Updated on August 17, 2011

Tambola - the game with Family and Friends

Tambola is played on a basic principle. A player/organisor calls the Number/CUE one at a time and players need to strike Numbers on their tickets.

Tamobla/Houzee/Housie can be played in different ways depending on target audience. Generally it is played with Numbers being called out and user strike out Numbers on their Tickets.

For Senior, Under-graduate, Post Graduate Students it could be a Quiz, Event with Multiple Choice Questions type. And at times it could be just formatted with the Theme of your Event. Playing Tambola remains the same but with a Twist and fun..

Rules for playing Tambola/Housie

You can download/copy/save/print these rules and make changes in these rules when you play your Tambola/houzee Game

A caller needs to pick a CUE without seeing the box/container containing CUEs

A caller needs to shake the box/container containing CUEs, if asked by a player

A player can claim a WINNING only before the next CUE is called out (e.g. Say 50 was called out and a player wins a WINNING on CUE 50. He/she does not claims his/her WINNING before the next CUE is called out. Then he/she can't claim his/her winning)

If a player claims that he/she has won a particular WINNING, then CALLER or ORGANISOR needs to check his/her claim by matching his/her Ticket with all the CUEs called out. If it is found that player claimaing a specific WINNING was false, then his/her ticket is BOOGY i.e. this Ticket cannot play further. In such a case, if there are any prizes already Won on this ticket then the player doesn't loses these already won prizes

In case of a TIE on a particular CUE for a particular WINNING, either prize can be distributed among all players involved in the TIE or could be given to the player who CLAIMED it first

A player can't WIN more than 1 WINNINGS. If a player has already won a WINNING, he can't claim another WINNING, but can play for a FULL House. (Optional)
