Bird Bingo


Christine Berrie is a Glasgow based illustrator who has worked for The Guardian, The New York Times, Time Out and Penguin Books. She recently designed this beautifully illustrated bingo game - Bird Bingo - for Magma that features 64 species of birds from the robin to the puffin and the kookaburra to the barn owl. The game contains 64 illustrated bird tokens, one board, 12 bingo cards, colorful counters for you to mark up your card and an information leaflet. 

Christine shares: "The game brings a fun and educational twist to the traditional version of bingo as players learn the names and colorings of both their favorite species and weird and wonderful exotic birds."
