I'm hosting a Bunco party (first timer) and could use suggestions for food, beverages and desserts for 12 ladies. Any thoughts?

I'm curious. What is a Bunco party?

RE: Bunco party food

I loved playing Bunco, and especially loved hostessing. We were a themed type group. Our gifts were usually related somehow, picnic stuff, small appliances, beauty stuff...etc. so I liked to do the food the same way. The most popular one was a soup and salad bar. I made two homemade soups, different breads and bought everything to make a big salad bar. It was a big hit. I've done meat trays and sandwiches and bought little croissants at Costco. I made my own meat and cheese tray, it's way cheaper. I usually make a veggie tray also. Some bunco parties just serve finger food type stuff. Anyway, hope this gives you some ideas.

Hi, I've seen y'all at the KT. This is my first time here,just checking out some different forums.

Nookie, Bunco is a dice game. I've only played one time when I subbed for someone. It was fun but I had no idea what was going on most of the night.

I think you have 4 people at each table and the one across from you is your partner, but not for very long. I think you roll 3 dice and try for ones, twos,etc. During the game somebody rings a bell for some reason, then I think you move to another table or rotate around your table, something. It wasn't hard but I just didn't know any of the rules or the people so felt out of place. I think the bell is rung when someone gets a Bunco, which I can't remember what that is,lol. Clear as mud now, you wanta play??

I would love to find a group that plays it around here and get to meet people but since I know so little about the game and no even fewer people than rules, I'll have to pass.

It's been so long ago that I played, but I think they did have nice gifts.

Hopefully Mona or DN will come back and explain the game better. I mainly wanted you to know it was a dice game.
