If you want a bingo also including the animals shown on paintings, etc… you might prefer this one :
The goal of this bingo is to send/receive postcards picturing common animals. There is a list of 40 animals that should be common enough on postcards to be collected.
Here are some rules:
Only official and registered cards will count. Travelling or expired cards will not.
There are two separate lists: one for sent cards, one for received cards
If you have more than one account, you may use all of them for this bingo, but only separately, not combined.
Update your lists frequently in your first post. That’s the one I will keep an eye on, and it’s the one that counts. So please don’t post your list several times, just update the first one and include the date of your last update.
You can make a link as follows: butterfly (minus the *)
It will then look like this: butterfly
Only real photos of real animals count. We know some drawings can be very lifelike, but drawings will lead to endless debates whether Daffy Duck should be counted as a bird or not.
There could be one, multiple or mixed animals on the picture. The same postcard could participate only once in this bingo. For instance, if the postcard shows zebra+lion, it cannot be submitted twice, for both animals.
I’m aware that senders/receivers can delete pictures of all sent/received postcards, which could cause a problem if someone deletes one of your animal cards. Therefore I would advice you to upload a picture of each animal card (or a screenshot of the Postcrossing page of that card) to Flickr or anything alike, just for future reference in case something like this happens. I don’t think it will happen often, or ever at all, but just to be sure.
Please keep an eye on your list. Even if you don’t receive/send any cards for this bingo for some time, please edit your update date, so I can see you’re still active with this bingo.
Whenever someone reaches a BINGO!, all other participants will send her/him a postcard as a prize. I will distribute the address as needed.
