It seems like the person calling the tiles has a bit of a disadvantage when placing tiles as they can't see what is left. Has anyone made a cheat sheet with all the tiles that the caller could use? That sure would be swell.

Someone mentioned using No Thanks cards and shuffling them. That could work.

I'm on the lookout for a cheap bingo cage to use.

Really? As the caller, I just ask the other players what's left.

Sure that would work but it would be easier to have all the tiles laid out in front of you without having to ask.

I like the idea of no thanks cards. I might steal that!

I downloaded a free random number generator app on my phone. Set it to pull a number between 1-36, and just skip any repeat results. Worked pretty well for my first play.

In the Google Play store, its the "Random number generator" by Waterplane.

Anyone know of a number generate that does not repeat numbers already generated (at least until all numbers are called)?

I just downloaded one, called Random Number Generator, by Skytrait. Pretty simple - you give it a range, say whether or not you want duplicates, and thats it.

It does show ads (which doesnt bother me)

I ended up just writing 1-36 on little chips and then tossed them in a bag. It works really well.

This could have the added advantage of letting everyone take turns drawing chips. I like it

I have some old poker chips that I'm going to use. I'll write the numbers 1 - 36 on 36 chips and pull them from a crown royal bag.

Doing this now as well. Had some really crappy cheap poker chips already - more fun than using an app.

I was hoping the No Thanks cards would work, but there are only cards numbered 3-35, so some numbers are excluded so that wouldn't work. I used an app for my phone but it does duplicate numbers. For now if there are 3 or fewer players, I think I'll put the 4th player tiles in a bag and draw from there.
