I want to generate....

I want to generate....

8 colum bingo cards for a family reunion. All of the card generators I've looked at on-line produce the standard 5x5. I would want 8x5. Would excel work for random generation?

I can't help you with a card generator, or Excel.. But there is an "ancient technology" way of creating your cards..... if you are going to print them out.
Take you trusty pencil and a straight edge ( remember those ancient things? )and draw up your grid on a sheet of paper. use your scanner to scan the grid and save to your pc .. Print out the scanned image as many times as necessary.

No scanner ? You can use a digital camera to take a photo of your grid and then print from that .. That trick sometimes takes a few tries to get the photo of the grid just right for focus and size , but you can crop in your favourite photo handling program.

You are hilarious Dave! I'm a draftsperson by trade (used to be a Cartographer but I've been demoted over the years). I still have my Leroy set and pens. 8)

That ancient method will be a last resort because I'll probably have to generate about 100 random cards.....
