Combola is a game I made up which is a lot like Bingo.  The first to
cover a row (a line across) or to cover all  3 marked numbers
wins. The marks can customize the game  to the occasion. Hearts
for Valentine's Day, a balloon  for a birthday, an egg for Easter,
etc.
To make your own Combola:
To Play:
Give each player a game card & a crayon.

Draw a number gem.  I keep my gems in a pouch.
Players mark off numbers as they are called.
The first to cover a row (a line across) or to cover all 3 marked
numbers wins.
When a player wins, they yell "Combola!"
If you want to reuse your game sheets, use pennies as markers.
Notes from Stephanie:
I've used this game at birthday parties & class parties at school. It's great for large groups.
I like having prizes for games. Some prize ideas: large balloons, any kind of noise maker,
sunglasses, small squirt toys, pencils, pens, sticker sheets, tattoos, candy, crazy straws, toy
medals...
Print the Combola game cards.
Each page has five game cards. Cut to make individual game cards.
Print 2 Combola grids. I use card stock. Glue one grid to
to a larger sheet of paper (I used red scrap booking
paper).
Use the other grid to
make the glass
numbers. Cut the
numbers out & glue
them to the backs of
clear glass gems.  
The gems are
available at craft &
some dollar stores.  I
used tacky glue
which is strong &
dries clear.
"Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game."
