One night in 1929, the owner of a struggling toy company, Edwin Lowe, stopped at a country carnival.
一九二九年的某天晚上,一家经营陷入困境的玩具公司的老板伫足於乡村嘉年华会会场。
carnival (n) 嘉年华会

Because of the late hour, everything was closed except one game stand, which was crowded with people waiting to play.
他叫艾德温.罗。由於时间已经很晚了,所以每个摊子都收摊了,只剩一个游戏摊前还排了很多人等着要玩。

When Lowe went over to check it out, he saw that each player had a small, square card with numbers.
艾德温.罗走过去一探究竟,他看到每个在玩的人手上都有张写满了数字的小方卡。
check (something) out (idiom) 查看某个事物或情况
Dan wants to check out the buffet to see what's on it.

As the caller yelled out numbers, those having matching numbers on their cards covered that space with a bean.
负责叫号的人喊出数字时,卡片上有那些数字的人就会在数字上放一颗豆子,
caller (n) 叫号者;呼叫者

Players won by covering all the numbers in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row.
凡是把直线、横线或对角线上的每个数字都放满的人就算赢了。
vertical (adj) 垂直的;纵向的
Vertical lines in your clothes will make you look taller and thinner.
horizontal (adj) 水平的;横向的
Tonight's sunset created beautiful horizontal lines of red and orange of the sky.
diagonal (adj) 对角线的
The teacher drew a diagonal line from the top right corner to the bottom left corner of the board.

They then shouted "Beano!" and were awarded a prize.
他们会大叫「宾诺!」然後可以得到一项奖品。

At three in the morning, people were still waiting to play.
到了凌晨三点,还有许多人等着要玩。

Edwin Lowe became convinced that this "beano" game was something he could sell.
艾德温.罗开始愈来愈有把握这个「宾诺」游戏应该很有商机。
convinced (adj) 确信的
After hearing Brad's side of the story, Tonya became convinced that he was telling the truth.

After returning home, he began developing his own form of the game and invited friends over to try it out.
回到家後,他开始构思属於自己的版本,并请朋友过来试玩。

On one occasion, a friend became so excited when she covered her squares that she mistakenly yelled out "B-B-B-BINGO!"
曾经有一次,某位朋友在她方形卡片上的数字连成一线时(*译注:有时多於一线,视游戏难易度而定。),太过兴奋,不小心叫成:「宾…宾…宾…宾果!」
