Fetchr - Bingo v5

Fetchr is a custom gamemode where you play in survival Minecraft with a 5x5 Bingo board.

Try to collect all 5 items in a line for a quick Bingo or all 25 items for a longer Blackout game as quickly as possible!

Example of a Bingo Card as shown in the Fetchr lobby:

General Information

Fetchr / Minecraft Bingo is quite a simple concept as it builds ontop of the vanilla survival gameplay. You will start with an empty inventory at a random, unknown spawn point within the world and get an experience similar to starting a new survival world.

Your goal is to get items from the Bingo Board. There are multiple goals that are detected by the pack:
  • Bingo: All 5 items in any of the rows, columns, or diagonals
  • Blackout: All 25 items on the board
  • 20 No Bingo: Get 20 items while avoiding any Bingo. This is the maximum number of items that can be obtained without triggering a Bingo and requires careful planning
  • Multi Bingo: Obtain multiple Bingos at once. This can be accomplished by obtaining items of two intersecting lines and getting the item at the intersection last, effectively unlocking a combination of 2-4 rows, columns and/or diagonals at once.

You may also play in either (or both at the same time):
  • Lockout Mode: Only one team can obtain each item, locking other teams out from scoring it. Once a team has obtained more items than any other team still can, this team will win.
  • Blind Mode: The card is not visible and items get revealed as any player gets them. Knowing possible items and mutual exclusivity from the category chests is expected for this mode.

Download and Installation


  1. Download the attached release file.
  2. Extract/unzip it to your Minecraft saves directory.
  3. Make sure you are using the correct Minecraft Version (currently 1.20.2)
  4. When you start Minecraft, you should now find the Fetchr map right at the top of your worlds. Just open the map now. You do not need anything else.


  1. Download the attached release file.
  2. Make sure you are using a supported version (currently 1.20.2, vanilla, or Fabric with Lithium. Paper/Spigot are not supported and may break the map in subtle ways)
  3. Extract/unzip it in the same directory as your server.jar file is located.
  4. Make sure your server.properties file is set according to here.
    • If you already have a custom server.properties, make sure all the settings mentioned in that file are set correctly.
    • If you don't have a custom server.properties override it with that file. When the server starts, all missing settings will be filled with default values
  5. Start the server - everything is setup now.

All goals are always detected. For instance, when going for a blackout, Bingo will be announced when you fullfill the requirement, but you can just keep playing.


For getting Bingo you need to obtain all 5 items in any of the rows, columns, or diagonals.


A blackout requires getting all 25 items on the board.

20 No Bingo

In a 20 no Bingo, you get 20 items while carefully avoiding obtaining a Bingo. This is the maximum number of items that can be obtained without getting Bingo.

Multi Bingo

For multi-Bingo, you get multiple Bingos at once. That means, obtaining items of intersecting rows, columns or diagonals, while getting the item at the intersection last. It is possible to obtain a double Bingo, triple Bingo, and quadruple Bingo.

Detailed Feature Overview

Custom HUD

While in-game you will have a bunch of custom HUD elements around your hotbar. This utilizes a custom font and does not require any mods.
The in-game custom HUD

The HUD can be customized in the lobby and elements can be moved however you prefer them to be layed out, or individual components can be removed.

Bingo Card

The Bingo card shows all items of the current game and a summary of which team obtained which item so far. Items obtained by your own team appear a little bit darker. Depending on the amount of teams, this display will be adjusted to fit all teams.

From the lobby, 10 unique team colors are available.


There is a timer that counts up in real time. This allows you to keep track of your time without any third party software. There is no time limit imposed by the map, but you can of course set your own goal. The timer icon also represents a functional Minecraft clock, showing the time within the current day.

Player position

There is a player position visible which shows the coordinates relative to the spawn point. The coordinates on your F3 screen will be extremely high and hard to parse / communicate, due to the random spawn point. The icon also functions as a regular compass and can be changed to appear like the Minecraft compass icon via the preference settings in the lobby.

Below the regular coordinates, there is by default a chunk coordinate display. This is useful during certain times. For example when following a treasure map, the treasure will always be located at chunk coordinates 9 9, or to keep track of chunk borders if you want to use the Lapis Trick

And below that, there is a separated Y coordinate display, which is useful when digging down without requiring F3.

Fetchr Seed

Finally, there is a display for the Fetchr seed. Similar to a Minecraft world, where the same seed will generate the same world, the same Fetchr seed will generate the same Bingo board and the same spawn point. When generating a card, you can choose to manually set a seed instead of using a random one.

Custom Worldgen

Fetchr uses custom Worldgen to make certain items more reliable in a Bingo run.

Compressed World

Biome sizes are decreased to make finding biome-specific items more fun and reliable, and structure frequencies are increased.

No Nether

Owing to technical limitations with custom worlds, the Nether is disabled.

No Ites

All stone variants that end in -ite have been disabled from generating. This includes diorite, andesite and granite. This was done as a qol change to reduce inventory clutter and make digging for stone consistent.

Granite may still generate as part of copper ore veins.

Ambient lighting

There is a constant lighting factor in the overworld, similarly to
the vanilla Nether. This allows seeing in caves clearly without torches.

Game Rule changes

  • Weather is always sunny
  • Phantoms, wandering traders and patrol spawns (which all work on a world-global timer) are disabled
