This holiday season, the Dr. Seuss Christmas classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas comes to life, featuring a festive and whimsical twist to the all-time favorite Christmas Bingo game. Each player takes turns to pull gifts from underneath the Christmas tree and see if any player finds a match on his or her Bingo cards. The addition of The Grinch gift tile adds excitement for he may steal your presents or give heart-warming holiday rewards.

The game comes with a colorful 3-D Who House setting with a chimney where the Grinch coin is supposed to be dropped into. This coin-dropping Who House along with the bingo cards, gift tokens, thank you wreath tokens, and the Grinch coin are packaged in a beautiful keepsake tin box which can be made as a decorative piece of display.

The stand-up Who House setting is cute and the idea is good, but the wreath tokens that come with it are not enough to be used as markers when a game is played with six players. Also, the pictures on the cards are a bit difficult for kids to discern so older players will have to assist the younger ones during the game.

Like the playing cards in the classic Bingo, each one has 5 x 5 spaces with a free space in the middle. Only that in this version, pictures can be found in each space instead of numbers. The main object of the game is much like the same to the classic Bingo wherein the first player to get five gifts in a straight line- either up, down, sideways, or diagonally wins the game. It is always possible for more than one player to win on the same turn.

The Verdict

Grinch Christmas Bingo encourages kids to develop their matching and sorting skills, which is really good, but that’s just about all. There is not much depth involved as you only place a marker to the picture that matches to the gifts being turned over. The game did a good job of incorporating Dr. Seuss Christmas classic with a game enjoyed by all ages, but it might not be the kind of game that anyone would want to play over and over again.
