Bingo for School

Monday, August 16th, 2010

It’s easy for us at Perceptus to know when school is back in session in North America. Traffic doubles from the lazy lull of summer at!

So, here’s our annual suggestion for teachers around America and everywhere else, try our back to school bingo template – it’s our word list of school related terms. Or, you might want to try our Ice Breaker bingo template – it’s a great way for your students to meet each other.

Basic use of is free. A cheap upgrade of $10 will get you a bunch more features! Works with Google Chrome Web Browser (again)

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Today we updated’s programming.

The biggest fix, is that our site now works properly in current versions of Google Chrome. Our web based system for generating highly printable bingo cards is great… but once in a while we run into compatibility issues. For now, it’s fixed. We’ve tested in current Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari web browsers. Ironically, part of the programming fix was related to a compatibility tweak for Mozilla browser from years back. Mozilla users, if you actually still exist, you will need to use a different browser to use now.

At the same time, we made live a feature that we wrote for a custom bingo job a few months back. All bingo cards within a single run are now guaranteed to be unique. Previously, it was entirely random if a card was duplicated in a run – but it was highly, highly, unlikely. In fact, we programmed an email notification if the dupe-tester actually catches a dupe.

We had to hard-code a duplicate entry to actually make sure the dupe tester and the email notifier worked. The odds of duplicate cards that are randomly generated is extremely low – you can’t generalize exact odds, since every custom bingo card design is different.

The site has probably generated 1,000 card runs since the new code went live… and we haven’t been notified of a duplicate card yet. If we ever catch a dupe, we’ll be sure to post about it.

More code changes are on the way. It’s summer, traffic to is lower than normal.
