2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Michelaneous by Michele on March 15, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
But were afraid to ask??? This is a very comprehensive gathering of facts and anecdotes about the popular parlor game, bunko (aka bunco, bonko, etc.) played extensively in suburban homes throughout the country. The author has gathered history and statistics about the game and the people (mostly women) who play it, and has peppered the results throughout this quick read of 170 pages. Some of the more interesting tidbits include "over a hundred women who've been playing for at least 40 years," and of the 7 million (!) who play, the average age is 40-something, and 92% of the players are female.

I found it a little disjointed the way the text interchanges the spelling of the word (C vs. K) at any given time, including the name of the established Bunco Association and one of the original books on the subject, The Sisterhood of Bunko (C or K, I don't know) . . . but I loved reading about all the different versions of the game and wished there were more suggestions or creative examples of themes for bunko parties. Anyone with a remote interest in this game will enjoy this book as a novelty, but I think most of this information is already available in either published material or online.

I have ordered this book for an upcoming fundraiser and after two weeks still have not received the book and have tried to contact the Customer service number I was given and the phone just rings and rings. Tried to find an email address to check on the status and cannot find anything. Never received an email with any tracking numbers after I ordered the book but my credit card has been charged!
