Africa Bingo 🦒

This is undoubtedly the most difficult Bingo of all as very few Postcrossers live in Africa.
Please consult the list of African countries on official Postcrossing.

The idea is to collect 15 / 25 of these countries in sent or received
to get Bingo!. Because this task is so difficult you can use states with limited recognition or non-sovereign states on the official postcrossing list as a bonus.

Create a list with the countries you received so far.
The best thing is to use a direct link to the postcard itself:
Code:

[url=http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/ZA-13909]1: South Africa[/url]

(because if a sender/receiver quits postcrossing, their page disappears, but the postcard page will still exist.)
To get the url: go to your page with sent/received cards. Move your cursor to the ID, right-click and select “copy link address”

  • Only official sent and received cards are counted to the bingo and there are separate lists for them.
  • If you have several accounts, you may play on all of them separately, but not combined.
  • When you update your list do it to your first post by editing it. Remember to put the date when you have updated it the last time.
  • Even if there are no changes in your lists, update date from time to time so that I know you still participate in the game.
  • When you get Bingo! you will receive a postcard from all the other players.
  • If you click your name in the rank-list, you will be taken directly to your own list

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Any person to reach 15 or 25 African countries shouts Bingo.
