By Bingo I mean these multiplayer solitaire games where one player picks the objects of play at random, declares what it is (usually simply by number) then all the other players play that same object however they wish (and hopefully differently to each other.)

Examples that come to mind are Limes, Karuba, Take It Easy/Higher/to the Limit, Augustus.

I'm thinking Limes will be my favorite in this genre, which is why I ordered a copy, but I haven't received it yet, so I don't yet have experience in the genre.

What are your thoughts on the genre? As it says on the tin, what's your favorite, and why?

I have quite a few games in this genre. My favorite is Das Labyrinth des Pharao, which I find to be a little deeper than most such games without being as fiddly as something like Take it Higher. Unfortunately it's hard to get outside Germany.

My favorite fast and easy game of this type is Finito!. There have been a lot of more recent dice-based games, though, such as Qwixx and expansions, Qwinto, Rolling Japan, etc.

I LOVE Karuba, but have never thought of it as bingo.

Augustus would have been my choice looking at the thrad title, as long as you can convince people to play quickly, it's good fun!

My favorite, though not quite fitting Melody's definition, is Machi Koro. It is dice roll bingo in which you reinvest your winnings into getting more boards.
