The basic outline is that they will need a program that can generate cards containing a matrix of colors & letters (similar to bingo cards) and output these "cards" to a printer.
An example is attached.
Program / Software that:
Allows for the creation and printing of the random cards
The admin / creation section of the program would include:
Ability to change the Letters in the top column
Ability to change the Colors that will show up (it will always be 8 colors)
Ability to define the number of the horizontal columns
Ability to Add a Title to the top of the page, and text info at the bottom of the page
Ability to select which "perm" to be printed. We will need 3 different "perms" of 1000 different card faces each. (3000 total different card faces)
Each card face will have a unique serial number (0001-3000)
Ability to put two card faces on a single page.
This can be done in Excel.
The way this game is played:
A caller speaks a letter and a color to a group of players.
The players will "dab" with a marker on the sheet as the caller reads the letter and color.
Once a player fills an entire horizontal row they win.
For example, the caller would call F-Yellow, and the player would dab a marker on all the Yellow squares in the F row. The caller would continue calling Letter/Colors until a player filled all the spaces in a horizontal row. Once the player fills an entire horizontal row, filling one in each letter column in the same horizontal row, they win the game.
When there are 8 horizontal columns, a player can get a horizontal row or a diagonal as a win.
