Game cards The British, of course, have their own form of bingo cards, but the Canadian and American layouts are globally popular. Both are marked with 25 squares in five columns of five rows, with all but the middle containing a number up to 75 (the middle square is your “free space” which you can mark from the off). The letters B – I – N – G – O appear across the top of the card, with each column corresponding to a fixed group of numbers, like so:
B – Numbers 1 to 15
I – Numbers 16 to 30
N – Numbers 31 to 45
G – Numbers 46 to 60
O – Numbers 61 to 75.
