Each player should have at least one scoresheet.

Bingo scorecards include 25 squares with randomly assigned numbers and the word “BINGO” inscribed across the top. In a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row, you must cover 5 of those squares. [1]
Bingo scorecards are available online or at your local hobby store.
If you’re playing Bingo with children, you may get blank Bingo scorecards from the internet and fill in the squares with your own phrases, symbols, or drawings.

Explain how the game’s letter-number combinations operate to everyone.

There are 75 potential letter-number combinations in regular Bingo. A square on the scorecards corresponds to each letter-number combination. [2]
The numbers in the “B” column of the scorecard, for example, correspond to “B” letter-number combinations. If the caller selects “B-9,” check under the “B” column for the “9” square.
If you want to play a simpler version of Bingo with your kids, instead of letter-number pairings, you may use images or phrases.

Select a player to serve as the caller.

The caller is the one who calls out the letters and numbers that determine which squares on everyone’s scorecards are covered in Bingo. The caller is still allowed to participate in the game with the rest of the players. [3]
There will already be a dedicated caller if you’re playing at a Bingo hall. In that instance, the caller will not be able to play with the rest of the group.

Distribute scorecards to each player.

At least one scorecard is required for each player. Players are allowed to use several scorecards as long as they can keep track of all the letters and numbers on each one. [4]
Playing using many scorecards enhances your odds of winning, but it’s more difficult to keep track of all the squares.
It’s possible to win on more than one scorecard in the same game when you’re playing with several scorecards.

Place a chip in the centre of your scorecard’s square.

The square in the centre of each player’s scorecard is regarded a free space in Bingo. Everyone starts with a single chip on that spot.

Provide the caller with the letters and numbers that they will use in the game.

You may write the letters and numbers on little pieces of paper and fold them up, or you can use genuine Bingo balls with letters and numbers on them. All they have to do is match the letters and numbers on the scorecards. [6]
Place the pieces of paper or Bingo balls in a bucket, bowl, or Bingo spinner so that the caller may pick them at random.
Give the caller matching pictures or words to pick from if you’re playing Bingo with youngsters and the scorecards have pictures or words on them.
