Stephen “The Maestro” Kaplan, loves Bingo. He has discovered a wealth of possibilities for Bingo related entertainment and is launching two Bingo related products this summer:
- A Maze’n Bingo (the board game) and
- Pass or Play (The Game Show)
Kaplan says this will impact the whole gaming industry from Bingo to Casino, and from Lottery to Online.
Throw in a little TV into the mix and BOOM: Bingo Entertainment Empire!
A Maze’n Bingo is a Board Game that he says turns Bingo into a game of strategy. Pass or play is a Bingo Game Show that has five contestants involved in a very unique elimination game based on a Bingo draw. Both games are fully audience interactive.
The Board Game is in the process of two major undertakings for this summer:
- A Kickstarter campaign currently underway to raise funds to market, manufacture and distribute, and
- A Fundraising Tournament on August 23 (with qualifying games in the two weeks prior). This event will be a socially-distant compliant, exclusive event to the benefit of Make-A-Wish Canada. It will showcase and document the capabilities of this board game as low cost, fundraising games for non-profit and charitable organizations. It will be held at the Golden Parrots Restaurant and Pub in Coquitlam BC. During the Grand Finale’ the 4 finalists will compete on a giant outdoor game board and will be the pawns. A second half of that day’s event will be the debut of Kaplan’s Bingo Game Show; Pass or Play. The domain is up and includes a countdown clock to that day. Although they are both based on Bingo, both games are played entirely different.
