Default 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.

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?

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.

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.
