Some Serious Fun
Photograph by David McLain

Bingo night in Nalcrest draws close to 200 players anxious to take a shot at the winnings—30 bucks a game. But it's no game for amateurs. Serious players one and all, these folks show up early to make sure they get their favorite seats. "Straight line" bingo—when a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line wins—gets boring for these pros. So now and again the bingo caller mixes it up with "frame" and "L" games, just to keep things lively.
