CovidterÍa

¿Que es Covidtería?

Una combinación de la palabra covid, y la palabra lotería. Lotería es un juego de mesa mexicano muy popular, y se juega de una manera similar al bingo. Cuando una persona gana una ronda de lotería, el ganador grita “lotería” en vez de “bingo”. Por medio de la combinación de las palabras “covid” y “lotería” creamos la palabra “Covidtería.”

What is Covidtería?

The word “Covid” is combined with the Spanish word “loteria” (which means “lottery”). There’s a very popular Mexican board game called “Lotería” and it’s similar to how the game bingo is played. When a person wins a loteria game, the winners shouts “Lotería” (instead of ‘bingo’ as it would be in English). Through a combination of the words “Covid” and “loteria” we get the word “Covidtería,” and also created a new twist for the beloved board game “Lotería,” to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

How can I play Covidtería?

To join the fun, just follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Go to www.kansashealth.org/covidteria to download your very own Covidtería tabla. A ‘tabla’ is the Covidtería game card that resembles a bingo card with lots of images scattered randomly on each tabla (or game card). There are over 20 tablas to choose from, so visit the Kansas Health Foundation web site to get started! If you have access to a printer, please download your tabla(s) of choice. If you don’t have a printer, that’s ok! You can still choose your tabla from the web site and just keep track of what images that are called out.
  • Step 2: Then go to the Kansas Hispanic and Latino American Affairs Commission (KHLAAC) Facebook page to participate in the Covidtería Facebook Live event at https://www.facebook.com/KSHispanicAndLatinoAffairs.
  • Step 3: Wash your hands! As we continue to try and prevent the coronavirus, let’s keep washing hands and keep safe distances from others. Plus, we’ll be handling small items such as uncooked pinto beans to cover the tablas.
  • Step 4: Gather about 15-20 uncooked pinto beans, beads or water bottle caps so you can place these items over your tabla once the game caller begins calling out the images
  • Step 5: Once you log onto the Covidtería Facebook Live event, get ready to watch the Covidtería card caller to find out if your card is chosen! Each player will have time to find the image on their tabla, so that you can place an uncooked pinto bean on your tabla!
  • Step 6: When the Covidtería card caller chooses the cards, place an uncooked pinto bean, bead or whatever you can to fill the card if and when the images on your card (tabla) are called. Once your entire tabla is filled, then you are the game winner! Make sure you quickly type into the Facebook Live comment section the following words: “Covidtería.” A person is the game winner if they are the first player to fill their entire card!
  • Step 7: During the Covidería game, while you continue to be on Facebook Live for the event, feel free to type out questions or comments that you’d like to ask about COVID-19! We are here to help answer questions.
  • Step 8: Get ready to have some fun, learn about the importance of COVID-19 vaccines and perhaps win a prize!
