The numbers on the cards only go up to 60 instead of the usual 75. So I gave it four stars instead of 5 stars.
The DVD has the option of playing full card, straight line, or letters games. Each number has one of Thomas' friends associated with it. Thomas is number 49 and Harold is number 24 on the cards. Also each column has a different color. The "B" columm is colored blue and the "I" column is red. This is used to help identify what column the number is located in. During the game a number is called with the color of the column, and the character, and the number.
There are also short video clips shown during the game. It does take longer to play than a traditional bingo game but it is entertaining for the Thomas fan while practicing number identification.
The bingo boards and bingo chips are made out of a heavy card board and will not easily bend. The is also a thin plastic bag included to store the bingo chips.
