If you need to print more than 10 playing board enter the number manually in the Tablas number. To prevent printer paper jams or other problems and because most printers won't be able to load 500 pages, I recommend to print playing boards batches of 10, 50, 100 or 200 at the time, Loteria Workshop generates different playing boards every time the print command is call so it won't duplicate any playing board. Do not try to print more than 200 playing boards at one time.
