Subject: I hope you all like BINGO...

Master Boring is going to be opening his GHOUL Gaming Hall this year, conveniently located not far from the Ebon Gate festival bank! He'll be hosting games at various times throughout the week, and it works pretty much how you'd expect BINGO to go. Except, of course, it's GHOUL, not BINGO. ;) You'll be able to win such fabulous prizes like Dhu kittens, unlocked metallic gowns, Climatewear and gambling kits, as well as 2x-4x lighten/deepens on one item. There will be various game styles played, such as any single line, double line, X-, L- & N/Z-patterns, outerframe, blackout, etc. The harder the game, the better the prize!


>l my card
Cut from thick parchment, the square card has been precisely stamped with a black-outlined grid. The contents of each cell in the grid have likewise been stamped in blue ink, but in a more hastily done manner, with some markings being crooked or unevenly applied.

Messily written in the upper left corner of the card is "Purchased by: Zythica".

A painted wooden ball floats out of the opening of the polished teak case's hopper and comes to a stop in front of Boring. A ghostly voice calls out, "O 42" before the ball drifts back into a silver bin located within the polished teak case. A corresponding rune on the case's callboard lights up with a sickly orange glow.

Boring raspily calls, "O 42, thrak eye stew."

>daub my card O 42
Using your slim maple dauber, you daub a space on your card.

You'll be able to use a new verb, DAUB, to mark spaces on your cards in monsterbold while holding an appropriate marking item (e.g. a dauber). And of course, the standard rules to BINGO apply here - if you daub a number that hasn't been called, you'll be disqualified from winning.

The cards can also be fully customizeable souvenirs! Nearly everything on the cardface can be altered, a service which will be exclusively offered by Master Boring.
