Housie is fun game(like Bingo or Tambola) that you can play with your family or friends without any need to buy the materials like tickets and number pool like people used to do traditionally. Best part is that, it has an integrated chat system, so you can type messages while playing and it will be shown on the projector screen. So go and check it out if you wanna relive the old school gaming style with a modern twist.
Housie lets you play a group game similar like Bingo or Tambola. One person can be a host and invite other people to join by sending a code through email or they can just pass it on to whomsoever they wanna play with.
People can join by entering the code and the game begins. There are two screens, one for playing which shows ticket on each player's screen and other is the projector screen which shows numbers one by one.
There is a speech synthesizer also, so that players can hear number while playing. So the players can focus on their tickets more, rather than on projector screen. Housie allows you to send messages on projector screen, so you can have a fun interaction while playing.
