Southern Hemisphere Bingo

Southern Hemisphere Bingo

Did you know that in the world, only about 10% of the population lives below the equator? The purpose of this bingo is to celebrate sending or receiving postcards to those in the Southern Hemisphere.

The goal of this bingo is to send a postcard to/receive a postcard from 10/15/20/etc. countries/territories, with the postcard originating/arriving below the equator. (That is, for countries that are located in both hemispheres, only those postcards originating/arriving in the Southern Hemisphere will count.)

Rules
  1. Only the official Postcrossing postcards are counted towards the bingo. There is a separate list for both sent and received postcards.

  2. Update your lists regularly by editing your FIRST post and include the postcard link. (Please link the actual postcard itself, not the user profile, as to ensure that the postcard itself came from or went to the Southern Hemisphere.) Posts without links won’t be included in the rankings. Don’t post several times, only the FIRST post will be counted. Please make a separate list for sent and received cards.

  3. Whenever you update your first post with new countries, please add the date of the update.

  4. If you have several accounts, you may play all of them separately, but not combined.

  5. I will make rankings to this post and update it at least once a month.

  6. You have a BINGO? Congratulations! Your prize is a postcard from every other participant, so please send me your address and I will distribute it to everyone else.

Below is a list of countries that are either fully or partially located in the Southern Hemisphere. There are a lot of options, but with the population being sparse, it may be difficult to have a postcard sent to/from many of the countries/territories! There are 68 in total; 7 have no postcards sent; 18 have no members; 18 have 1-5 members (data as of 17-jan-2020). Best of luck!
