Roadkill Bingo Includes:
Object of Game:
Operation Desert Storm troops passed the time on Saudi Arabia highways by playing Roadkill Bingo! An Army Sergeant passed out the four Roadkill Bingo cards from a 'West Coast' version of the game to his truck convoy drivers, prior to departing King Khalid Military City.
The Sergeant explained the Roadkill Bingo rules: "If your vehicle hits an animal, the games is over," and announced some critical substitutions required to play the game on the Main Supply Route to Daharan. Abandoned cars, camels and empty water bottles were substituted for the deer, rabbit and skunk on the West Coast version.
The convoy would stop to compare Roadkill Bingo cards at each rest stop and the troops spotted many 'URKs' (unidentified Roadkill), smells, snakes, shoes and produce along the 450 mile route. "We really enjoyed playing Roadkill Bingo and achieved a Bingo prior to arriving safely in Daharan," the Sergeant reported.
Final Analysis: Everyone likes Roadkill Bingo!
