Storyline

The rules for Lingo have been updated for season 2. The team that goes to the bonus round gets a bonus letter for winning, and also a bonus letter for each Lingo in the main game. Also, if the winning team makes a lingo on the first ball in Bonus Lingo, they win a trip, worth about $10,000. If they get a lingo using 2 or more balls, they win $5,000.

Fast word game that is both challenging and fun!
28 December 2002 | by (New Orleans, United States) – See all my reviews

Lingo is a pretty cool show. It's like that children's game, Mastermind, but instead of patterns of colors, you use five letter words. It's less of a trivia and more vocabulary. Lots of fun to watch and play at home! I would recommend it to anyone.
