Liberty Bingo Review by Lori Hooten

Liberty Rings! is a company that has created a series of educational products that inspire and encourage the learning and understanding of the principles of freedom and liberty. These are the principles that the founding fathers had in mind when creating the U.S. Constitution. Liberty Rings! has created this line of educational products for students and families, with plenty of icons, games, and artwork.

Liberty Rings! has based the games and activities on 28 principles. These principles were extracted from the study of the U.S. Constitution by Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, a top authority on the Constitution. The principles cover everything from the role of the family and the role of the creator to the founding fathers. Principles such as the separation of powers and having an educated electorate are important in the Constitution and are included.

Liberty Bingo is a game of bingo focused on these 28 principles. It uses the typical bingo game set-up with calling cards, playing cards, and markers. Each square on the playing card is a different one of the principles. The calling cards have a picture on one side to illustrate the principle and the words to describe the principle on the other side. The playing cards have the same thing: an image on one side and words on the other. This makes it a game that can be used by students in the younger elementary grades all the way up through adults.

Also included is a booklet that explains a little bit about each of the 28 principles. There are a few sentences about each principle, which is sufficient for most of them, but a few could use more information. Each also includes a quote from the book written by Dr. Skousen. The game is printed in full color and comes tucked nicely in a sturdy box, making it easy to store or transport for game nights.

Bingo games are simple to play and are engaging. We have had this game for a few weeks and it gets played several times a week. We have used the booklet when a question gets asked about one of the principles. The principles are being learned through discussion and repetition.

Liberty Bingo is a fun game that teaches through play. Combining fun and games always makes for a good time. By learning these principles, the appreciation for the way our country was set up and founded grows. This creates a stronger country as more people learn and understand the Constitution.
