BBO PERK FOR SOCIALLY ISOLATING

March 24, 2020

Here's a PERK!  When you enter BBO you will see Messages listed on the right side of your screen.  One of those is "Socially Isolating?  Free Digital Bridge Care Pack for you"!  It's from Nick F in Sydney, Australia.  It lists:

  • two digital bridge books from Master Point Press

  • a lesson from Marty Bergen

  • a magazine from Australian Bridge

  • a newsletter with hands to play and quizzes from Vu-Bridge

  • a bridge crossword

  • a series of tips from Eddie Kantar

  • a series of Hands of the Week to play

 

Thanks to our River Landing (Colfax) Director, Jeannette Snipes for this information.

PLAYING ONLINE IS JUST A FEW CLICKS AWAY

March 22, 2020

Be well.  Stay inside.  Wash your hands.  Don't touch your face. Play bridge online.

 

You can play in a specially created game on Bridge Base Online (BBO) called "SUPPORT YOUR CLUBS..." and earn ACBL black masterpoints.  When you play in this specific game, you will be supporting your favorite club.  The system knows where you play most often and will automatically support that club each time you play.  Currently, three stratified games are offered at 10:00 am, 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm.  You can play on your computer, tablet or smartphone. 

New to BBO …  Click HERE  for a tutorial on how to play on BBO. 

For detailed information, Q&A, and updates, Click HERE.

Before you play, choose what device you will use, then follow these instructions::

  • From a COMPUTER (recommended), go to www.Bridgebase.com and become a member

  • From your TABLET, go to www.Bridgebase.com, or go to your APP STORE and download "Bridge Base Online" and play on their app

  • From your SMARTPHONE, go to your APP STORE and download "Bridge Base Online"

Simply log into your BBO account.  You will need to create one if you don’t already have one.  The account is free.

  • Note:  If you are NEW to BBO, when signing up for the first time we suggest you choose a username that will help your friends find you.  Consider using 169 (our Unit number), your last name and first initial for the remainder (example: 169SmithM) 

  • If one chooses, a Unit member can use the "Contact Us" form under "About Us" on the website to submit their name, BBO username, and email address to the CCBA webmaster who will create a registry to help our members find local partners to play online.  By submitting the form, one consents to having their information published.  The Registry can be found under "Clubs" - BBO Registry on the website.

 

Click on “ACBL World”

 

Click on “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game

  • Games pop up two hours before game time and, due to high demand, we recommend that you are logged in and registered two hours before the game.

  • Register to play by either adding your partner's username (they will need to be a member and logged in at the same time to accept the registration), or click on "Partnership Desk" and either add yourself to the list of single players with one of the two options (pay for yourself or have partner pay for you) or click and "Invite button" to invite someone to be your partner.  (To view a players profile, click on their usernames on the left).

  • Once you are registered, you can log off or do something else on your device.  Just make sure to log back in at least 10-15 minutes before game time.

  • At game time, you will automatically be taken to your table.  There is nothing else you need to do.
