NEKC 2023 Dama Bingo

Dama Bingo is another speed & consistency based competition format. For Amateur level players Dama Bingo not only tests a wider variety of tricks, but Dama Bingo also involves some strategy.


All rounds will be 1v1, head to head, & single elimination.

Before each round begins, contestants will be given a randomized board including all 25 of the tricks from the list, and you will be racing to complete tricks on the board before your opponent does.

Each contestant will be assigned either "X"s or "O"s to mark their spaces.

You can only mark a space after completing the trick, and you can only add your mark to unmarked spaces.

You can win your round by completing a full line of 5 tricks before your opponent completes any of the tricks in that line.

But if neither contestant is able to complete a full line, once all of the tricks have been completed, the contestant with the most total tricks on the board will be the winner.

Who can compete in Dama Bingo?

All players can & are encouraged to compete in both Addon & Freestyle.

All players that do not compete at a pro level may also pick 1 of the 4:

1. Beginner Speed Ladders

2. Intermediate Speed Ladders

3. Advanced Speed Ladders

4. Amateur Division - Dama Bingo (Cash Prize)

If you are a sponsored player you may be asked not to compete in any of these 4 divisions depending on your skill level.

Which division should you pick?

For Dama Bingo you should be able to complete all tricks in your division within 2-4 tries on average.

If you can not do some of the tricks within 5 tries you may want to break those tricks down and practice them to increase your consistency. But every player will have more trouble with some tricks than others.

If you can do every trick on the list in 2 tries you probably should not be competing in Speed Ladders or Dama Bingo.

Sandbagging, AKA competing in a lower division than is appropriate for your skills, may make it easier to win, but actually makes you a loser.

Dont be a loser, you will learn and grow more from challenging yourself. And we want every division to have a close competition.
