Announcing a new event for The Grand Rapids Spanish Language Meetup Group!

What: Let's play Loteria!

When: Saturday, January 19, 10:30 AM

Event fee: USD1.00 per person

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Why: This group is an ideal venue for people who have a little Spanish that they want to improve and also for those who just want an opportunity to keep what they know fresh. Don't be afraid! You're unlikely to need more help than the organizers.

Event Description: This will be a little departure from our usual conversation because we'll be playing Loteria, which is a Mexican form of Bingo. Instead of using numbers (such as "N40") it uses picture cards. The caller names the picture (which is also written on the card) for the players to find on their game card. Callers can also create little rhymes or stories for the picture if they are comfortable with it. The play continues until a player gets 4 spots covered in one of several patterns.

It's a simple game but it helps players learn a lot of simple nouns.

We played this for Pesos in Mexico so bring a handful of nickles if you want to make it interesting. (Hopefully, Mezze won't kick us out.)
