Someone Just Created A Salvadoran Lotería And Where Has This Been My Entire Life?!
If you’re Mexican, chances are you have played Lotería. The game originated in Mexico and is very similar to Bingo except that it uses illustrations instead of numbers. Even though it’s a very low maintenance game people tend to get loud and very involved while playing. Basically, this game is always a good time.
For every Salvadoreño who has ever wished for there to be a Salvadoran version of Lotería… we are hooking you up!
After already selling out once, the mitú Mercado is restocking Milton Lara’s Lotería Salvadoreña. The Salvadoran version of Lotería uses images and names of Salvadoran items, foods and characters. Many of the items found in the game are not just specific to El Salvador, but it’s the way it’s said that makes it a true Salvadoran experience.
Let’s see how well you can understand each one of these cards.
El Mundo is an ode to el Divino Salvador del Mundo monument located in San Salvador.
El Chucho is how we refer to these adorable four-legged creatures.
El Campesino is one of the most hardworking people we know and very deserving of their own card.
La Helada is what we know as cerveza or beer.
El Bicho (not to be confused with another b word) is that annoying little kid that’s always around.
La Cipota is what we would call la chica or la dama.
El Coco is an ode to those refreshing coconuts we enjoy on a hot day in El Salvador. Nothing tastes better.
La Silla is where we sit when we’re lounging at abuela’s house or en el parque.
La Chulona is a classic example of how we make everything extra because chulona means chula…but extra.
La Pupusera you recognize even if you aren’t Salvadoran. You know this woman makes the best pupasas you’ve ever had in your life…aside from mom’s.
La Pupusa does not need any explanation.
