Dublin Doors Neighbors Bingo

One of the things that I love about Dublin doors is the pairs that you find. I call two doors situated side-by-side "neighbors". In this variation of our Dublin treasure hunt, we'll play Neighbors Bingo. You can play this Dublin neighborhood scavenger hunt solo or with a few friends. The idea is to look for neighbors in different colors that match your bingo card. First one to find all the squares in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row can call out "Bingo!" You can make the game harder by requiring players to fill in all the squares on the card to declare Bingo. Make it easier by setting a specific time limit and whoever fills in the most squares during that time wins.

If a pair of colors appears on your Bingo card in both the horizontal and vertical direction, certain neighbors will fit in multiple places. You can either count that door in both squares that it fits or pick one that is to your best advantage. Agree the rules that you plan to play by with your friends in advance.
