Bingo Blotter?
This is a very silly question. Where can I buy a bingo blotter? I played a lot of bingo on my last cruise and wished I had one. I have been to WalMart, Walgreens, etc. etc. I generally look under office or school supplies. I also tried the party supply department in WalMart. Am I looking in the wrong place? Where can I purchase one to take on my next cruise? THANK YOU!

Look in the dollar stores, I have seen them there, or I can bet there are a million on ebay. Search with the word dobber.

What is a dobber ?

I always thought a dobber was a type of wasp. Google Images shows a lot of fishing gear.

The Scotts have a slang meaning, you'll have to look that one up yourself.

Okay, now you all know how often I play bingo! lol. I gather the correct term is "dobber." I did take Tripp's advice and went to a dollar store and bought a bright orange one. What it is called on the outside of the bottle is "Bingo Marker". Plain and simple!! Now, my next question is, the bottle is 2.80 oz. Will I be able to put it in my carry-on on the plane?

Double/triple zip lock it,and put in your checked baggage..or check the TSA guidelines ..think it's 2oz ...

Not checking any luggage. All carry on.

you mean they don't give you beans to cover you spots? I have never played cruise ship bingo - but the players seem to get the best seats for the show.

Last time I flew TSA allowed 3.2 oz. it it is always good to check. TSA seems to be a moving target.

What ships play with a dauber? I've only seen the holes punched out .

Seems easier to just dob over the number...

Could you just use a common highliter?

Golden1 March 6th, 2012 04:10 PM

Yes, I guess you could use a highlighter. I think I might have done that last time. However, I do recall being jealous of the other people who had that small bottle of ink. Kind of like watching other people eat ice-cream when you have none! It was easier to tell if you had bingo.
