Happy Anniversary Lotería!

Have you ever heard of the game Lotería? I first discovered this game of chance when I was living in Mexico. It kind of reminds me of Bingo, yet so much more! The cards are filled with art and traditionally beans are used as markers.

From this day forward, you can actually play a version of Lotería online, thanks to the Google Doodle. They have posted an interactive virtual version of Lotería. You can even play with friends! This Google Doodle is a collaboration of Mexican and Mexican-American illustrators. They have reinterpreted the traditional imagery, and even added a few new ones!

The game was officially copyrighted on this day 106 years ago. I love this game and the folk art that goes along with it, how about you?

 ¡Feliz Aniversario, Lotería!
