Now you can print your own bingo cards in four different ways. Click on the style below that is most appropriate for your players, or print different cards for different players if you have a group with mixed abilities.
Set of 75 traditional cards in an easy-to-read format sized at 8.5" X 11". Each card is different, providing a way for up to 75 players to play at a time.
Set of 30 easy-to-read cards with the numbers in chronological order down each column; e.g., 4, 7, 11. These cards can make playing easier for cognitively impaired or young players.
Set of 25 easy-to-read cards with consecutive numbers down each column; e.g., B1, B2, B3, B4, B5. They make playing even easier for cognitively impaired or very young players.
Set of 30 sheets with two cards per sheet. This style is ideal for players who like a more challenging game, since they can easily play two cards at a time.

- For disposable cards, use an inexpensive regular weight paper. (Players can use daubers, pencils, or felt pens to mark their cards. There is no need for bingo chips or moveable spot markers.)
- Make your own special occasion cards. Print colored cards for different occasions. Use pastel-colored 8.5" X 11" paper (e.g., pink for Valentine’s Day; light green for St. Patrick’s Day; pastel yellow for Easter). Decorate with seasonal stickers or clip art.
- Mix and match your cards. Use a variety of colored papers to print a set of bingo cards. (Print five sheets on blue, five on pink, five on yellow, etc.) Players can then choose their “lucky” color.
- Make your own five-letter cards. First, print a set of cards. Then, cut off the top BINGO letters and glue the grid of numbers to a blank sheet of paper, lining them up along the bottom edge. Finally, write other letters over the columns (NURSE, HOWDY, BRIDE, etc.)
- Make your own special bingo items. Print any of the card options above onto 8.5" X 11" iron-on transfer sheets (available at most computer and office supply stores). Press the transfers onto T-shirts or canvas totes to make extra-special bingo prizes or gifts. Print onto magnet sheets, sticker pages, or clear decal sheets to create other special bingo projects. Note: Your printer must be capable of printing reverse or mirrored pages for some projects. Follow the package instructions.

Playing the Game:
Bingo is a game of chance played with randomly drawn numbers, which players match against numbers pre-printed onto 5" X 5" matrixes. But the game itself can take many forms. The most popular forms are traditional or straight-line bingo, where the goal is to cover five squares in a row—either diagonally, vertically, or horizontally, and coverall/blackout bingo, where players must cover every number on their card.
