5 columns by 5 rows. Step 6. Using a list of the 50 states, enter the names
of 25 states chosen at random, one per square, on each game board so that each board has
different states written in different spaces. Step 7. Distribute the boards to each player. Decide how you are playing. Can you score a bingo by filling a row horizontally,
vertically, or diagonally—or are you playing “full board”? Step 8. Each player looks out for license plates from
states that correspond to those on his or her board. Step 9. Every state spotted is called out. The players who have that state on their boards
cross it off. Step 10. The first one to complete a line or the full
board wins the game. Did you know Delaware was the first state
to join the union in 1787, but Massachusetts issued the first license plates in 1903.
