Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was selected by The World Bunco Association (WBA) to host the 5th Annual World Bunco Championship scheduled for April 30-May 2, 2010.
Bunco has seen a steady rise in popularity in recent years. This game has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon, with the Wall Street Journal reporting an estimated 17.4 million active bunco players. Bunco is especially popular amongst suburban women, preferring the luck-based dice game to Poker night.
Bunco is normally played in groups of 12, broken down into groups of four people seated at three tables. Players toss three dice and try to roll the selected number of that round. Every instance the number is rolled, 1 point is scored - the goal is to reach 21 points. If all three dice display that round’s number, the player yells, “Bunco!” and automatically wins that round.
The Bunco Beach Championship Tournament at Sandestin Luxury Beach Resort Florida is expected to draw hundreds of participants for a weekend full of Bunco, games and prizes. Those new to the game can easily join in on the fun and experience why such a simple dice game has such a dedicated following.
Sandestin is offering special rates for the tournament dates and an extended stay if attendees want to take advantage of the awesome complimentary amenities and beautiful beachfront surroundings.
