Bingo! Tips to create your own bingo cards to engage attendees


Want attendees at your events to hang on the speaker’s every word? Use keywords from the presentation to create custom bingo cards. Attendees listen for the word or term, cross them off then win prizes for five in a row!

I discovered this great site for creating your own cards: Print-Bingo. You can generate up to five pages of cards for free, but it makes sense to pay the whopping $12 for three years of access and unlimited cards.

Five Tips for Making Your Own Bingo Cards:

  1. You can choose 1, 2 or 4 cards per page. Yes, it’ll save paper if you put more on a page, but you’ll have to cut all the cards to size.
  2. The site generates a PDF document, which I converted to a PowerPoint document (using a free tool). Then I modified the PowerPoint theme so that my cards had my logo and a lot of color.
  3. If you’re going to add your logo in the PowerPoint template, leave the center space blank so your logo is front and center.
  4. Customize your cards even more by changing “BINGO” to a custom word. I chose “Nerdy.”
  5. Watch the size of your fonts during the conversion. Bigger fonts seemed to knock everything out of alignment when I converted to PowerPoint.
