¡Corre y se va! Jugando lotería!

Lotería is a traditional Latin-American game of chance, similar to bingo, but using images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers on ping pong balls. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored. Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number.

Come with your family, meet new people, enjoy beverages, and maybe even learn some Spanish.
