Vintage SKILL BINGO Put Steel Balls in Rows, Scoreboard - (eBay item 290181434303 end time Nov-20-07 19:15:00 PST)
This is a different wrinkle on Bingo. The box lid says, "Skill Bingo, A New Fascinating Game." It is "Copyright 1938 Bar-Zim Co., Jersey City, N.J. Made in U.S.A." The lid is covered in red paper with an alligator texture.
Inside the lid are the playing rules. The winner is whoever reaches 1000 points first by getting five balls in a row four different ways. A scorekeeper tracks each player's progress on the long green scoreboard.
There are eight metal balls in the blue box, five in the red box and seven in the yellow box. There are three wooden game pieces for the green scoreboard and might have been more when new.
