How to Make People Bingo Cards

It's easy to make your own People Bingo cards. They can be as fancy as you want or printed on plain old printer paper. That's what I do. Easy.

If you have a big budget and don't want to bother doing this part yourself, you can buy bingo cards online. There are companies out there that allow you to customize them. Try:

  • Teachnology has a card maker that allows you to shuffle the phrases on each card.
  • allows you to customize with your own words or use their suggestions.

One of the great things about playing People Bingo is that you can customize the people characteristics on the cards based on your specific group of people. Have a wild and crazy group? You'll have a lot of fun. Need to spice up a dull group? You'll want to be a little more conservative, but you can still rock their world. A little.
