But what if you have more than 12 players? There's no sense in buying 2 Jumbo Pokeno's, because the cards are the same in all boxes. What you need is 1 regular Pokeno set and one set of Pokeno Too. Pokeno Too comes in a blue box, and it has 12 game boards and 200 chips. With one set of regular Pokeno and one set of Pokeno Too combined, you can have up to 24 players. I don't know any way of accommodating more than 24 players.
Pokeno is a combination of poker and bingo, played like bingo. Instead of playing with a standard bingo card everyone uses a Pokeno card, which has card names and suits on it. As card names are called out, players cover the cards with their poker chips until one of them wins the game. There are other variations of the game that can make it more interesting to play. An electronic version of Pokeno is available to play at most casinos.
Decide whether you are playing standard Pokeno, where a player wins with is five cards in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally, or if you are going to play a variation like four corners or full card.
Continue calling cards until one of the players has five in a row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The player may also have the four outside corners or a full card if you are playing one of those variations. When the player gets what he needs to win on his card he calls out Pokeno.
