On a side note when does a pond become a lake? A stream become a river? A hill become a mountain? A rock become a planet (Pluto).

I'd call that a pair.

Three *might* be close to a 'row' ... but still a 'trio'. Or a 'small row'. Tough.

I'd say four pins, comfortably.

Four. Cuz when you wanted a "bingo row" at Pincon, that's how many I brought. :-P

Four bingos??? fuzz. Sorry, I missed the PinCon. That would be an experience.

I say three or more. Two is just a pair, one beside the other. While three of them in a line make a linear pattern, creating an alignment.

That's deep. I almost felt stoned reading that. lol

Lots of great answers and thoughts. I believe Pindude152 might have had the longest row of Bingos ever assembled in Canada let alone for quality and top names.

Here's another thought. When does a row or room of machines become an arcade? Any "man cave" (hate the term) can have a pin or two. What would define an arcade?

Oh boy. I think at least five games BUT there have to be two different kinds of machines.

Done!
