May 2024 Update

May 2024 Update

Our latest update is here to make your bingo card creation experience even smoother and more intuitive. We've implemented several improvements based on your feedback, making it faster to start from templates, easier to customize your settings, and more user-friendly navigation. Dive into the details below!

Improvements:

  • Start modal when accessing /generator/: Quickly start from a template, style, or one of your own cards, speeding up card creation.
  • Separation of "setup" and "styles" options: Options are now divided into tabs when configuring online play settings, streamlining your setup process.
  • New max font size control: Control your default max font size for your card in the card designer, and then optionally override that for each PDF on the print page. This will help you keep uniform card font sizes (if that's your preference) while we still auto-adjust text to fit within squares if you have some long words!
  • New mega navigation on our site: Find new templates quicker with our redesigned mega navigation, making it easier to discover the perfect template for your game.
