WTF is Bunco?

I've heard of it before. I think a lot of the women around here play it. We're supposedly getting invited to the neighborhood (of the new house) Bunco game.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Yes, "Playing Bunco" has also been used as a codename for "Swapping Spouses".

Isn't that why people get married?

I did Google it, but the rules sites I found were down with bandwidth errors or somesuch. Plus I thought someone here might have an opinion.*

No but I looked it up:

Quote:
Also as "bunko".
See "bunco squad".

The original "bunco" was a dishonest gambling game. Can be used to imply deceit and fraud.
In the old days, Sgt. Joe Friday and Officer Gannon on the TV show "Dragnet", working out of the bunko squad, would bust some scam artist for conning some little old ladies.

I've seen enough 70's movies/TV to know what those are.

Re: WTF is Bunco?

Bunco parties? Pretty zippy neighborhood you're moving into!

We have an annual progressive Martini night that really helps you get to know your neighbors.
