What is Bunco, you ask? A crazy dice game, resurrected in the 90's by suburban housewives, looking for an excuse to get out of the house, head to the neighbor's, drink wine, eat munchies and all under the guise of a game. Our moms played Bridge, Canasta and Hearts, we play Bunco. It requires NO thinking, which makes it the ideal game for socializing and imbibing. It is often referred to as Drunco. Although that is less common the older you get!
I started playing 18 years ago when we lived in Alpharetta. I have been in various bunco groups since then. The rules change a little from group to group, but basically you sit in groups of 4, partner across and roll to 21. A Bunco is 3 of a kind of the number you rolling for. Detailed info can be found on Wikipedia here. And you can access the World Bunco site from here?! The nice thing is that this game requires nothing more than dice.
Now to be perfectly honest, Bunco is here, and I have made all sorts of stuff. Spicy Shrimp Cigars and Kopanisti a Feta Dip, both from the Williams Sonoma web site And Pink Lemonade Cupcakes with Pink Lemonade Buttercream, from Pinterest. The cupcakes will have their own blog, but I was thinking I needed to post these cute cookies above one more time! So, what are you waiting for? Bunco!
