Learn to play Bunco with Near & Farr Friends

ONEKAMA — Bunco originated in 19th century England where it was known as ‘8 dice cloth’.

It was first played in the USA in 1855 in San Francisco. During prohibition Bunco was often associated with a speakeasy. The game saw a resurgence in early 2000. Points are accumulated based upon the round and dice totals with each roll.

Bunco is a game that anyone can play and no skill is required. This is also a great way for people to get to know one another since talking during a game is part of the experience. Near & Farr Friends have enjoyed this game several times over the three years that we have been meeting. We encourage newcomers to the area to join the fun at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Onekama Township Hall. New and experienced players are welcome!

Near & Farr Friends meet on Thursday from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Onekama Township Hall, located at 5435 Main Street for fun, games and lectures. There is no charge to attend the presentations or game days. Watch for posters and announcements on www.Onekama.info and Facebook at 1, Onekama,Michigan.
