I grew up in Small Town, Missouri, USA, and our county fair included a game called Betsy Bingo. I could not find anything on this (and thought maybe I’d misremembered), but then discovered this story from Montana.
Turn Cow Poop into $10,000? Bingo!
Essentially a field is gridded off, each square/cell is sold or auctioned, and wherever Betsy poops, that person wins the jackpot. 🙂
The game I have in mind includes a bidding phase (maybe bidding, card drafting, etc. to get squares & potential actions for the 2nd phase) and a Betsy Poops phase (Programming + some element of “nudging” the cow to each players’ desired space).
Just a starting point idea, but I see it as a light/fun/family weight game based on the theme. Although I get a little giddy thinking about a midweight Euro with Beth Sobel-style realistic art of cows and their poo.
If anyone else has energy around this silly idea, please let me know and/or take it and make the game! Happy to collaborate, but I also want to be clear that I’d love someone to run with this – with or without me – so I can play it one day. 🙂
