My gf used to play bingo for years and she isn’t sure if you mean a bingo card (which most games are played on) or a bingo board played during intervals and has far fewer numbers (in the UK). I’ve put the answer as the bingo card.

Tracey B

How many numbers are there on a standard bingo board ? help, this is confusing as when i play bingo its by book and you mark the numbers, so it would be 90 numbers, if it’s the boards where you swipe it would be 24, but i have also seen boards where there are 15, and that is offline, lol,

oh and the american version is 75, lol

@Tracey B have you ever played the Canadian (presumably the same as the American) game? It’s a nightmare. The playable numbers could be in any of the 5 columns and the paper card is so big it needs to be spread over 2 tables!

I agree. The question was in the World, not the UK. General Hospital is the longest running soap opera in the World and is a US soap

Khadija

@daniel . General hospital is also shown as the longest running soap opera in the guinness book of records.

Jane
Member

Today’s question doesn’t state that it is a TV soap so have put the radio one.

STEVEN

I think you’re right!

Wendy

I googled it and it came up with a tv one which I think everyone is aware of, so I put this.

Susan

I had to cheat today and google the answer as I have never watched the programme.

Lee

Googling today’s (to try and make sure) gives 2 answers – I’ve put what I believe is the most likely to be meant, though the other came up first in the results.

Susan
Member
Susan

Only getting one result, don’t know where you got two from?

Lee
Member
Lee

Just came up with the two on my search results page. I use Bing, rather than Google, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.
