Lotería (Spanish for lottery) is a Latin game originating in Mexico, similar to bingo, but using images on a deck of cards instead of numbers on ping pong balls! Every image has a name and number (but the number is usually ignored!). Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number. The deck is composed of 54 different images on cards. To start the game players choose which tabla they want to play with then the caller randomly selects a card from the deck and announces it to the players by either its name or by using a riddle or humorous patter. The players with a matching pictogram on their board mark it off with a counter or marker (many Mexicans traditionally use small rocks, crown corks or pinto beans). The first player with four chips in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row, squared pattern, or any other previously agreed pattern, or who fills the tabla first shouts 'Lotería!' or 'Buenas!' (Good!) and wins!
