Bunco dates back to the late 1800’s and was played by groups of women, school children, and couples. Through the Victorian Era and prior to World War One, Bunco had achieved permanent placement as a traditional family or parlor game, promoting social interaction.
Traditionally most Bunco groups consist of 12 players (usually groups of women and occasionally couples.) Kids are even beginning to play at parties and other social events. Playing Bunco is a great way to maintain relationships and make new friends. As it is played today bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill.
