019, we will begin posting randomized cards in this thread every day.
- For each post we make, you'll want to compare your bingo card with the cards posted and see if you have any matches. If you find that cards we've called are on your bingo card, you'll want to check out the possible bingo matches we are allowing in this game (posted below) to see if you have found a bingo pattern. Feel free to mark your card off if you like, as long as you save the untouched original separately!
- Cards that you match each day may carry over to the next day unless someone has claimed bingo on the previous day. If the bingo was legitimate, players must clear their bingo cards and start fresh on the next day. The card call post following a bingo will remind players to do so.
- The randomizer will only call cards that have not already been called unless the game has been reset due to a bingo.
- If a card you have doubles of on your bingo card is called, you may mark off all copies at once.
- If you have a match, please use the form (posted below) to claim your bingo!
- You have 3 days from the original post to claim your bingo. It doesn't matter if another player has called bingo for that same day already. Yours still counts too as long as you have a match and claim it within the 3 days. We will provide a countdown for you each time we call new cards to be checked so it's clear when the bingo must be claimed.
- If you join the game late (as in, if your bingo card was made and approved after a given day) you may not call bingo on days that happened already, even if the period to call bingo is still open for that particular day!

Bingo Claim rewards can be earned by discovering a match on your bingo card and submitting the form above to claim it. Bingo claims will be rewarded as they are validated. Participation rewards, on the other hand, will be passed out at the end of the month after we tally who participated and how many wins were claimed overall. Details can be found in the spoilers below:
Some of the bingo patterns are harder to get than others based on the number of card matches required, so here is the general rule of thumb for what you can expect for your reward when you claim a bingo:
- 4 cards matched (inner corners, outer corners, inner diamond pattern)
8 random cards
- 5 cards matched (all diagonal matches, all horizonal matches, all vertical matches, all around the corner matches)
10 random cards
- 8 cards matched (large diamond pattern)
16 random cards
- 10 cards matched (x pattern)
20 random cards
In addition to individual bingo claims, we will also post rewards at the end of the month!
- Participation Reward
All members that participate will receive 2 choicecard coupons and 12 random cards regardless of whether they got any bingos. This will be determined by players that signed up in the Sakura Bingo Sign Up thread.
- Bingo Pioneer Reward
The first player to get a bingo will receive 1 random limited edition coupon and 5 random cards. This is not necessarily time based; if multiple players claimed a bingo on that same day, all players who claimed a valid bingo will receive this reward.
- Bingo Master Reward
The player to earn the most bingos will receive 1 random rare coupon, 2 random limited edition coupons and 10 random cards. If players are tied for this, all players in the tie will be rewarded.
- Bingo Runner Up Reward
The player to earn the second most bingos (after the one who won the most) will receive 1 random limited edition coupon and 10 random cards. If players are tied for this, all players in the tie will be rewarded.
